These are very good quality trekking poles, very lightweight, easily adjustable, but a foam gripping surface under the handles would be nice, as would a carrying bag for them when folded. A simple nylon drawstring bag couldn't cost a buck to include, and it would be very much appreciated - especially at the cost of these poles. My wife ordered Leki lightweight folding carbon fiber poles and got a bag like that which makes hers much easier to pack in our camper for trips, and much easier to carry when on the flats and she may not want to use them or wants to keep her hands free to use her camera, etc. Compared with her Leki poles, which have the bag, which have the below the handle gripping surface, which have a protective plastic 'sleeve' over the elastic shock cords to protect them when disassembled and folded, and which have an easier, more reliable and superior locking mechanism for the sections, I wish I'd gotten Lekis instead at this point....and at less cost and aboput the same weight.
