I have a pair of Komperdell Trekking poles, which I purchased about 6 years ago. They've been with me on trips all over the world, including Peru and Nepal along with the US. I LOVE them, they're light, can be collapsed down to fit in a suit case or snowshoe case, I've used them in mud, snow, and a...

These poles are light weight, sturdy, and collapse to a short length. However, unlike other Komperdell poles I have owned, the carbide tips both fell out within one hour on an easy trail. I returned them to STP and got another pair. On these new ones, I removed the carbide tips and used epoxy to secure them in place and clamped them tightly in the surrounding pole aluminum before the epoxy hardened. The carbide tips have remained in place on this set so far.

The poles seemed very functional, however, after 4 days of easy hiking in the San Juan mountains in Colorado, the insert in the tip of one of the poles has fallen out and inspection of another pole from a second pair showed that the insert was loose and falling out. Other than this failure, the poles were functional and comfortable.

These are fantastic poles and at the STP price you can't go wrong. I have used these on several long treks and they definitely do their job. The twist lock for height adjustment works very well and they are lite as a feather. Great for backpacking trips and long hikes. I highly recommend these poles!

I have only used these once so far. The treking poles were as expected, quality product with ease of Adjustment. They do weigh 4 ounces more than the stated 1 lb per set. I also purchased the rubber tips since the ice ends cause too much shock to the hands on hard surfaces, which is most of the terrain where I hike. They are not as nice or light as my 100% carbon fiber set I got from Costco several months ago, but a great - not made in China - alternative. Overall, another great STP bargain.
