Discontinued or prior year model. LEKI's Micro Stick trekking poles boast durable construction and a highly packable design. Inside the 7075 aluminum shaft is a Kevlar cord, a Speed Lock mechanism under the grip for quick and easy assembly.

plan on using these for hunting season so haven't pulled them out of the packaging yet, but they sure do look great. I especially love the way the light reflects off the shiny plastic bag and how they fold up conveniently to not require an awkwardly large cardboard box for shipping in that would then have to be broken down to fit in my recycling can.

I actually have been using a pair of black diamond Z poles and love them. I wanted to get my dad a new set of poles so I found these online and of course I had to take them out of the box and study them before wrapping for Christmas. Look solid, the locking system is different then the z-poles but felt solid and they carry the Leki name so I feel confidant they will work great for dad.

Yes, it folds indeed down to about 15 inches so it fits in most bags and backpacks. It is easy to transport as it comes with its own bag and velcro strap . The price you pay for that convenience is it is not adjustable in length. If you get 110 cm pole, it is a 110 cm pole uphill and downhill. I would recommend it as a second pair of poles especially if you fly a lot with your poles.

These collapse into 3 sections so you can place them inside your pack while not in use. The only downside is they're a fixed length once assembled. Sometimes I like adjusting poles longer while trekking down steep terrain, or crossing streams on precarious logs and shortening them on the uphill. I'm 5'10" and went with the 120 length. They seem to be about the right length for general trekking.
