Just broke these in a few days ago with a day hike to the top of Charleston peak in southern Nevada. 17 mile round trip with 4500 ft of elevation gain. Recently started using trekking poles on my hikes, what a difference! takes LOTS of strain/stress off the knees both climbing and descending, and great for helping keep your balance too. Had an older cheaper set of poles, but constantly worked loose, no such problems with these poles, and the grip/ wrist straps were very well designed.
