These seem well-made and I expect them to serve well as an introduction this newfangled (to me) way of hiking. A word about adjusting the length (which is not described here, nor in the info that comes with the product, nor on Mountainsmith's webpage describing the poles). Do not attempt to use th...

    My wife and I wanted to try hiking poles, decided we couldn't go wrong with these for the price. While the adjusting clamps were initially a bit tight, they now work just fine. These poles work fine for both my wife and I (just ordered my own pair!) and I'm 6'3", 250 # so after initial use anyway they seem to be well built. If you're a first timer like me, don't hesitate--hiking poles will transform your hiking experience!

    I purchased these trekking poles primarily to use on the Inca Trail and unfortunately they did not perform as they should have.
    Trekking poles have to have rubber tips to protect the ancient Inca rocks (and also provide grip), so this was one of the deciding factors in choosing the Mountainsmith brand.
    On day 1 the rubber tips on my husband's poles wore right through and the same happened to mine on the morning of day 2.

    We had to continue wrapping the tips in duct tape throughout the trek which was both inconvenient and used our precious duct tape!
    I will now have to arrange STP to send me new tips as replacements.

    Thick, sturdy and very comfortable. They are not fancy or high tech, but are perfect for doing the job they are intended for and at this price I don't worry about using them often.

    I've been using these for winter hiking and snowshoeing for a couple years now. The price is right for my budget at this time. I had to buy a second pair because my dog ran into one and bent it so I couldn't collapse them anymore to put them in my pack. They are light weight so I don't mind packing them along on all my hikes. Having poles have saved my from several mishaps on steep downhill terrain. I like the tip options for all trail conditions. My niece calls them ol' folks poles, but she was more than happy to borrow them for a difficult stream crossing.

    This is my second pair of theses walking poles. I still have my first pair for about 3 years now. I use the poles just about everyday. I would not bed able to walk my dog without them. I use theses poles for hiking in the woods. They help me to be more stable, so I'm not falling all the time. They help to support my legs and back. These are great for everyone.

  • Question “Are snow baskets available for these trekking poles?”

    Asked on 11/17/2014 6:19:50 PM by Curly from Oregon
    • Answer Yes, it does come with snow baskets. They are removable for your convenience to be able to use them in dry rocky conditions.

    • Answer They do include a fairly rudimentary pair of snow baskets. Solid molded plastic and seam to stay secure fairly well. They are more than serviceable but not sure they could be trusted to stay attached on an aggressive trail. I haven't had the chance to use them with the baskets attached, yet. For the price, not bad, though.

    • Answer I don't know if you can purchase snow baskets. The ones that come with them are small, not for deep soft snow.

    • Answer When I bought ours from STP, they actually came with the snow baskets along with rubber tips that can be taken on and off. So, from my limited experience of one purchase, these are included. Hope this helps.

    • Answer No snow baskets were provided with the poles but the manufacturer might have them available. I never intended using the poles in snow so I paid it no mind. I might add that they are very good for normal hiking and easily match the performance of some expensive poles I had purchased several years ago.

    • Answer Yes there are snow baskets available that can be taken off if needed.

    • Answer Snow baskets are available from the manufacturer in a 3.5" width (check the Mountainsmith website). If you read the description, you will see that the baskets that come with these poles are trekking baskets, not sufficiently wide enough for soft or deep snow.

    • Answer Both poles together weigh 1Lb 5oz. with out the snow baskets or rubber tips. With the tips or baskets on the pair comes to about 1 Lb 9oz.
      Note: In freezing weather the snow baskets will become brittle and break.These are great trekking poles for about any conditions.

    • Answer If you've read me review, you'll know that I only have one pole left. Having just weighed it, I got just about 310 grams, or, 11 oz. I removed the straps, (when I fall, I try and get those buggers as far away from me without losing them as I can,) which probably adds another 30 grams or so. All tolled: 340 grams for one, 680 for two, or; 12 oz for one, 1 lb 8 oz for two.

    • Answer I just put the two poles together on a scale and weighed them at 1 lb. 6 oz. with the baskets.
