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...

    Couldn't be without these. They keep me steady and balanced so that I don't fall and break a hip. Love them.

    I bought these trekking poles as a gift for my sister. The only problem we had with them was that they didn't come with instructions for how to adjust and fit them to the user, which was frustrating. Otherwise, they are very nice!

    they are very hard to adjust for height and there were no instructions on proper usage

    I have high-end over $200 trekking poles but bought these for my dad who goes on short hikes and they work great for the money.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jaimee Hikes from South Carolina on Tuesday, November 10, 2015
    I've used these poles for about 27 miles so far and am pretty impressed. While I don't necessarily feel there is anything particularly special about these poles, they are sturdy and get the job done. I appreciate the added stability and core engagement I get from them while hiking on a variety of terrain. I do get just a bit of rub (no actual blisters) from the rubber grips. Perhaps cork would be better. Also they telescope at two points and only one of the points is marked with measurements so it does take a second to make sure that both poles are at the same height. But all things considered, I got these for a GREAT price and will get lots of use out of them. Wouldn't hesitate to pick up another set for my kids or recommend to a friend who wants to give trekking poles a shot.

  • 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.
      Answered on 11/17/2014 7:19:40 PM by Captain Iguana from Alaska
    • 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.
      Answered on 11/17/2014 7:39:08 PM by T the Rocky's Destroyer from Colorado
    • Answer I don't know if you can purchase snow baskets. The ones that come with them are small, not for deep soft snow.
      Answered on 11/17/2014 9:12:21 PM by Superslug from Washington
    • 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 Mine came with baskets but I have yet to put them on (no snow yet).
      Answered on 11/18/2014 2:51:36 PM by Ed from NYC
    • Answer Yes there are snow baskets available that can be taken off if needed.
      Answered on 11/19/2014 10:09:58 AM by Andy from South Dakota
    • 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.
      Answered on 11/8/2015 12:16:56 PM by AZHiker from Flagstaff
    • 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.
      Answered on 1/25/2014 7:08:49 AM by Alpine from Alpine Wyoming
    • 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.

  • Question “How do you get the anti-shock to work?”
    Asked on 2/16/2013 12:00:00 AM by Yankee Lady from NJ
    • Answer They work just like the Komperdell poles. You extend and tighten the top and second section. Then just give a twist about 1/4 inch you will feel a click. This is a link to a video I did that on our web site that shows how to do this.|

    • Answer The Mountainsmith Pinnacle Trekking Poles are adjustable from 27" to 53". Thanks for asking, I hope this helps.

    • Answer We have had no reports of the Mountainsmith Trekking Poles bending under pressure.
      Answered on 5/14/2012 12:00:00 AM by Prod. Spec. Ryan from Sierra Trading Post
    • Answer Well, it depends on what you call 'undue' pressure. I hike the Catskills, some of the rockiest, steepest, muddiest trails in the US, and they've worked great. I'm 5' 8", 165 lbs, and have never been concerned about them.||For the price, buy them. If you manage to break them under normal usage, you've set a baseline for what you really need - a pretty inexpensive lesson, I'd say.

    • Answer With Mountainsmith Trekking Poles the middle section retracts the same way as the bottom section does.
      Answered on 11/8/2011 12:00:00 AM by Customer Care from Sierra Trading Post
    • Answer Just hold the mid section in one hand and the handle in the other and twist. There will be a small click feeling when the sections unlock. If you have the handle in your right hand, twist with your right hand away from your body to unlock the sections.
      Answered on 12/30/2011 12:00:00 AM by Raykid from Dubois, WY
    • Answer Grip both pole sections. Twist the lower section counterclockwise relative to the upper section, like you are unscrewing it. Do not twist the narrow connector between the sections. Likewise, to tighten them, grab both sections and twist the lower section clockwise, like you are tightening a screw. The little "click" you feel at the end turns the anti-shock option on or off. If you are loosening them from the anti-shock position, you will first feel the click. Just keep turning to loosen the sections.

    • Answer keep twisting like you do on the bottom section.
