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...

    These were a great price and they quite comfortable. On first use I thought they my hurt my hands where they were rubbing on the hand grips but they were fine and worked really well. The sock suspension worked well on the downhills. Easy to adjust but a little tricky to be sure they are locked out completely before putting lots of pressure on them. Though I think as you use them you'll figure out how to twist them fully closed.

    My family just started hiking so we are casual hikers. These trekking poles are great for what we do. They are light and sturdy. They actually have a spring inside so it gives it a little bit of shock absorption, which is s nice surprise because it wasn't mentioned in the description.

    Looked in the stores, sticker shock. These work, easy to adjust. If you have carpal tunnel issues, weight may exacerbate condition, but using any walking sticks may do so. These are not the lightest, but an attractive color and simple to use. Perfect starters to see if helpful and if you will use.

    I'd give them a 4 simply because their not perfect, but for less than the std STP price of $24, you really can't go wrong here. Bought these intending for my boy to use and first try in my hand was a little heavy. Note that I was using very light BD poles before. Tested them out on Cheoah Bald this weekend and they performed very well, and never noticed the extra weight. Little bit of vibration that is really just something I noticed rather than an annoyance. There is a little anti-shock spring that you don't feel along the way, but I'm sure helps more than it seems. Just awesome at this price point. I was going to replace my locked up BD Alpine's with a cheaper Leki, but may well get another pair for myself. I think the only negative thing I can say is about twist poles in general... when stopping for the day to setup camp, I was very sweaty and could not operate the twist lock to extend them for my tarp - or not immediately anyway, I just needed to cool down some and towel off. If I were on the trail and didn't have time to wait to cool down before I could adjust them, would be an issue, but then I'm pretty much set and forget when I'm hiking. Haven't run into terrain yet where I had to alter the length of the poles mid-hike.

  • 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 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.
