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...

    I went on a three day hike that included a lot of climbing and descending. I relied heavily on these poles. One of the hiking baskets broke under the heavy use but Mountainsmith is sending me a new set. I am a big guy, 270 lbs. and a 40 lb pack and these poles did great.

    I need an extra leg since my accident, and these do fine. Grips are well shaped, but not super comfy.

    I bought these poles to help me on vacation. They were perfect! I had injured my right knee in May.
    After consulting with my Ortho Surgeon he confirmed that it was bone on bone due to Osteo Arthritis.
    I knew I would want to be walking a lot, and had a good friend tell me how much the trekking poles that he bought
    had helped him before knee surgery. I bought the poles to insure I could handle rougher terrain, and keep going.
    These were perfect! I can not guarantee that everyone will enjoy the benefits that I got from these, however I would highly recommend a pair of these or other trekking poles, to help anyone walk longer, stronger, and easier if you have any knee problems. These made my long 3-5 mile hikes on rough terrain possible. Really helped on the down hills when I was having the most pain. Get yourself a pair. They will help you get through the long rough trails.

    I bought these for a hiking trip I was planning. I had them less than a week when I took them on a 3 day, 20 mile trip. They functioned well out of the box. The rubber or metal tips both gripped well on the rocky trail. The poles adjusted well (I err'd on the side of not tight enough since others had complained of overtightening). Even so, I put substantial weight on them bending down to filter water and standing back up with no slippage.

    The only thing I would consider a downside is that the grips are rubber instead of cork. This wasn't a big deal until it got hot on the first day and my hands started to slip/slide on the grips. On day 2 it rained for most of the day which created a similar problem.

    Since we weren't interested in buying expensive trekking poles for the casual hikers in the household, we bought 3 pairs of these for a recent 3 day hiking trip. They worked well, though one strap came off (1 out of 6); since my son doesn't like using the straps anyways, my daughter simply traded her defective one with him. All things considered, they worked quite well and I'm glad we had them with us. They provided nice stabilization on creek crossings, as well as making steep uphills and downhills much more manageable. There are a few features on my husband's nicer Leki poles (e.g. differently designed "head" that allows more variations in grip) that these don't have, but I don't think a casual or beginner hiker would really notice the trade off with such a great price point.

  • 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.

    • 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.
