These are what you would expect from BD, good quality poles that collapse small enough to put into a medium size backpack.

    I've had lots of bad luck with BD ski gear in the past, but the super low price of these poles sucked me in. My mistake. These are light and pack up very small, but they're not durable and won't last in the mountains. The tips (about one inch beneath the basket) broke off both of the poles within the first two days of back country skiing with them. They were still usable, however, so I put off sending them back. But after a few weeks of use, they basically fell apart while skinning and I was unable to extend them. I'd recommend Leki or Komperdell, BD has no sense of quality control.

    Quality BD poles for about 1/3 MSRP of the current version. Fold / extend easily and lock solid when deployed. Flick lock section is not removable, so these cannot be used with the BD snow saw.

    Very often when a device is modified to reduce weight, size, etc., the is a compromise to achieve those desired benefits. When I ordered these poles I was very hopeful, based upon the ratings and reviews I found, and I was not disappointed! The mechanism for breaking these poles into their short, stowage length was slick, simple and didn't add significant weight. Simplicity was the key. The push-button/telescoping design to collapse them is great. The additional adjustment at the top end allows excellent range of adjustment. For example, the adjustment range of the length I ordered will accommodate me (at 6'2") and my wife (5'4") for hiking, downhill and cross-country!

    Very slick.

    I am planning a trip to Europe this fall that will entail a lot of walking. I am in my late 60s with back problems. Walking with hiking poles allows me to walk at least twice as far as without them. These fold up and will easily fit in my carry-on bag (we travel light). I removed the snow baskets and put rubber tips over the steel ones. Great product!

    Great adjustability and height. Light enough and easy enough to stow in pack and snowboard down after hiking to a peak. recommend
