Quick to make it work

I am a avid backpacker and love getting outdoors. I had been looking at different Leki hiking poles, and have only heard good things about them. I was pretty pumped when I saw these on STP for a pretty low cost. I like the speed lock feature because it allows me make adjustments and set up my shelter a little easier.

When I the Cristallo Poles came, I opened the package and noticed they weren't the color I was expecting. I had assumed they would be the orange color as shown on the website. I ended up getting this weird teal/blue color. Honestly it didn't bother me it wasn't the color I thought because it did say "assorted colors", but the color I got was a little "girly" looking for my style. I talked with Customer Service and they were more than willing to make it work for me. I ended up returning the poles for a set of orange ones like the image shown.

Though it took a little more work to get them here, I am really happy with them. These will allow me to set my shelter up and give me more versatility on the trail compared to my fixed hiking poles I had. I plan on using these all summer and on the JMT.
