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...

  • Great product
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by JDP from Prescott Valley, AZ on Monday, September 24, 2018
    Performed excellent on the Grand Canyon Rim 2 Rim we completed yesterday and the hikes leading up to it. Only small complaint was the “flanges” or flairs at the end that I assume are for hiking through softer terrain fall off easily. Otherwise they are great with the added spring for some shock absorption being a nice added feature. Not sure what other more expensive poles have over these. These seemed just as light and as well built as others in our group that paid way more.

  • I drank the Kool-Aid!
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Taka-Sha from NC on Tuesday, August 7, 2018
    I was a one walking stick man for years back when I considered myself a backpacker. I recently bought the set of Mountain Smith Pinnacle Trekking Poles, and I am a fan. Like I said I was a one stick guy. I liked a stick that was about head high and organic, but then I got out of Backpacking. I used these poles on a day hike with my kids last weekend and I absolutely loved them. I used them up hill and down hill, big steps and little steps..... they helped the old and out of shape former backpacker almost keep up with his 8 year olds! I would recommend these to anyone that may be out of hiking shape or may be having some knee issues. Win Win!
  • Good Poles
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mission/Disaster Worker from Oklahoma on Saturday, August 4, 2018
    I have used these poles for several trips now, in rugged areas mostly, and find them to be as advertised, and they are very good for standard hiking. They are of lighter weight metals, as they mention, but I still will use them for rugged trips also. If you are fairly heavy, say 200 lbs. or more, then I would suggest heavier weight poles for serious hiking.

  • “How do I get new baskets? Mine both broke off the first time I used them. ”
    Asked by JB from WA on 1/19/2017 5:11:56 PM
    • Three suggestions - go to your local Walmart, REI or order a new pair from the Mountainsmith website, $5.95 a pair -
      Answered on 1/19/2017 8:05:10 PM by Jimmy from Atlanta
    • First I'd contact the manufacturer. If they're no help, new baskets are readily available from stores like REI Co-Op. Good luck! (I don't use baskets, but the tips on these poles do tend to fall off easily.)
      Answered on 1/19/2017 9:14:01 PM by Paula from New Mexico
    • You should probably contact the manufacturer, or STP customer service. Mine are still fine, though I don't really need them since I don't use the poles in snow.

    • I have not tried myself but I assume that contacting Mountainsmith would be the most likely option. I have not broken mine yet but have thought about getting spares in case they discontinue this model and/or replacement parts. Please update us on your progress

  • “Are this collapsable?”
    Asked by Bella1 from California on 12/6/2016 6:34:09 PM
    • Yes the poles can be collapsed down to 27" so you could put them in a backpack.
      Answered on 12/7/2016 5:20:14 AM by So. Cal. Hiker from Southern California
    • They can be shortened and extended. It is basically two parts. The thicker pole with the handle and the narrower pole at the end. The narrow part can be adjusted for the length. But it is not collapsable.
      Answered on 12/7/2016 5:57:02 AM by Blue Crab from Maryland
    • The poles are telescoping and can be condensed to approximately 27 inches long or expanded up to 53 inches but they do not "collapse" in the sense that a wading staff used for fishing collapses and folds up.

  • “Are snow baskets available for these trekking poles?”
    Asked by Curly from Oregon on 11/17/2014 6:19:50 PM
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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 Doug_O from Washington
    • 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.
      Answered on 11/17/2014 9:19:12 PM by SkeeterB767 from Colorado
    • 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.

    • Yes there are snow baskets available that can be taken off if needed.
      Answered on 11/19/2014 10:09:58 AM by Canyon Runner from South Dakota
    • 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.

  • “Does one pole weight 1 lb 8 oz or is that the weight of 2 poles together. One place it seems to indicate the pair weight -vs- the individual weight. Please clarify. Thanks”
    Asked by Hillienc from WNC on 1/25/2014 7:00:27 AM
    • 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
    • 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.
      Answered on 1/26/2014 4:43:37 AM by Adam from Jackson Heights, NY
    • I just put the two poles together on a scale and weighed them at 1 lb. 6 oz. with the baskets.
