Good Strong Poles for Day Hiking

Verified Buyer Reviewed by X Country Ski Ad from Omaha, NE on Saturday, December 11, 2010
I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of these poles. They are well-made and seem very strong. Mine came with the snow baskets in addition to the feet for hiking. The poles are fully adjustable and lock into place firmly and securely. The only downside is that they are quite heavy, but for the money they are very good value. I am hiking a 2200 mile trip next year and will need something lighter for that. However, I will use these for day hiking and as an extra set of poles for cross country skiing. Great value for the money.
