Great basic trekking poles.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by First time hiker from Oregon on Monday, September 12, 2016
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.
