Reviewed by Charlie T from Florida on Saturday, December 12, 2015Not adjustable for length so there worthless if you have any climbing or ascending to do.. Hiking poles have to be
adjustable to get the right fit, otherwise your using them incorrectly..
Reviewed by Make from Nanjing on Sunday, August 25, 2013very light, convenient z-pole folding, perfect for long hiking, though kind of expensive.
Reviewed by gdunha from Ohio on Monday, May 13, 2013Pack down small and are light. As long as these last a few seasons they will be awesome
Reviewed by Doc B from Augusta, GA on Saturday, April 27, 2013These are not only light, but are the fastest and easiest to set up. Open the box from Sierra, take one pole and let the sections hang down unconnected. Then grab the top carbon fiber tube and pull of the cushioned hand grip out to extend the pole ... the other two sections self allign and seat thenselves.
Reviewed by Anonymous from Corte Madera on Monday, April 1, 2013Although these poles have not yet been put to the travel test, I have used them for a five-hour mountain hike--and they passed with five stars!
Being able to fit the poles into a carry-on is a time-saver. (I have not checked, as yet, with Airport Security as to whether poles are acceptable, however.)
