by fromSame as the men's but "raspberry" I just wanted to point out to anyone who is interested that the larger size (105 - 125 cm) of this product has the exact same specs as the smaller of the two options for the unisex Black Diamond Distance FL Z-Pole Trekking Poles; the only difference I was able to find is that the unisex version comes in "Aspen Gold" with traditional black grips, and these labeled Women's only come in "raspberry radiance" with purple grips. I just thought this fact might be helpful to anyone who is interested in the women's version, as they currently have no reviews. The reviews on the unisex version are likely applicable, and if you are interested in the 105-125 cm size but don't want girly colors, check out the unisex option.

by fromGreat poles! The adjustment system in comparison to the old twist and lock I replaced it with is infinately superior! I was a little worried the nice soft handles would get slick in the rain but they performed well in an afternoon thunderstom in the rockies! Quite frankly they are worth the money (I admit I got them on sale) - my knees love me!

by fromThe last trekking poles I'll ever buy Kudos to Black Diamond for making trekking poles for ladies that are strong, lightweight and easy to carry. The best feature is how they fold up to a size that fits into the side pocket of my backpack for easy carrying. With my old poles, I could only hand carry them when I wasn't using them and it was so awkward and tiring! If I tried to put them in my pack, I would inevitably poke a hike buddy or myself. These great poles fold up, slip into their own bag and stow away easily. They are so lightweight, I didn't think they'd have the same shock absorbing properties as my Lekis but they do. In fact, they are better. They are so easy to adjust. The bottom two sections pull out and snap into place, no adjustment needed. The adjustment comes on the top section, which pulls out and is clearly marked so you get the same length every time. Easily locks into place. I'm 5'1" and 100 cm is perfect for me. I'm going to donate my outdated two pair of poles.
