Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not only for Women If you don't require your poles to be longer than about 4 feet (125 cm), these poles will be lighter because you don't carry the extra (never used) length inside. They seem to be the lightest aluminum poles I've seen. They also compact to 21 inch length disassembled (a quick, easy operation) and fit conveniently in carry-on luggage. There is no shock absorber, so if you really want that, you can buy the slightly longer and heavier model with shock. I am a regular hiker with a leg damaged 40 years ago. I've used poles for much of those years. These are light and work really well for me. They look like the same pole that was sold previously as the compact model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these hiking poles I got tired of my hiking poles when they started slipping and adjusting/tightening them was so difficult. Saw some of these poles and rushed to REI to purchase them. I use them for day hiking in the mountains. I love the fact that the handle is extended below the grip, so to climb up for short bits of time, I can just grab below the handle for a few minutes and then go back to the regular handles without having to adjust them. Unable to do this with my others. Also, for continuous climbing they are easy to adjust for longer periods of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knee saver on the downhills! This is my first set of trekking poles and yesterday I took them out on an 8.25 mile, 1200' elevation change hike in Marin County. I have had terrible knee problems all my life and found steep descents nearly unbearable of late. Not only did they save the day, my companion (who introduced me to trekking poles) was so impressed with their quality and quietness that she's going out to buy a pair today! They are light, sturdy, quiet (no clicking), and easy to adjust. Very, very happy with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great poles! I am very happy with all aspects of these poles. They are light in weight, have a nice swing and are comfortable to grip. My favorite feature is the locking mechanism. It is super simple and easy to adjust while providing a strong stable pole. They compact to a really nice size and the color is my favorite! Very satisfied with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone who wants a nice simple set of poles!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great functionality; markings wear off I wish I could give half star ratings - I would rate these a solid 4.5 stars. They are very easy to use, lightweight, and well-made. I find them easy to adjust with the flip locks, and the locks stay engaged without even hinting at loosening over time. The writing on the poles, along with the Black Diamond logo on top of the handles, is reflective at nighttime which helps for finding your poles or indicating where the pole is should it be part of your tent/tarp set-up. The loops are contoured for each wrist (I just recently noticed the R and L markings!) and are quite comfortable. The grips remain "grippy" even with sweaty hands during summer hikes. I did purchase the BD rubber tips for these, as there is a lot of limestone trail here in central Texas, and I can't stand the clicky sound of metal to rock. I also think it helps with Leave No Trace, as the rubber shoes prevent the poles from scratching the rocks. I took off a star because despite the two levels of adjustment, the markings are wearing off. I have only had my poles about six months, and I use them a few times a month. The poles telescope into themselves for compact storage, but the shafts apparently rub the writing off. This is unfortunate, because the numbers help you ensure that you can adjust your poles consistently each time you use them. If BD could find a way to fix that issue, I would rate these a solid five stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank Goodness for Poles! I do a lot of mountain backpacking, and finally decided to get poles for the Inca Trail trek I did recently. What a life saver! These ones are lightweight and fit my hand well- very comfortable. I also bought the grippy rubber tips and liked those as well. The poles became like an extension of my arms- a big knee saver!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT! Love these poles! Glad my short height is finally paying off, and I'm saving extra weight with these shorter poles. Was initially worried about carpal, but after putting the wristlets on the correct way, found it was a total non-issue. Was initially torn between these and the folding non adjustable poles, and am glad I got these. Definitely found myself adjusting my poles during creek crossings, on slanted trails, and during other hiking events. Relieves pressure on my knees during the downhills, and makes me faster! Total win. If you're thinking about it, don't hesitate. Also love the wristlets, they're super comfortable. The color is the women's "blue", which I think the outdoor industry could get away from soon please (all my gear is the same color!), but it is a happy color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best buy ever I bought these poles a week before we left on our 4,000 mile, 10 state, 6 National Parks trip in our camper. We hiked quite a bit but I was so glad to have these in Mesa Verde National Park. The trail was beautiful but went over, under and through steep rocks on the side of a cliff. The poles really helped me feel safer and more stable. I was able to keep my acrophobia under control! The poles are lightweight, easy to adjust to the proper height and store easily in small places. Thank you so much to the Tacoma REI store personnel who helped me pick them out!

How durable are the foam handles on this product? How do the foam handle's durability compare to the cork and rubber handles.

Asked by: edmwbr
The foam handles are very durable. Compared to cork, they are more pliable and less-prone to cracking. Compared to rubber, they might not last as long since rubber is a heavier / denser material.

Never used poles before... Is there a noticeable difference without shock absorbing capabilities? Is there a need for rubber tip? These will be used on various substrates and with activities that involve large elevation changes.

Asked by: NWbound
You will notice a difference between a pole that has anti-shock features and one that does not. Rubber tips are recommended if you plan on using the poles on harder surfaces such as concrete.

What characteristics make these women's poles? My (female) wife purchased a pair and they seem a good fit me also. I'm male and can't see a reason these are not simply unisex.

Asked by: kip-OR-USA
Women’s trekking poles tend to be shorter and have smaller grips than unisex poles, making them ideal for hikers with smaller hands. Feel free to use the women's Trail Trekking Poles if they are a good fit.

Is there a way to remove the loops on each handle? (i am having to pack with significant attention to shaving ounces off of pack weight)...   If the loops can come off, can they be replaced when i return from my trek?      Many thanks...

Asked by: Vangie
The wrist straps on the Trail Women's Trekking Poles are not designed to be removed.
