Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just bought a second pair I have had these poles for just over a year. I use them several times a week, alternating between recreational use and professional use. I just took advantage of the REI Anniversary Sale pricing to buy a second pair so I can leave a pair in my locker at work and a pair at home. Best features: extremely lightweight; quick "snap open/snap and close" construction; straps adjust quickly and easily; compact length fits crosswise on my hip pack. It would be nice if the straps had the same padding as other Black Diamond poles, but they are very comfortable. They are expensive, but worth the money because they will last for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super awesome! I've been backpacking for about 2 years and just bought these a few weeks ago because I'm trying to lighten my gear. I used them last week on a 3-night/4-day trek through the southern Appalachian Trail including to the top of the highest shelter on the entire AT at 6k feet. I cannot say enough good things about these poles--they're sturdy, lightweight, durable, super easy to open and fold, as well as tuck into the side of my pack without taking up hardly any room. While trekking, I didn't come close to falling on the rocky, wet, leaf-covered terrain thanks to these poles, and they truly help you hoist your body weight up and down the hills. I also love that the tips are not metal. Say goodbye to stray plastic tip covers and missing baskets. Worth the cash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Carbon Z-Poles These are the first trekking poles I have ever bought and will never need another pair! I have used several other poles before I purchased these and had my heart set on another style until I held these. They are so light they will be hard to remember I'm holding them. They have no adjustment for length so you need to be sure before you buy them. I elected not to buy the cork grips because I hike with gloves on and the foam just felt better with gloves. You could not go wrong with these poles!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Freedom to Hike These lightweight/compact poles live in my daypack. I'm visually impaired and had lost much of my peripheral vision. These poles have given me freedom to hike on any type of trails, whereas as before getting these I was only hiking easy trails. (I had to look down a lot and missed scenery.) I've taken these on my travels to China, Vietnam, Cambodia, and more recently hiked the Camino in Spain and the Kumano Kodo in Japan. I wore the tips out on the 400 miles I did on the Camino, but they were easily replaced. On the Kumano Kodo, there were giant stone steps often up to my knees. The poles helped me up and down the many mountains. I think they are quite sturdy, as I put a lot of weight on them when I'm coming down the steep rocky trails. I use the 110 cm, I'm 5' 2" weight 125. Others hikers on my travels marveled at how light and compact they are. My fellow travelers often hear me say how much I love my poles. Great freedom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly outstanding! The best lightweight pole out there. Like a feather in your hand but really strong. Hiked on AT & other trails in North Carolina mountains and always felt safe going downhill knowing that these would stop me if I slipped. My wife just got her the same poles as she was hogging mine all the time. If you want truly lightweight equipment, look no farther. Know they are pricey but really worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trekking with the best After reading dozens of great reviews on a different brand of poles I bought them. I was really disappointed. Then an rei employee suggested these black Diamond poles so I gave them a try. After hiking Rough Trail through Red River Gorge when it was covered in ice and snow I knew I got good advice. These black Diamond carbon poles are light and super strong. Great trekking poles!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent - Durable and Lightweight/Convenient I use these poles for running trail ultras of 50 miles and up on steep and technical terrain. They are durable, have great non-slip hand grips and solid purchase with the points. Easily stowed or easy to carry in one hand when I'm not using them. I'd buy these again and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Run don't walk to buy these! Great lightweight poles--I have these in 120 cm. after using my adjustable poles Black Diamond Alpine CF poles (16.25 oz.) at 110, 115 and 120 cm. I prefer a length of 115 cm., but can work with 120 cm. TEN OUNCES for the PAIR!!! No other mass market pole comes even close. I used these for 500 miles on the Washington state PCT after having the Alpine CF's for 1100 miles in California. I thought often of how many times I'd swing the poles per day. 20 miles times 5,000 swings per mile per arm times 6 ounces=600,000 oz. >= 37,500 lb. that adds nothing to the hike. I woke up one morning and said, "Self, you need to lighten up. Pay for the light stuff and free yourself." The poles are stiff and strong, and they don't vibrate with aggressive poling. Excellent balance, neither tip nor handle heavy. Easy to pack, yes. The grip can be harsh for some users with the grooves and the straps need some softening. Not much else to say about these, except I wish they had a leash to prevent any possibility of me losing them. If I broke or lost them, I'd buy them again. These should be on your wish list that your relatives can chip in for as a birthday/X-mas gift.

I am considering a lightweight tent/tarp that uses trekking poles for support. Will that lack of adjust-ability make these poles a poor choice?

Asked by: Murph
Possibly, but not necessarily. The Z-poles are (when not engaged with the lock, but still fully set-up) about 47-50 inches tall. If that fits the range you need for a tarp tent (like the Z-packs series) then you'll be fine.

I'm 5'8" but have short legs and a long torso. Would the 110cm be a better option for me, or should I go with the 120cm?

Asked by: jorge99s
​Based on your height, the 120cm length poles are the better choice.

I am about 5'9" and weight 250lbs - will these poles stand up to this weight?

I'm short. When I stand flat-footed and rest my palm on the end of a meter-stick, my arm is at a 90-degree angle. Does the measurement shown include the grip? Or do you measure just the pole without the grip?

Asked by: jampuppy
The listed dimension is the overall length including the handle. We recommend sizing based on your height using the chart shown below the item description.

For the height recommendations is this for height with boots on? Barefoot i am 5'11" but with boots I imagine at least 6'. 10 Centimeter difference is a lot. I will be using it for backpacking primarily in the Sierra's and Distance running

Asked by: Munkaye
Sizing is determined by your height without your shoes on. If you are between sizes, we recommend sizing down if you are primarily trail running. If you are hiking and are between sizes, we recommend ordering a size up.
