Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific product After hiking my whole adult life without poles, I purchased these uncertain of what use they would be. My experience was excellent during my recent trips to Colorado and the Alps. First, the poles made going downhill more secure, and also took some of the jarring load off my quads. I would not hike rough terrain without them anymore. Second, the quality of the poles is outstanding. The aluminum shafts, the joints, the tips, and the handles were all top quality. And last, the knock down design is very well thought out. The poles are quickly and securely both expanded and put back into their collapsed form, and they fit perfectly into my checked bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More Noise and Vibration Than I Expected I purchased these particular hiking poles because they collapse to fit in a suitcase better than my current telescoping poles. So far they have worked OK but time will tell how durable they are. The one drawback I have noticed is their vibration and associated noise. Both improved somewhat after I added rubber tips (not included) but I still do not like their vibration and noise. The are pretty solid (I don't think that they are going to break or bend) but am a little surprised that Leki has made a pole with this much vibration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent trekking poles at good price Bought these poles to replace similar ones that I lost (?) after a recent hike. Prior poles were REI brand which I was quite satisfied with but no longer available and with recent REI sale was able to get Leki's for same $. Break down to 12-14" which fits easily into carry on luggage and this was important for me. Unfortunately this feature not available on many styles. Have now used these on several 4-5 day hikes on rocky trails and very pleased with performance and would definitely purchase again. Can't comment yet on durability but confident with Leki brand and don't expect to be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great poles. My current favorites. My current favorites (and I have owned about a dozen different pairs of various makes and models). Note that I am NOT writing this review the day (or hour) after taking these out of the box. Rather, I AM writing this review after using the Trek’s since the end of March. They have been through lots of ice [this winter was icy in the ADKs (Northern New York State) and I hiked until early May wearing microspikes], ADK mud, and 5 days in the Northern Sierras. That would be 115 miles in the ADKs and 40 miles in the Sierras. With 155 miles on them they are still in very good condition. Here is why I like them. #1. I wanted a pair that would fold up small enough to comfortably fit in my suitcase for traveling. These will fit in a briefcase and even INSIDE a daypack. #2. I wanted a pair that would be sturdy and otherwise perform the functions of a pair of hiking poles. #3. I wanted a pair in which I could switch out baskets. This is most important if you plan on snowshoe hiking in winter where you would want to swap out the summer small baskets for the larger, ski-pole like, snow baskets. In terms of miscellaneous features that I would have never thought of before buying these, I like the fact that they are comfortable to grip by holding onto the “top” — this comes in handy when you are walking downhill. For me this means I can set them for one length and grips them “low” when going uphill and “high” when going downhill without fussing with adjustments. On the otherhand, the length adjustment for is pretty easy and not a big deal to use. But, for varied terrain it is nice to always be able to optimize your grip from moment-to-moment. My only quibble is that they do NOT include the winter baskets with the pole. Only the 3-season baskets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leki Advantage is in the Handle My Leki Micro Vario Ti Cor-Tec trekking poles replaced a pair of another make that I purchased on sale before Christmas 2014. I came to learn during some technical hikes on unmarked trails in the Adirondack High Peaks that pole design and features are important. On my old pair, the top of the grips cracked due to stress while descending and one ripped off to the point it was dangling, requiring a duct tape repair. REI credited the value and I bought these Leki's. Here's why: - The rounded top, palm shaped handle is key for anyone doing serious descending. As my old poles failed, I could see my friend using his Leki Cristallo's with success. The shape of these handles allow one to grip them many ways. Being rounded is key on descents so they don't dig into your palm. - The tops of the handles are solid, not porous foam. They will hold up. I have not seen a similar top on any other make. - I chose the Micro Vario over the less expensive Cristallo's for one main reason - there is rubber grip on the shaft that runs several inches below the main grip allows one to just grab the pole in this position when ascending a steep area or an occasional boulder. This is perfect when terrain is not steady. - The handles themselves look like cork in photos but they are really a composite of sorts with cork embedded. Basically, they have a classic look but they are pretty solid and would not chip away like raw cork might. - The pair comes in a red sack that has a second cord and cinch about 1/4 from the bottom, allowing one to tuck in most of the sack into a smaller size and close it up. This not only reduces it's size but also could serve to hold alternate tips or baskets. - The folding design has pros and cons. They are compact but could not be mounted to the holders on a backpack like straight poles. Most of the backpacking I've done is on rough terrain so the poles are in my hands anyway. Websites have few, if any, photos of the details of this pole and I didn't make time to add some here, but you can search and find my video review if you like. Bottom line, technical hikers will really appreciate Leki design features. You get what you pay for...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the poles, will fit in my Motorcycle Luggage Who would think that $one hundred forty bucks would be worth paying for a pair of hiking sticks! I am a believer now! They are strong, open and close very easily, they crunch down to a very small package (thus they fit in my motorcycle luggage container by Honda) and they keep me healthy! The reason I need then is because when I pump my arms with some load on them, my body then circulates fluids better through my arms when I am hiking. When you walk for 8 hours, and don't have poles, for me personally, my hands swell up with fluid and sometimes really start to bother me. Not when I am using poles. Somehow the brain signals the circulation system to not bypass the arms just because the legs are doing the majority of the work, but to also take fluids out of the arms and hands. Purchase thes great poles if you hike a lot and really value your body!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product; handles could be bigger I love the way this product folds up. It fits perfectly in my day pack. Very sturdy. My only complaint is that the handles seem too small for a man's hand.

New to the world of trekking, and I was curious about the versatility on this pair of poles. I participate in winter sports that can require snowshoes, would these poles be appropriate for winter use as well as warm(er)/dry weather? Thanks!

Asked by: BuckOfTheMountain
These poles can be used in the snow, but we recommend purchasing snow baskets. They will help the poles perform much better in snow. You can find them online here: https://www.rei.com/product/750121/leki-snowflake-trekking-pole-snow-baskets-pair

I'm a big fan of Leki trekking poles and when I fly I almost always utilize a carry-on to avoid checking a bag. Will TSA allow these poles to be packed in a carry-on, or are they required to be packed in checked baggage?

Asked by: Clemson Tiger
TSA will not allow trekking poles to be packed in a carry-on bag, they need to be packed in your checked luggage. For more travel information, please consult TSA's website.

Help! The poles sections come apart when in use. Nothing seems to be securing the sections of the pole to one another. The tension of the cord is insuffient to hold them together. Is something missing from this set? 

Asked by: Frances
Put the pole together and secure the external lever lock. One inch below this lock the diameter of the shaft is slightly reduced. There is a half inch section that is separate from second to the lowest shaft. Grab this small section and pull down. Once you can get a full grip, pull the section down sharply. You will hear a snap and small push button will pop out to secure the shaft from sliding down.

What are the correct replacement carbide tips and are foam replacement grips available? I like the poles, but both foam grips ripped after 9 months and 1500 miles. It's a poor design. The foam grips slide down the shafts and eventually collapse and rip.

Asked by: MrPickle
The carbide tips you will need are the Leki Carbide Universal Flex Tips. https://www.rei.com/product/603191/leki-carbide-universal-flex-tips-pair For replacement of the foam grips, please contact Leki directly.
