If you are looking for a reasonably priced and quality trekking poles....look no further. I spent three weeks out west and used them in Yosemite, Arches, Bryce, Zion, Canyonlands, Capital Reef and many trails in between! My hikes varied in distance from 5 miles to 20+ miles, and I carried either my backpack or a day pack. The locking mechanisms are easy to use. I did have to readjust once during a hike, but I was on granite for about two miles straight using them pretty aggressively. I was originally going to fly, and they fit in my luggage just fine when collapsed fully down. They come with durable rubber tips, which in some places require the tips of poles to be covered. The grip is comfortable with a durable adjustable webbing strap. These poles are a great aid no matter the distance of you hike. They will help relieve the stress on knees while walking and provide added stability and balance. I plan on using them for the trails in the winter while snow shoeing.
