Carbon Fiber Trekking Pole
These things are sweet. Light as a feather, and stiff as a board. I love the additional grip down low under the handles. Adds way more versatility on steeper grades.
Don’t tackle peaks and valleys alone, always take a friend, and in this case take two! Our trekking poles are made from ultralight, ultra-strong carbon fiber, with sturdy clasp locking mechanisms. They have a foam or cork handle for a comfortable sweat free grip.
In addition to being fantastic trekking poles, they can also be used to set up all of our Plex tents excluding the Altaplex.

Their light and pretty tough nice too have as a backup for a tarp setup
I purchased them for my wife and she was so happy since her old poles were so heavy. I of course never complained about her poles since she purchased them. Now, for the 1st time in my life, she is happy with something I purahsed her and not for myself.
Great Value for Cost
These hiking poles are great! Very light, easy to use, and they fold up smaller than some I’ve used so they don’t snag as many branches when attached to my pack. They are the best price for such lightweight poles I could find. Also I love the real cork handles! Their only downside is that the clips work their way loose a bit over time, so they can sometimes sink down when you weight them if you don’t periodically make sure the bolts that attach them are tight enough.
Great Poles, even Better Service
I used these on the Colorado Trail. They worked great. I've read that people never really adjust adjusting poles. Well, maybe I'm the only one. If I am ascending for a few hours, I'll shorten the poles by maybe 5cm. If I have along descent, I'll definitely lengthen them. Somewhere along the Colorado Trail I broke the tip off of one of my poles. I have no idea where or how. It was probably crossing some scree somewhere. Anyways, having adjustable poles made it not a problem. I just lengthen the pole that the tip broke off, and viola! I have equal length poles again! As a side note, zpacks customer support was excellent. They even sent me a new Pole once I got back.
These are the best trekking poles I have ever purchased! I love them so much this is my second pair! I put tons of miles on my first pair with out any issues. During my last trek to Tattoine is where my first pair gave out. The harsh desert environment was just too much for the carbon fiber. Once I got back stateside I had to order a new pair. Thanks for the fast service!!
