they don't collapse very far and can be kind of a pain to adjust (plus they don't stay all the way collapsed, they slide around a few inches), but for how cheap they are I shouldn't be surprised. Wish they weren't listed as splitboarding poles, they're just too long to want to deal with if you have to put them away when you ride down. Probably fine for snowshoeing, but for backcountry snowboarding I'd say spend the extra money for something that gets significantly smaller
User-Friendly Trekking Poles
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
I love the stability that the poles gave me while trying out my new snowshoes. Very easy to adjust (as opposed to another pair that we used for hiking), stable and a great product.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I have hiked with these a couple of times and they seem like they will last a while. If they do end up breaking or wearing out I will likely go with a Black Diamond or Leki but I think these will do good for at least a season or two.
