These poles have been a go-to for me on the trails in the Alps for several seasons, and haven't ever disappointed. The collapsability and size for transport and packing is great, while they still extend to the appropriate length (just make sure you check your measurements and get the right size poles for you. Treat them right, and they'll take care of you on all terrains.
Necessary for me
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have some not so good knee tendons and when it comes to hiking and I can't do anything above 6-8 miles without feeling like there is a arrow in my knee. . *cough* Anyway, these poles are ultra compact and have held up just fine so far to general up and down wear and tear. I can navigate just fine with a single pole which allows me to share, but having the second really comes in handy for all day trekking.
At first I thought the folding a Z-Pole and FlickLock Pro mechanisms were a bit gimicky, but they're just so uber quick to deploy and have been super stable, no complaints what-so-ever.
