Black Diamond Trail Back Trekking Poles Reviews:


They handled a complete A.T. hike

I used these poles for a completed Southbound thru hike of the Appalachian Trail and also the Vermonts Long Trail. I use them on weekend hikes now. The poles are very sturdy and I love the locks which do not slip (if they ever did just tighten one little screw to fix that). The tips held out great on all types of terrain especially mountain rock faces heading up mountains. Ive only replaced my tips. After five years of heavy use the aluminum had started to corrode a little near the bottom pole section. I cleaned it and still use them every few weekends for dayhikes. These poles are not ultra-light but they are light. I didnt give the weight a second thought ever. They are light, sturdy and excellent for an affordable average costing pole.

My Third Legs

When one hikes as many miles as I do for work, the importance of solid, reliable trekking poles can not be overstated. THese are light and sturdy and easily adjustable on the fly, which is super handy for traversing slopes. I have an older version of these and they are still bomber. No troubles at all with the clamp adjusters. And they double (if only psychologically) as my protective weapons against any unsolicited wildlife encounters--fortunately, they've never needed to be used directly as such!

great poles!

Bought theses poles for my daughter as she has started regularly hiking with me. After a few trips of giving her one of my poles, it was time for her own. We recently climbed Giant Mtn in Adirondacks and these were invaluable to her. Greatly added stability especially descending the bare granite. The carbides really bite in well. I also also own Black Diamond poles. I can't imagine climbing high peaks without them.

Lightweight, & easy to adjust length.

Shortly after I recieved these treking poles I joined my hiking club for a 6.2 mile intermediate/advanced hike in our national park. Conditions were ice, snow, stream crossings and very hilly. I was so glad I bought and brought my trekking poles on the hike as they helped me downhill as well as up some faily steep trails. Thanks BD, I would recommend these for any tough terrain hiking.

Good trekking poles for the investment..

These poles have performed well right out of the package. I am 180 and the poles are a bit fear is if I fell on them they would break far so good. The grips are a bit small for my hand and the straps are thin. The locking mechanism is superb. They collapse to a small size when transporting, Good trekking pole for the investment .

Second Pair!

Had my first pair for 5 years, without a problem, then lost them in CO this fall! Wanted to replace them ASAP. They don't have a spring-loaded impact, so no 'boing-boing' with every placement. No grip issues with chafing, etc., able to adjust strap for gloves/mittens. Adjustable length is also a plus if needed for a tent/shelter pole, splinting, etc. Good quality, reasonable price.

Excellent Product 5 Stars

Is now a standard part of my pack. Light Weight Easy to Adjust Solid Locks Durable Comfortable on the hands Will use in all 4 seasons Great for trekking or getting in and out canyons. First trip out could feel reduced stress on legs and knees Great Service when I phoned in the order

Love these poles!

Just came in from a slow but steady walk of 1+ hours without a break. Have severe arthritis and problems in my back..could not walk very far any more. The poles take the pressure off my back and joints and I can keep going without pain. I have my freedom to wander outdoors again!

Just what I needed

I had never used trekking pole until a friend talked me into getting some. I purchased these poles for a weekend backpacking trip and I am soo glad that I did. They are very easy to adjust and provided me with great support. I will never backpack again without them. Worth every penny!!

Easy to use

My friend and I got a pair of these Trail Trekking 2013 Black Diamond poles and we love them! I've had some other poles before, but they were just wearing out. The reason why I bought these was because I will be able to replace the tips for super cheap.
