Durability /Build Quality

The bulk of the reviews talk about the build strength of the trekking pole and this is what makes this pole the best trekking pole for long treks and hikes through tough terrain.

This pole works perfectly well, I have repeatedly used  on many hiking trips and it and it is still in good condition. I consider it the best trekking pole I have used so far.


This is my first  try in trekking, I ordered for two on offer, they arrived very fast, well protected, they look good construction the finishes are acceptable no luxury, I will use them next week I hope they last all the way, we’ll see if it was a good one or not. Right now I recommend a Buy since so far I am satisfied with the purchase.


Very good product as described, It is light and made with resistant materials that make this pole very durable.

I Bought  this trekking Pole to see if it’s suitable for Nordic walking or not and my conclusion is that it is Suitable because of its strength,  and lightweight Nature. It has a comfortable handle on the end of which, is a small compass so as not to get lost. I’ll order the second one for the kit.


This pole is quite small when collapsed and can be easily fit into your camping gear  when not in use. It is an excellent walking stick ideal for long walks. it has good construction and made from strong materials. I highly recommend it.

This Aluminum telescopic Trekking pole is very light, beautiful finish, and for a price more than suitable. I highly recommend this item.


Light weight and holds a good weight.

Negative Reviews

At a load and insufficient fixation can develop.


The locking mechanism can slip so it will close itself even under low loads if you don’t lock properly.


If you are over 6ft in height, be careful, these poles will probably be too short for you.


This pole does not last long track, for people who are frequent trekkers,  I would buy a professional trekking.
you have to buy 2, you will not have any use for just one.



This is what the people who have bought this trekking pole have to say. See for yourself if this product is what you are looking for in a trekking pole.

I would not buy a 6061 pole. 7075 is airplane grade and it’s both lighter and stronger than 6061 Steel.
