Customer Reviews

Cork handles and thin wrist wraps are comfortable.
Victor A. Bary
At first I was skeptical about these poles, as they cost me less than half of what most good quality trekking poles do.
Michael A. Ridge
They are easy to adjust, rock solid, sturdy, light weight, handsome poles.

I know there are lots of folks out there who do a lot of hiking and won't be satisfied with anything less than a pair of LEKIs. But I wanted a couple of anti-shock poles which could be used together or just one at a time (and in a way, the 2nd one offers a back-up redundancy if one tends to hike with a single pole most of the time), and I didn't want a pair of ultra-cheaps which would fall apart after a few uses, nor did I want to pay through the nose for poles that, while higher quality, could still fail.

Anyway, I had tried a cheap under-$20 pole, the Hikker, and it was fine. But my partner and I needed another pole, so I thought to take a small step up and get these Mountainsmith Carbonlite Pros as a pair. Each one is clearly sturdier than the Hikker, and I prefer the Mountainsmith's softer sling-like straps. Good cork handles, pretty easy to adjust the overall height. May seem dumb to say this, but the little measuring hash-marks painted on the shaft are kind of handy for nature photography, because I can drop the pole next to the plant or rock I want to shoot and have an instant visual scale right there.

I've been using the Mountainsmith a couple times a week on rocky, steep terrain in wilderness areas near our house, with no problem at all. Mostly I leave the basket off and the tungsten tip exposed. The other day, I was out hiking and up on a ridge, maybe a mile from my vehicle when it became clear some serious thunderstorms were rolling in. I had to move fast, mostly downhill -- and that single pole saved me from at least a dozen spills on the way down.

So my recommendation is if you've never used a hiking pole before and aren't sure you'll like them, go cheaper.

At first I was skeptical about these poles, as they cost me less than half of what most good quality trekking poles do. I wanted a decent pair of shock-absorbing poles, but really couldn't see spending around $100 or more for something I use only occasionally - though I do understand & appreciate the concept of 'you get what you pay for'. These poles have not let me down, have not ever collapsed on me, and have so far proven every bit as worthy as those LEKI's I was pondering, if only not as light weight - though these are by no means heavy. I did also very much like the idea of the pressure-style locks of Diamond Back poles, but these traditional screw locks are easy enough to work with. Multiple tip options, comfortable cork handles and wrist straps. I certainly recommend these as a great economical alternative to the 'big boys'(or girls), or as a great entry-level set of poles until you decide to splurge.

The poles worked great and I had no problems with comfort or the sections slipping. I hear that Mountain Hardware has excellent customer service if you do get a bad pair.

The cork handles are durable and comfortable and the anti-shock system works but I could certainly live without them and save the weight. If you are looking to save money or are buying your first pair this is the way to go to get nice features for a low price. That being said there is a reason other poles cost $100 more than these, but you get what you pay for plus a little extra with these.

One thing I like best about backpacking with poles is it keeps your posture upright rather than hunched over with the weight of your pack. Typically I have bad back pain when backpacking however using trekking poles eliminated this so I am sold for life. I only bought the poles to hold up my tarp but they have lots of uses, from protecting you from rolling your ankle to testing the depth of water or if a muddy spot is too soft to cross.

I absolutely couldn't made it if not for the trekking poles I bought through Amazon. These Carbonlite Pro Trekking Poles by Mountainsmith are fantastic and I highly recommend them! They are well made, easy to operate and adjust. The hand grips with strap and the shock absorbers are great features. The held up to the mountains of Nepal. You cannot go wrong with these poles. They are well worth the money. Shipping and package were timely and excellent.

I have owned a pair of these poles for nearly three years and have accompanied on numerous miles of backpacking including Georgia sections of the Appalachian Trail, sections of the Pinhoti Trial, Savage Gulf and now a 90+ mile trek at Philmont Scout Ranch. Over the years they have held up well but do require some adjustments to the locking mechanisms that I was able to do myself. For the price they have more than met my expectations. I really like the cork grips as I sweat a lot and they help maintain grip.

Now for the customer service: About a year a go one of the baskets ripped. I contacted Mountainsmith to see if I could buy some baskets. Without hesitation they sent me a pair of new baskets for free. This was nice. Next, on my trek to Philmont one of my pole's lower section snapped about 75 miles into the 90+ mile journey. Just to be clear I am very rough on poles and these had been through a lot. I am not a small person. I thought for sure I was going to need to buy new poles when I got home. On the off chance they sold pole sections separately I contacted Mountainsmith to see if I could buy a replacement section. Again, without hesitation, I was sent the middle and bottom section replacements at no charge. I would have gladly paid but was never asked to do so. Truly outstanding. I own other things from Mountainsmith and have always been very satisfied.
