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.

Received poles and am happy with design and appearance. However, poles are listed as being made with aircraft grade aluminum alloy. After receiving them, the attached label states they are made with a different (lower grade) alloy. As evidence of Amazon's top-notch customer orientation, when I contacted them about this they promptly credited me the difference in price between what I had paid and the lower priced model. I'm hoping that after using them for a while, the grade of alloy won't be an issue.

I've had my carbon lites for about 7 years. I bought them for a hike in the Grand Canyon and have used them consistently for hiking, backpacking,snow shoeing ever since. They perform flawlessly every time and I'd buy them again. Also, when I felt the need to replace the hand straps or lost one of the baskets customer service was absolutely great. Good folks there at Mountainsmith.

We bought these for guests who visit us, but I actually use them instead of my Leki Titaniums much of they time. They are lightweight, sturdy and the handles are excellent.
