I'm 5'8" and female. WOWEEE did these make a difference! I went to Kolob Canyon (Zion NP) for my first trip with the poles and I was AMAZED at how helpful they are. While walking if you used the poles nordic-style they help speed you up, for stream crossings they were invaluable and they made me feel like a loping antelope going uphill!. I kept telling my bf that I felt like a gazelle!
I have no complaints about the poles -- they work great! I only wish I'd bought them sooner!
I wasn't sure I would like the anti-shock feature of these poles but thought I would give them a try. I was pleased to find the slight retraction they offer on hard rocky surfaces is a plus.
I usually use poles only on steeper trails, retracting them to their shortest length and strapping them to my backpack on easy portions of the trail; these Leki's are perfect for such use, the length adjustment is quick/easy and stays locked in place. The poles are strong and light weight. The grips & hand straps are comfortable too!
This was my first purchase of a Leki product; it won't be my last.
The poles are sturdy, lightweight, and durable and have held up to the beating I've put them through. They adjust quickly and easily and the locking mechanism is reliable. Adjusting them without stopping also proved easy to do.
I'm not sure what benefits there are to the more expensive poles but I'm very happy with these.
These poles are solidly built (I looked at cheaper ones at Wal-Mart and outdoor stores, but these are by far the "Rolls Royce" of trekking poles. One thing that I worried about was if they would loosen up and collapse. I was putting a lot of weight on them on the decent but they performed flawlessly and never even appeared to loosen up.
Overall - highly recommended.
These Czech Republic poles I took delivery of are 3rd rate in materials and workmanship. I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to adjust the very uncomfortable straps.
Included was an instruction card or fold out fanning card info system with useless instructions in every language including some from another solar system I think? Clearly great expense and engineering was poured into the useless instruction card and the poles were make as an afterthought.
The rubber handles are uncomfortable. The straps will not adjust and are of such cheap scratchy material that I'm sure would rub the skin right off your wrist.
I ordered a pair of Super Makalu poles that should arrive today. I'm hoping they are better than these junky poles that I will return.
I may have to go to Black Diamond or pay double for a decent pair of trekking poles?
