Product Review by Sarah: (meet our team)
I’ve been using these poles for several months now and they work well, especially for desert and beach areas. I have even taken them with me into the water, so that I could hold onto my poles while my friends swam in a lake. The height is adjustable, but they don’t fold, so they aren’t easy to pack away in a suitcase.
I have found that they are very sturdy. They have remained intact through several long walks, hikes, and while rushing through airports and using them as my mobility device. They can be a bit slippery on hard surfaces, and they are most helpful on carpeted floors or on uneven terrain with sand, soil, grass, snow, or tree roots. The ends are pointed, so they can dig into the ground, and I have not been able to detach the pointed ends independently.
Before I got these poles, I used a pair of Montem Trekking Poles, which came with separate points that you could attach to the bottom, though I didn’t use them often. They were not quite as durable. Out of four separate Montem poles, three of them broke, with hard falls or heavy use. I have one Montem pole remaining, and I still use it often for long walks on largely flat surfaces, like sidewalks, pavement, or airport hallways. The Montem poles are adjustable, they fold and can fit inside of a suitcase, and the bottoms are flat.
For comparison, I’ve taken pictures of my two black diamond trekking poles, and one Montem trekking pole side by side.
