Gossamer Gear does not, however, warranty products against materials or fabric failure due to durability issues.

Trash; costly trash. Used them for a few flat hikes in Wisconsin and they worked fine but once I tested them on my first winter hike with some elevation at Devil's Lake they cracked like dry kindling without my full weight on them (or getting stuck), as the warranty suggests will break them.

Will never buy GG again; nor make use of their generous 15% off to buy new lower tips. (Posted on 3/3/16)
The best superlight poles for 3 seasonsReview by TDF99

We take them on every backpack as tarp poles. In SW deserts and mountains, we use them about 60% of the time we're off trail; 30% of the time on trails. Haven't used the straps at all.
Quite strong as long as you don't bend them or catch them in a crack. SUL weight is a major plus, because you can carry them in one hand like a swagger stick.
Not for snowshoeing.

Sleek and SturdyReview by Fall

I have resisted carrying poles for years, hating their added weight and clunkiness, but with the purchase of a lightweight tent that uses pole support (and let's face it, aging knees) I finally purchased a pair of LT4's and am truly converted! They are beautifully minimalist and much, much sturdier than I imagined such a lightweight pair of poles to be. The cork grips are really comfortable and I appreciate the option to purchase without wrist straps. Though the price was initially hard to swallow, I'm a true believer in investing upfront for not only what will last, but in beautifully designed items that you appreciate for form and function every time you pick up.

Grade A PolesReview by richcana

First set of poles are still going strong. They survived thru hikes WCT + GDT, 400 mile section hike of GDT, countless day outings and many weekend overnights. Replaced one tip after 4 years of summer use. The design shape and material make these the most comfortable handles ever used. (Posted on 11/6/15)

I have these about as long as I've had my Mariposa pack and they have held up great to trekking and for porch mode on my hammock. I just wish that i had ordered these sooner than i did. (Posted on 11/5/15)

I bought the non-adjustable poles for my hike of the Colorado Trail and loved them. I prefer no straps and no moving parts because I don't want things to break. These poles are so light and easy to use. I can't imagine owning any others. A superior product that is well worth the money. (Posted on 9/14/15)
Awesome UL polesReview by Cliff

If your looking for ultra light poles & understand that there is a slight trade off between being ultra light & durability then these poles are great! Ive got about 500 miles on them so far & the only issues I've had is: the locking mechanism can be finicky, the straps aren't the most comfortable, & the carbide tips have worn out. The near weightlessness of these poles outweighs any of these issues though. Spider webs all over the trail & you want to use your pole to break the trail? No problem, you can hold these out in front of you all day without your arms getting too tired. Eating with one hand while you walk? No problem to carry both poles in one hand. Trail over grown & not conducive to using poles? No problem, carry one in one hand & keep the other extended in front of you to push back the undergrowth & you wont even notice your carrying a pole. Oh, & they're pretty sweet for walking big miles also. If miles & weight are your number one priorities then you've found your poles. If your a little heavy handed, more comfort minded, or going somewhere where you cant afford to have your poles fail then you might need to keep looking. Happy trails! (Posted on 7/25/15)
Best aroundReview by CSN

After much hand wringing over what to get for my first set of trekking poles, and horror at the weight of most other poles on the market, I am delighted to have made the right choice. Unbelievably light, yet strong enough to take my 185lbs if they're not abused. Their fully compressed length is rather long but that's the price of a lighter 2-section pole. They still tuck alongside my pack well enough, not that they spend much time packed! Did I mention they're light? Carrying both in one hand still felt like nothing, and they swing with minimal feeling of inertia. The grips are soft and comfortable with handy little loops off the bottom for clipping to your pack with a mini S-biner, etc.

The locking mechanism can have some sticky moments; cleanliness is key and you might want to get a rifle cleaning rod to get up in the top section on a regular basis with a scrap of rag. Otherwise it has not failed me or ever come loose.

My only wish is for 1/4-20 thumbscrew or wingnut-head on the strap attachment screw so I can pop the straps off and my camera on without needing a screwdriver (or scratching everything up using my knife as one.) The GG camera mount is unpallatable at $15 for an inch of threaded rod!

If you care about light weight (and I guarantee your shoulders and elbows do!) and still want something that collapses for storage, you've come to the right place! (Posted on 6/1/15)
Best Poles Ever & Surprising StrongReview by Lorenzo

Phenomenal and almost twice as light as ultralight alternatives like "Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork" (which I also own). Honestly, don't hesitate if you are thinking about buying these. I have abused them now for almost 2 years in all 4 seasons and they have been near perfect. The only minor issue as has been mentioned before is that sometimes the lock mechanism seems to get stuck due to changes in temperature (like on cold mornings). Buy the LT4s and not the LT4Ss. I bought the latter and i found the straps both uncomfortable and unnecessary. (Posted on 5/15/15)
Great Poles with Minor FlawsReview by Michael

I bought the LT4S trekking poles for my hike on the Camino de Santiago from Switzerland to Fisterra/MuxĂ­a in Spain (around 1,440 miles). I love them for their lightweight and general strength and will use the again. The locking mechanism works great and holds up well, but you need to know a few tricks: when the poles have been closed for a longer time, you won't be able to shift them without fully opening them and taking the two parts completely apart. Then, you need to loosen the completely opened screw a bit and put the two parts together again, otherwise, they won't lock again. When you know this, you will realize that they work very reliably. This experience just doesn't add to a very professional impression of the poles. The biggest flaw, however, is that the front part with the pole tip is way too soft. After the first 300 miles they started to bend slightly and stayed bent for the rest of the trip (and still are bent, now that I'm back to Switzerland again; I guess they will stay bent for the rest of their life). I think that this shouldn't happen with such expensive gear. So five stars to the lightweight and general quality, but there has some work to be done on the points mentioned here, especially when considering the high price they cost (these are some of the most expensive trekking poles on the market). NOTE FROM GOSSAMER GEAR : 1) The tips can be replaced by sending the poles to our shop ( which may not be cost effective to send from Europe) 2) It is recommended the poles be pulled apart each night and wiped down with a rag or towel to help with adjustment.
