Best pole on the marketReview by Trinity
These poles are so light that you can casually walk with both of them in one hand when you don't want to actually use them. I like this because I switch off and on between using my poles but don't like to always stow them. Grips are comfortable and I like that you can remove the straps (which I did). (Posted on 11/26/14)
Best and lightest poles on the marketReview by Darren
These poles are super light at only 4.1 oz per pole and they are super durable. I have used these on a 55 mile stretch from front royal to harpers ferry on the AT and on countless day hikes and a few multi day hikes. These will be my go to poles for my 2017 AT thru hike. I would reccomend these to everyone who hikes with poles. (Posted on 10/18/14)
Nothing comparableReview by Lynne
I just finished the 600-mile Israel National Trail, its last 220 miles being hard-core Negev desert. The pole performed very well, not only as a wonderful trekking aid but also as a monopod for my GoPro Hero 3 and finally, as a pole for "The One" tent.
It takes a while to get used to the "funky" nature of the locking mechanism. You might be turning the section for 15 seconds...30 seconds... ...60 seconds...wondering if it's ever going to "catch." Thankfully it always did.
The boot wore out after 500 miles. The metal tip poked through the rubber bottom. I really liked the boot, as it took most of the shock out of each pole plant. Plus it kept the tip from getting caught in cracks.
As the lightest pole on the market I never experienced fatigue holding it all day long. It was indispensable in negotiating terrain that made Maine's Mahoosuc Notch seem like child's play in comparison.

Love these poles!Review by Beatrice
My daughter and I walked the 500 mile Camino de Santiago in November 2013 and were so glad we had our LT4 trekking poles! They are so lightweight, we hardly noticed we were carrying them, and they were indispensable for up hills, downhills, navigating scree, and just general ease of hiking. After a really windy day, I rigged up a sort of strap, using hair doodles, only because the poles were so light, I feared one might blow right our of my hand. After that, we didn't run into anymore strong winds of course, so didn't need the "straps." The only downside was that one pole seemed a bit persnickety, in below freezing temperatures the mechanism wouldn't stay extended. Once the temperature reached 40 degrees or so, it would work fine. The pole did the same thing yesterday when we hiked Pilot Mountain in NC, in the snow. At the rangers station, I held it under the hand dryer in the restroom and, after blasting it with warm air, it worked fine. It was a bit inconvenient, but it was only one of the poles, so I don't know what's up with that. Otherwise, we absolutely love these poles. They are durable and, did I mention, really light. On the Camino, people were amazed at how light they were. They are priced well, it is nice that you can buy a pair or just one. I really, really appreciate the light more hand cramps! Buy the LT4's, you will be glad you did! (Posted on 1/17/14)
