The number one question I’ve gotten after my Zpacks Carbon fiber trekking poles overview was about how similar they looked to the Cascade Mountain Tech carbon fiber poles. Are these two poles the same?! Did zpacks just “white label” the same poles? One of the big reasons for this comparison is that the CMT poles are easily one of the best budget trekking poles while the Zpacks poles are priced almost double the CMT poles.
In this video I talk about the similarities and differences between the Zpacks and CMT trekking poles. You decide for yourself whether or not they’re the same. I talk about the overall look, accessories, weight, overall length, diameter and fit and finish.
