Some initial impressions of my new hiking poles. These weigh 13 oz in the 120 cm fixed length. UPDATE: Put 100km on these poles this weekend (much of it off trail) and the proved very durable. Love the compactness when stowed (in a packraft on the water or in a pack while climbing. The reason the straps are so long is, you’re supposed to but your hand in from the bottom of the loop with the strap in the “v” of your hand. Works much better this way.
