TREKKING POLES – Buying ADVICE!

Trekking Poles can be confusing to shop for. I’ve personally purchased a few pair not knowing a single thing about why I was buying them. For how useful and expensive they can be, there isn’t a whole lot of explanation out there talking about the different kinds, how they work, and what to buy.

In this video, I cover 3 different types of Leki Trekking poles and give you my buying advice.

If I were you, I’d pick up the following

If you want a solid trekking pole on a budget look into the cascade mountain tech carbon corks(or aluminum is great if your budget is particularly tight). They are popular among the backpacking community for their price and performance. The nat geo adventurer of the year, andrew skurka, has a detailed review on them. I had a pair hold up great on a 12 day dall sheep hunt in alaska and they really improved my ability to hike, sidehill, downclimb, and especially pack out the sheep. If you are a hunter I recommend buying extra rubber tips to keep the noise down on rocks. If you are a thru-hiker I would consider a longer lasting pole, but the cascade mountain tech poles are still cheaper if you consider replacing tips over time and shimming latches.
