The cover/cap at the end of the pole was missing. Didn't realize while purchasing. It's very inconvenient to carry it.
23 September 2016Use since 2 to 8 weeksThat review has been deposited on this product versionDid good job, till it brokeLight weight, good grip Weak
It is what it says and functionally very useful. However after my first trek the lowest bar broke by getting slightly stuck on the path. I was very surprised because it survived worse terrain. I have no clue how can that happen but feeling really sad because I paid extra for this model over the basic one. My recommendation - please go for the basic model or take a bamboo stick and save your money

13 April 2016Use since 2 to 8 weeksI recommendThat review has been deposited on this product versionpurchase confirmedDid the job!Light weight pole, sturdy and practical. Rubber tips are an extra purchase
I used these poles when trekking 100 km in 5 days across Spain. They were great on the uneven paths, saw me through some muddy patches. Great for travelling because they fitting inside my pack for when it went into the hold on the aircraft. I would recommend buying the rubber tips because I find the tap tap noise on concrete or tarmac annoying and sometimes lost grip on these sections of road / trail.
25 June 2015Use since 1 week or lessI recommendThat review has been deposited on this product versionLightweight, straightforward, good colourEasy to adjust strap, fold away small, buy singly Quite short
Not for really tall people, as most of weight reduction seems to be in shortening the pole a bit. This is handy though as you can strap it to your bag without worrying about snagging the strap on branches. I didn't get anything to cover the metal tips, which is frustrating, it should come as standard, not as an accessory that can be out of stock.
23 June 2015I recommendThat review has been deposited on this product versionpurchase confirmedLight Pole in AustriaFunctional, compact, light and comfortable to hold nothing
I bought this as a spare pole which I could pack in my suitcase when travelling. I used it most recently while walking in the Austrian Alps and it was an extremely useful piece of equipment particularly on some of the more difficult walks.
19 February 2014I recommendThat review has been deposited on this product versionpurchase confirmedGood value for moneyLight weight and strong aluminium The plastic baskets are a bit flimsy
Having used this product on around 10 mountain walks in snow,bog, rock and river crossings and they have worked as well as well known more expensive walking poles and at 90% of the quality and 50% of the price i would recommend them
01 January 2014That review has been deposited on this product versionNon reliable locking mechanismrelatively light, possibillity to buy one piece on locking mechanism fails to lock randonly
These poles are not reliable for mountaineering. Even if they are quite light, the locking mechanism fails to lock when you need them. I will never use them for mountaineering or any winter activity. They fail when you need them the most.Brand's answer :
First thanks for your feedback on that product. I have forwarded your email to our product manager and according to her it is not normal that the locking system does not work properly. She thinks it is more a faulty thing with the one you bought.
She would like to have more details about how it happened.
I will let you answer to her: marieeve.meynet(at)quechua.com
Otherwise you can also return the product to your local store, exchange it or claim your money back.
