I bought these to use with my z poles while splitboarding. I changed out the original tips with flex tips (which are awesome and got these baskets to go along with them. If you are going for a hike or snowshoeing I recomend these to you. If you are splitboarding or ski touring go with the other snowbaskets BD offers. The edge of these baskets are not slim enough to fit under heel risers, and they don’t hold up under deep snow. One great feature is that the round cut outs fit around your pole well to keep them neat when lashed to your pack on the way down.
