They are great; buying a second pair
Bought these this summer after a lot of research; now buying a second pair for my spouse. We both love them. I use them for hiking in rocky Vermont; he likes them for stability while walking. We love the fact that they can fold tidily into either my hiking daypack or his rolling suitcase for travel. Highly recommended.

Great Poles with Only Two Height Settings
The trekking poles were exactly what they should be, but they only have two height adjustments. This matters when you are choosing between the three sizes. I actually chose the mid-size without measuring carefully and they were a little too high for me. Luckily my son-in-law used them and let me use his multi-level poles. So just order carefully. These are excellent poles that fold up very small for easy packing.

New z poles
I had some of the original aluminum z-poles. I took a fall and bent one of them. I bought a new set. The new set is much better than my old ones. The aluminum is heavier gage and appears much stouter. The new sliding ring locking mechanism is also easier to operate especially with gloves. It is considerably stronger than the old push button system.

Durable and Lightweight
Bought these for my first trail half marathon, and they saved my bacon on the long rocky descents! I wish the length could have some adjust-ability, but they saved my 200+ lb frame from falling, so seem really durable and break down and strap to my vest nicely when not in use.

Great for my 50k!
I bought these to use for my first 50k race. The course had 5500 feet of elevation gain, and I'm definitely glad I had them. I used them both hiking and running during the course. They fold down pretty easily. I can fold/unfold them while running. The Left and Right labels can be a little hard to see, so I put a different color of tape just below each handle. I will probably get the Distance Z carbon poles at some point, but for my first ultra I think the durability and cost of the aluminum were worth more than the weight saved in the carbon poles.

Good overall
Trekking the Camino de Santiago. Poles are great on downhills but sometimes the lower section separated from the pole which isn't great. Overall I'm happy.

long trail/ultra runs
I've used these poles on a VT Long Trail thru hike, long runs, and on a couple ultra races. They're sturdy, light, and compact.

I've definitely given them a beating, but they're holding up well. I appreciate the grip allowing for several holding points, which gives options for how tall the pole seems even though they have a fixed length.

I bought these as I had knee replacement surgery about a year ago and they preformed perfectly as we hiked Glacier National Park, Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. Only problem was I had them in my backpack as I went thru TSA in Jackson Hole and they would not let me take them thru. Unfortunately we had already checked our luggage.... I gave them to a local you man who was leaving the airport.....already bought a new set of poles...
