Nice to use but don't last that well with hard use.
Really comfortable design and would recomend for light to moderate use but did not stand up to hard use as well as Leki or Black Diamond poles. Broken bottom section, broken handle, loss of pin that holds wrist loop in sort of thing. Not being able to get replacement parts especially the hard tips as you can do with other brands significantly shortens useful life span.

Light and strong but don't last forever.
Light and strong but bits started falling off after 1-2 years. The end piece of one is still somewhere in the scree on gunsight pass if anyone wants spare parts...

Love these poles! I have taken those everywhere with me for the last two years. In Feb I broke one pole during my Milford walk and got it replaced. Thank you Macpac Petone team for an outstanding customer service!
