Macpac P3 Monopod Trekking Pole
Why we made this
The P3 Monopod is a aluminum trekking pole with Lever Lock system for simple and quick adjustments and an extended EVA grip with wrist strap.
Walking poles reduce the pressure on your joints and muscles (especially when carrying a pack), they provide you with additional stability in difficult terrain and by doing so they reduce the risk of injuries. The Monopod Trekking pole is made from 6061 Aluminium and features a quick lever locking system, an EVA grip that is super comfortable in all conditions and weighs 330 g per pole.

3.0 / 5.0
Heavy but ok
Real weight of 330g is a bit more than the claimed 295g, you do notice the extra weight over the carbon poles. Seems decent enough apart from that, the camera thread on top is a useful touch. Bit much play in the joints even when tightened up, guess I'll see how long it lasts.
