Frequently Asked Questions

Montem specializes in high quality gear at an affordable price. With thousands of 5-star reviews, dozens of #1 rankings, and numerous awards, the verdict is in. Montem is better than the competition at 1/2 the price.

Montem poles have been unanimously ranked above primary trekking pole companies such as Black Diamond and Leki. How, you ask? No middle men, no mark ups, no hidden fees. We take pride in devoting our time, effort, and passion to designing the highest quality gear we can while doing everything in our power to keep the price down.

We do this by limiting marketing expenses, minimizing website costs. We DO NOT cut costs on the actual product, which is exactly why we've been called the premier pole on the market.

The design, functionality, and quality is stellar. Simply put, we keep our prices low by not wasting money on what "the other guys" do.

It's super easy! Simply adjust your arms so that they’re at a 90 degree angle while using your Montem Trekking Poles. When adjusting the height of the poles, make sure the number on the top segment of the pole is the same as the one on the bottom.

Flip open the clasp, then proceed to make 1/4 turn adjustments to the screw until you get the desired tension. The bolt should be tight enough that when you close the clasp the pole supports your weight without sliding.

Yes! To adjust the length of the strap pull the tension block out. Once the tension block is removed, you may pull the loose end to tighten the strap, or pull the upper end to loosen the strap.

Product Reviews

  1. Amrose

    You can buy more expensive poles, but you can't buy better poles. Recently went on a 30 mile hiking/camping trip to Yosemite with my daughter and sister. We all three had Montem trekking poles, and we all three were saved many, many times from falls, injuries, and mishaps by these poles. Not to mention the added ease of climbing (up and down) that these poles provide. Never did they slip or fail. They lock in to the height you set and the handles are extremely comfortable. Mine did vibrate more than the others, but that may be due more to my technique than the poles. Great purchase.

  2. Autom

    For years I'd hiked without poles, thinking that to get a set of poles I'd be looking at a price floor of $100, and I didn't think that was reasonable for what was a set of sticks. So when I'd seen these on the Wirecutter review site as a top rated set, at half the price I was expecting, I nabbed a pair each for my partner and I. Lightweight for the cost, the height adjustment is super easy (and secure -- haven't had them slip yet), comfortable cork grips and soft straps. And they really make a hike a lot less taxing on the knees and hips.

  3. Hikerchick

    I bent my poles in a fall a few weeks ago and ordered these as a replacement. They are half the cost of my other poles but every bit as sturdy, functional, and are super comfortable in my hands. I even tried both grips and both are comfortable. I'd definitely recommend to anyone looking for affordable hiking poles.

  4. Jay

    These are the only trekking poles I have ever used so I can't compare them to the more expensive competition out there. After I solved an initial issue with them gradually collapsing ( just had to keep tightening the adjustment) I thought they performed very well and I had no further issues. I can't imagine what a more expensive pole could have done better. The hand grip was good, even with my profuse sweating, and the tips held up very well over a 2 day 19 mile hike. The terrain ranged from hard rock to hard packed clay, to sandy gravel. The first day was all down hill, and the second day was all up hill. (Grand Canyon hike to the river and back) I came to understand the value of having poles in general as they really help take some of the shock off of your knees and hips. I had no malfunctions with these over the trip and feel sure I will get several more trips out of them. The only reason I didn't give them a 5 star is because I really have nothing to compare them to. For a first time hiker whose not sure if they will pursue a hiking/ backpacking pass time I think these would be an excellent purchase.

  5. Max

    First time user of poles. Used these to hike mount Baldy/San Antonio. They were great for the gravel, rocks, sand and dirt. Adjust to the smallest of 2 feet and longest would probably work for someone 6' tall. Glad I got them.

  6. Amanda

    Got these for my husband and he tried them out tonight and loved them! Very pleased with the quality!

  7. Steven

    Love them! Easy to use and adjust, comfortable handles, and feel very sturdy. I love that I'm supporting a small company, but I hope - especially with manufacturing being in china - that you develop some fair labor policies and get third party certifications to ensure adequate social justice and environmental stewardship.

  8. Brandi

    These are truly great trekking poles. They're easy to adjust and kept the same length over several days of heavy use without needing much readjustment. During a 3 day backpacking trip in Yosemite I used them on mud, granite, gravel, and snow (with the appropriate baskets). They caught me during many falls on melting snow. They even prevented me from falling into icy, fast moving water during difficult stream crossings over logs and rocks. By the end of my trip, these were my most valuable piece of gear and the purchase I was most grateful for having made.

  9. Mike

    I'm new to trekking poles and have been researching them for a few months. I bought these and a competitor set (for my kids) at the same time. I really wish I had gone ahead and got a set of these for all of us. Right out of the box I could tell that the look and feel of the Montem poles were a much higher quality! I have been on 1 hike so far with these poles and have another planned for this weekend. The Montem poles are strong and light, and the cork grips are very comfortable. Also, I'm a big guy and am able to put my weight in them without any issues. Definitely recommend!

Finally, an affordable carbon pole. Montem answers the most common gripe-price-with this sub-$80 offering that performs like it costs twice as much.

After about 40 hours of testing on trails, streets, beaches, and many places in between—including extensive handling and testing in a physical-therapy office, among therapists, nurses, patients, and doctors in an orthopedic group—we’ve determined that the Montem Ultra Strong Trekking Poles are the best for nearly everyone. They’re simple to set up and use, comfortable, and ready to take a beating. Also, they’re a bargain.

Montem nailed important details like choke-up extensions on the grips, in-field adjustments for the locking mechanism, and easily adjustable straps
