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. Davon

    I was skeptical about the locking fasteners on these trekking poles and concerned over the consequences if they buckled under the strain. I took a chance. Now over a year later, and many trips, they still perform as they did when brand new. They did well in the snow as well.

  2. Sheila

    The grips are comfortable and do a good job of not sliding around when wet. The only con is a personal preference, and that is I wish the tops of the grips were more rounded for hand-over-grip holding.

  3. Lizabeth

    I've used these on three outings so far, and I like them. They are very lightweight, compact and durable. The clips hold the pole in position and are adjustable for tension.

  4. Destinee

    Fantastic product! Lightweight.The padded strap and contoured foam handle were super comfortable and performed beautifully through hours and hours of walking and hiking. Exceptional.

  5. DragonFlyEye

    I bought these for our Grand Canyon trip, due to recent problems with my knees, and they didn't disappoint. I'm glad I had them, given the uneven terrain, even on the developed trails. The adjustable strap fit around my wrist, which prevented one of them going into the Canyon at one point! Make sure to open the clamp locks and tighten the screws before you clamp them together and use them. They adjust for length very easily. I sometimes adjusted them to be shorter for ascents, and longer for descents. (Found a good video online that discussed this.) I'm going to use them (one or both) for some local (fairly undeveloped) trails this summer, even with the on-leash dog. One comment on packing into a suitcase - they wouldn't fit in my TSA-compliant carryon suitcase, even crossways, even completely collapsed telescopically. BUT, Joseph at the company pointed out that the three pieces pull apart (duh!), and they fit perfectly. They were at least an inch shorter that way. Your suitcase might be compliant, but be slightly longer, so this may not be an issue. In any case, they were really easy to put back together.

  6. Richard Kelly

    Strong, adjustable poles with comfortable grips and choice of tips all for a good price!

  7. Greg S.

    Very happy with the quality of the hiking poles. Just arrived and have not tested on the trails yet, but have used around the neighborhood. Handles are very comfortable, and the price was great.

  8. John

    Very nice trekking poles! Simple to extend and then to retract them. Should easily fit in a full size suitcase for traveling. Can't wait to give them a real workout on my upcoming trip to the Pacific Northwest.

  9. Fiedler

    These lightweight/compact poles live in my daypack. I'm visually impaired and had lost much of my peripheral vision. These poles have given me freedom to hike on any type of trails, whereas as before getting these I was only hiking easy trails

  10. Nicolai

    The poles helped me up and down the many mountains. I think they are quite sturdy, as I put a lot of weight on them when I'm coming down the steep rocky trails. I use the 115 cm, I'm 5' 3" weight 145

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 Trekking Poles are a great deal for the value they provide. From committed outdoor enthusiasts to local strollers, these poles will offer a great work out, as well as a sturdy base you can rely on. For the price, it doesn’t get much better than this.

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