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. Chris

    Bought two sets for my wife and I. After using a single pole for several years, decided to add on another after reading about the benefits. Used them on a weekend trip for the first time covering about 10 miles, and they held up great. The clasping mechanism is easy to use, like the availability of colors, and appreciated the follow up email that explained how to properly size.

  2. Vincent and Leigh

    Well made for a great price, straight forward adjustment of length and appear to be very sturdy. Haven't actually hiked with them yet, but we are leaving for a three week tour of the Grand Canyon and southern Utah where we will be trying them out on lots of day hikes. We expect that they will perform really well on the trail.

  3. William

    I've been really happy with these poles! Got them at the last minute for the Appalachian Trail because they were cheap and had good reviews. I've found that I can put my full weight on them on descents and that the handgrips are really comfortable. Plus they're light. Really that's what I want out of poles. The only two cons that I've found: initially I had trouble getting the locking mechanisms tight enough, and the carbide tips can't be replaced (though the rubber tips can). Overall a really nice set of poles!

    So first, these are great poles! They are very convenient, and telescope to a length you can fit into your airline luggage (I don't think you can take them in carry-on luggage, and haven't tried it to be on safe side). As The Wirecutter review points out, all the folding, blah blah fanciness doesn't matter in the woods because you don't fold them while you're on a trek. I bought these for each of my kids, and they like them. I had previously bought myself some Leki poles, the folding variety, but frankly, I bought them from the local outdoor store because I feel bad for always trying out stuff there and buying it on Amazon. So, I make sure I buy some stuff from them to make sure they're around when I need their advice. I would advise them to carry these poles. The Lekis were 140% more, and (1) they don't come with the rubber tips like the Montana, so they're really 160% more expensive), (2) they don't do anything that the Montems don't, and (3) well, the customer service at Montem is unbelievably wonderful. Son #2 was playing with his poles after removing them from the packaging, and I don't know exactly what happened, but he broke one of the telescoping mechanisms on one of the poles. I told him he'd better write to the company and see if that was covered under warranty. I figured this was a good way to teach the boys about being responsible, consequences, being the squeaky wheel, standing up for himself and asking for help. Amazingly, the CEO of the company wrote him back. Not. Even. Kidding! After reviewing the photos, he told the boy that while it appeared that this was not a legit warranty claim – I mean, let's face it, teenage boys aren't particularly delicate with new toys – they would go ahead and send him a replacement pole and hoped it would serve him well. How great is that?! So apparently this CEO-answering-your-e-mail is de rigeur for these guys, which is mighty handy. Got a question? Guy in charge answers it himself. He's even on the company chat help service. They do make a carbon fiber pole now, but I would say that aluminum is better for kids, since they will bend if someone starts, say, sword-fighting, rather than shattering as a carbon pole would. (I do not believe this was what caused the breakage, but it was probably something along those lines).

    I will never understand why anyone would pay $150 or more for a set of Trekking Poles. These poles cost less than $50 and contain the same materials as $150 poles, but in most cases are lighter than the insanely expensive ones. The grip on these poles is probably their best feature. They are some type of synthetic cork that feels great. Me and my wife took these for a short 6 miler the other day and they are crazy strong, they are light, and very well balanced. I have been walking without poles for a very long time and regret every step I ever took w/o the Montem poles.

  6. Barbara

    Although in the early stages of usage; the quality is noteworthy. They adjust easily and the grip is comfortable. Also, the manufacture supplies easy to understand instruction and seems very interested in making sure customers are happy with their product.

  7. David

    Great communication from the company and high quality poles. Buy with confidence.

  8. Alyssa P.

    I love these poles. I was unsure about using trekking poles, as I never have before, but they were recommended for a recent hiking and wine tour in Chile. I was so glad I had these. Much of the hiking we did was in rocky brush uphill and downhill, and having trekking poles gave me another contact point for balance, and also allowed me to push aside brush. These poles were fantastic. Very easy to collapse for storage and easy to extend for use. The measurements made it easy to remember what size I liked and made it easy to extend again the next morning. The poles performed as promised, and were extremely light. I gave them to a friend to hold for me, and she mentioned how much lighter they were than her poles. The cork handles were very comfortable to hold and didn't get sweaty (despite ample opportunity). The straps were very easy to adjust to make it easy to grip the handles. I lent them to another person on the trip and he easily adjusted them for his hike. The only caution I have is that there are knobs on the levers used to hold the sections when assembled, and it was important to tighten these knobs, not just to close the levers. That made them much more secure. I did find that they very slowly started to shorten if I put all of my weight on them, but I found I liked that. It seemed like it made them more flexible and less likely to break, and made the poles give a little bit if I were falling and suddenly placed my weight on them. Almost like shock absorbers. I would now highly recommend poles on any sort of uneven terrain, and these poles in particular.

    These are great! Lightweight and very comfortable to hold. They fit nicely on the side of my hiking bag. My only feedback is to check the tips when they arrive. We lost one on the first use and I just had to order more. No biggie considering we love these!!

  10. Angie

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
