Product Reviews

  1. Lauren

    These poles fold up to 16", and fit nicely in my backpack. I've put over 300 miles on them so far, and couldn't be happier

  2. AZ

    These are great light weight poles. They are well constructed and I have used them a few times without any issues. They easily fit in my luggage and backpack. I took them on a trip to California and I had zero issues at the airport. These are a great buy.

  3. Alex

    The first time I have used them was on my trip to Alaska. I took them up the mountain and I can honestly say that they probably stopped me from falling three to four times. This was such a good purchase and I would recommend them to anyone. I have now used them multiple times and they are still sturdy and the day I got them. The compactness of the trekking poles is also great and fit in my backpack.

  4. Bob

    I love these poles. They make my walking regiment much easier and give my upper body a nice workout. Plus they were on sale!!

  5. Micah

    I've used lots of poles before - including Leki and Black Diamond. These are by far the best poles I've ever used! They're 1/2 the price, and have lasted longer

  6. Tony J

    So Far So Good... If speed of shipment is anything to go by, I'd recommend the Montem Z-Poles. Ordered on Friday night, arrived on Monday - that's pretty fast. The poles look well constructed - good solid connections between the sections, the height adjustment works well - it remains to be soon how well the plastic clip-lock holds up but overall the build quality is high. I bought these because my Komperdell guide pole is too long to fit in the bag I'm taking on an upcoming trek. The length and the weight of the Z-Pole is 700g for the pair, and since I have an absolute weight limit of 15kg (which has to include 4-season sleeping bag, clothing, and DSLR) I'm prepared to sacrifice some of the guide pole features (like anti-shock) for length and weight. The only downside I can see is that the carbide tips are not replaceable - I don't expect to wear them out anytime soon if prior experience is anything to go by, but that feature would push the review to 5 stars. That said, I knew going in that the tips couldn't be replaced, so maybe it's not fair to ding the poles on that account.

  7. Joey

    They lasted me throughout my travels. I went to Africa, China, Vietnam, and Thailand. They've gotten over 1,000 miles and they're still going strong!

  8. dalenorton

    Great poles, I have hiked over a hundred miles with them no problems.

  9. Ashley K.

    I purchased these folding poles to go hiking with my 30 pound backpack. These trekking poles are durable and very light. I used them this past weekend again with a 20 pound backpack and they had no issue offering stabilization. I experienced no lower back pain or soreness. I really like how they fold up and fit in my bag.

  10. CDORI

    I just purchased these poles over the weekend, upgrading my old aluminum poles for the carbon poles. I took them on a hike on the Iron Mountain Trail here in San Diego. I was amazed at what a difference these poles had on my body. There were lots of ups and downs. But afterward, my back and knees did not bother me!! Usually, after walking a half mile, my back starts acting up. And I ended up doing 5 miles that day. I loved the soft grips too. It also absorbed the sweat as it was very humid out when I was hiking. My only "complaint" have I had some initial difficulty getting the baskets to stay on. Thought I had it, but during the hike one of them came off. But given how my back did not bother me during the hike - I may need to take these poles with me on easy going walks!

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
