Distance FLZ Trekking Poles is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these poles! I absolutely love these trekking poles! I have used other poles in the past, after a long day they would wear on me. These I hardly notice, they are feather light and comfortable. They are also pretty sturdy; I've taken a few bad spells on ice, where if they were weak could have bent them. You simply cannot beat how small these poles are; they easily fit into my hydration pack.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for off-road use I got these as a birthday gift and have used them about 10 times. They are good as long as I stay on the road, but when walking in muddy terain they get stuck in the mud and get pulled apart, or through fields with tall grass they get tangeled in the grass and I end up with 3 pieces of pole on a string. It is easy to put them together again, but when it happens every 5th step walking through a field it gets frustrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and compact We love these trekking poles! They easily fit in our day pack and hardly even notice they’re there. I would highly recommend the FLZ, as opposed to the non adjustable z poles. The additional 7” proves helpful to get that perfect fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent design, good performance. I purchased these to substitute for crutches/cane due to problems with balance. I have used them > 8 occasions and initially found a plastic insert which was supposed to stay inside the pole would pull out if I folded the poles starting from Lowest joint (closest to the basket), but this has not recurred since I have started folding them starting with the Upper joint, closest to the handle; additionally I did use paraffin wax on the bottom joint of the right pole as it was fitting very tight and hard to disassemble. Overall I am very happy with the poles especially given they're light weight, and compact size when folded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for travel Another high quality from BD. I was leaving on my trip a day early and BD rushed my order thru. It is amazing how solid the poles are when you look to see how small the fold up

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, easy to use! Just took these poles out for four days of backpacking in the high Sierras. They were lightweight, durable, and easy to use. The poles held up quite well even through a lot of off trail cross country travel over harsh terrain. The rubber tips did wear down somewhat quickly, but this wasn't surprising after use over mostly bouldered terrain. Overall, the poles are a great product, and I would definitely recommend them.
