Rated 4 out of 5 by Rockon from As expected They always come to you for these reviews 2 or 3 weeks after you buy the thing. Really not enough time to give a proper review, but they are as expected. I have used them twice CC/Backcountry skiing on flat to very moderately rolling terrain and they seem reasonably light and strong. The flicklock is holding up as expected, but who can really say after 2 uses. I have had no problems with the baskets coming loose/off.....follow BD's directions for mounting. The wrist straps seem comfortable with the reasonable ability to adjust the loop size with gloves on. I am giving them four stars because I have not owned/used them long enough to give five. A couple of basically non-important things are the pole colors. I am not crazy about the gray/black.....white/black would have been a better choice The "instruction manual" that comes with them is a bit absurd, a primer in hieroglyphics would be helpful. The "manual" is about the size of a poster once you unfold it and hurts your eyes to look at it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by skibunny from Great touring/ hiking poles The handles and straps feel great without gloves, but on cold days the grip will freeze up if the material comes in contact with snow but on those days you're wearing gloves so it doesn't make much of a difference since my gloves grip the ice just fine. I had no issues with the fliplocks while skiing, but the lock mechanism sometimes doesn't hold well when I push on my pole to release my tech bindings after they iced up from snow while skiing. Overall, they're great poles!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marshall from Works great! I’ve used these a couple times this winter and they’ve worked great! Decently stiff, the adjustment feature is simple, reliable, and stays out of the way. A nice packable, adjustable, lightweight, and versatile ski pole for just about anything you need them for. I like how easily the baskets are exchanged, seems that they’ll work fine as trekking poles come summer!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Freeheeler from Love the poles, but the baskets.... I love these poles. The adjustable straps are awesome; however I lost both baskets on the first day. I screwed them on super tight, but after just half a day they were both gone:(
