Alpine FLZ Trekking Poles is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great poles! Esp for airplane travel!!! These poles were awesome! Love how they break down to fit nice in my bag for checking luggage on airplane. Just got back from 10 days at Glacier National Park. Hiked 61 miles with these poles. Challenging hikes like Sperry Chalet to snow hikes which involved crampons, to easier hikes like Iceberg Lake. Poles held up well!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable enough, collapses small Good pole standing up to the beating I put into it and collapses super small. Not as strong as non-z poles, but good enough. Like the adjustability + z-pole style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 97% of everything I need from poles I love BD gear and apparel. I own and use a lot of it, for backpacking, camping, climbing, alpine/snow/glacier travel, and all the vertical training to support these outings. These BD Alpine FLZ poles deliver all the features I've come to require: they stow well, they are adjustable, the are strong and reliable. They include snow baskets, cork handles, good wrist straps and generous carbide tips for sticking into rock. I will only ever use z-fold poles, as the pack small inside my pack and deploy really fast. I require adjustable poles for two reasons; max power going up (shorter) and more reach/balance on the descent (longer). Additionally, couple of my lighter shelters use poles in lieu of tent poles, so my trek poles need to adapt. The handles, materials and straps on the Alpine FLZ are the best of all options on the market, and this is key to me as the interface to my poles. Cork is the best when I am not wearing gloves. These grips extend down a hand-width when I need to shorten them quickly, or for just a manuever/a few steps. I weight the straps, too, to reduce reliance on my hands' grip. I appreciate the tips; carbide bites into rock and boulders with a confident hold, and I interchange baskets so I don't "post-hole" the pole... These are light poles, but they could be lighter by utilizing some carbon fiber section(s). That's the trade-off BD and I both made to get strength and reliability along with all my other requirements. Oh, and these are on the spendy end of the spectrum... but experience shows I'd rather invest once... (my REI z-fold adjustable carbon poles broke, and no warranty after 12 months... my gear should last 5-7 years). Conclusion: very happy. Stoked, even. Excuse me, I'm headed out and up a mountain tonight. Enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great poles I had the older version of these poles and found the new updated ones to be more streamlined. The bottom locking buckle is now a slider which is easier to lock/unclock and much quick to fold/unfold. The leashes are a bit tighter which make it a bit harder to put my hands through them when using gloves but it's not that bad. My favorite aspect about these poles is the short profile when they are folded, very easy to get them in a pack on a summit push when the climbing gets steep. They are not the lightest poles around but the alternative would be to go for the carbon ones which are feather lite but not as durable as these ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Filled th bill My non collapsible Black Diamon Trekking Poles, whihc I love, collapsed to 26 inches and wouldn't fit into the suitcase I wanted to take to Zermatt Switzerland. These collapsible jobs were a little difficult to learn how to reconfigure but once you get the hang of it they are no problem. These were a life saver for the first two days of just trekking around Zermatt, the Matterhorn Glacial Palace, etc. They were exactly what I needed and no problems so far.

Are a great addition to anyone that spends time in the woods !!! I am not as stable as I once was !!! Walk with confidence anywhere !!! Hunting or just walking !!! They are a great assist in going up hill or down , ANYWHERE !!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke after 2 months. One pole broke after only 2 months. Because it happened inside the lock it was impossible to see it before it happened. I will not call them "durable", as it sais in the description. I do no recommend these poles to anyone.
