Rated 5 out of 5 by RodBelan from Excellent! After I got my adjustable poles stolen, I started to use my old cross-country straight poles to go off-piste... And I realized «straight» is the new «adjustable», as far as I am concerned. I bought the Exped 1 and I am totally satisfied. Nice grip, comfortable wrist strap and extended foam catch—which makes adjustments irrelevant for me. Simple, solid; that's all I want.

Rated 4 out of 5 by skibunny from Great basic powder poles The powder baskets are great and I love the bright cheerful yellow color. Cons: I struggle to get the wrist straps on and off - when the temperature is cold, the straps stiffen up and with the textured interior, it's hard to slide my gloves in and out. As another reviewer mentioned, the grips do freeze up if they come into contact with snow, but it doesn't impact performance since my gloves are still able to grip the handles just fine

Rated 5 out of 5 by TKnox from Great poles After a few days touring and a couple days on the hill with these poles I'm really impressed with them. Lightweight,sturdy, really comfortable grips while not wearing gloves touring. I like the extended grip section as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sjpowder from Simple and light These are just what I was looking for...simple, light, durable, comfortable grip. Now I don't have to trash my expensive telescoping poles when I am riding the lifts. The only problem is that the wrist strap could be a couple inches longer. With them extended all the way my gloved hands barely fit, and my hands are not exceptionally large. This fits with the theme of BD gloves also running VERY small...I can't wear them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ryan from So good, unreal After using rental poles for the past 5 years and switching over to these bad boys, it's night and day. These poles are awesome; powder baskets are the perfect size, grips are great, and the actual metal tip that digs into the snow is noticeably better than your cheep-o rental poles. Snowked!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EZX Dmytro from Good for freeriding Very good stick at such a low price! Strong in case of failure, easy to move up and very good powder rings. The main reason for buying is extended foam grip which is really useful.
