Alpine Carbon Z Trekking Poles is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I have only used them for a short walk. I think they are a little long so the scale doesn't work so great. Light and strong but will see how they do in the mountains while wearing a big pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you know what you want, you can actually get it I got this a few weeks ago did 3 hikes so far, mucky Florida. The trekking pole works well and all the extra details of quality are there. As with all gear care is up to the owner, I keep them built but unlocked, standing upright. The pole is used for getting spiderwebs out of my way and helps my knee in reducing stress and pressure. The poles are really lightweight and fell nice and sturdy. I got the size I knew would work and the size does indeed work. How can I pick this thing apart and find some flaw, honestly I can not do that as of now, I am really happy so far with this item and the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lives up to its billing I bought these poles to serve for hiking, ski touring, and travel, and they seem to fit the bill. They are light but still feel solid, and pack down small enough to fit in a suitcase. I like that they come with the extra pieces needed for snow and for hiking on earthen or rocky terrain. You don't have to bother with finding and buying the accessories: they're included. With Black Diamond quality I expect to use these for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid & Strong!!! Ive had a few sets of trekking poles over the years. They’ve all been adequate, but now I couldn’t go back to them! BD, these poles are just awesome! Lightweight but bomber, comfortable & ergonomic. These will last me for a good while! Thanks again BD!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Investment! I've used these poles on several steep hiking trails since I bought them, and they're so great to give stability on the steep and narrow uphill and downhill trails. I feel like I can safely try out more difficult trails because these provide the strength and support I need to feel confident. They're incredibly easy to put together, perfect for my arthritis, and they weigh next to nothing! The cork handle grip makes it so you can use them all day without your hands getting sweaty or sore. I definitely recommend these poles!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight & Compact Fantastic weight, cork hand grips and straps. Really enjoy the versatility of using both the rock and the ice tips as well as the different baskets that can be deployed based on the terrain or activity. The weight and size of the poles is fantastic when you're covering long distances or need to fly to your destination. I learned the hard way, however, that these poles are NOT meant for skiing (back-country or in-bounds). After 5-6 months of heavy use, one of the two metal connection pieces gave out (slid into the shaft) after being weighted and the pole required a screwdriver and some epoxy to fix. I was extremely disappointed when this happened but they appear to be manufactured well enough that the repairs should hold up nicely. When I contacted Black Diamond's Warranty Team to resolve the issue, they did so very quickly and professionally. The team kindly informed me that the intended use of the poles did not really include skiing. They provided instructions for fixing the broken pole and even sent me a brand new pair of their back-country specific ski poles to make it right. If you're looking for a very lightweight and company hiking pole made by a great company, look no further!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Features don't work properly Poles seem sturdy enough, although I have only used them for a few miles. But, the straps are supposed to be removeable, but they are not and the hardware is different than in the instructions. I suspect that what was sent to me was used, the steel tips were installed and there were small scratches. But the return policy is very restrictive. Finally, just like the headlamp I got from Black Diamond, too many gimmicks that don't work or don't work smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, rapid deploy, reliable. I owned the Alpine Carbon Cork up until buying these and was satisfied knowing that I had nicer poles than everyone around me, no matter where I went. My philosophy is to do my research, and pick up the nicest product available, trusting that quality to last for as long as I do. With that in mind I was hesitant to buy another set, but these have one key feature which the flicklock poles do not. The Z pole design means they are quicker to deploy, AND pack up shorter to take up less space strapped to my pack. I use them for ground SAR where I find that the most important aspect of a pole is that you actually brought it with you! So often I would leave my Alpine Carbon Cork in the car because I dont think I'll need them today. The size, and overall ballerness of these poles (the Alpine Carbon Z) make them ideal for SAR and tracking, snowhoeing and hiking. Pick up a pair and take them with you, every time.
