Black Diamond Ultra Distance Z-Pole Trekking Poles - 120cm on 04/19/2011 15:00:16 MDT Print View

I posted this same deal at Slickdeals, but now methinks that the BackpackingLight crowd will appreciate it more. Here goes: eBikeStop.com has Black Diamond's Ultra Distance Z-Pole Trekking Poles (carbon fiber shafts) on sale/clearance - these same poles won a Backpacker's magazine 2011 Editor's Choice and are ultralight at 9.2 ounces per pair.

The only size still in stock is 120cm version (5'8"-5'11") - http://www.ebikestop.com/black_diamond_z_pole_ultra_distance_trekking_poles_120cm-OP2003.php

Price for poles only is $103.95 + $3.00 oversize item charge + $8 shipping for a total of $114.95 - note that these poles usually retail for $149.95.

Also, free shipping is available with code bikerbunny (expires 4/20/2011) if you spend at least $125.

My recommendation for free shipping filler is an Outdoor Research Helios Sun Hat for $23.95 (which is about as good a price I could find for this hat anywhere):
Med - http://www.ebikestop.com/outdoor_research_helios_sun_hat_sand_md_57cm-CL8413.php
Lg - http://www.ebikestop.com/outdoor_research_helios_sun_hat_sand_lg_59cm-CL8414.php
XL - http://www.ebikestop.com/outdoor_research_helios_sun_hat_sand_xl_61cm-CL8415.php

With poles + hat you are shipped for $130.90, which is still about $20 less that what REI/Backcountry charge for the poles alone.

i have had moosejaw match prices from competitors even when those prices are with a coupon code - you can just send them a screenshot of your cart with coupon code applied at that store.

the poles at backcountryedge are the reg distance poles and that is the reg price everywhere, the ultra distance poles have a reg price of $149.99 and are lighter.
