"Instead of continuing to look for the very best solution, today I purchased the cheapest solution at Wally World. It's an Outdoor Products pole that collapses down to only 24 inches. Cost $12.88."
I am currently using a pair of the WalMart / Outdoor Products poles. But I keep looking longingly at the CAMP Xenon 4's.
The price is $69.95, weight per pair is 120cm / 9.9oz and 135cm / 10.6oz and if I did my math correctly they break down to 12.6" & 14.2" respectively.
And they have snow baskets.
My current Wally World / Outdoor Products poles work so well I just can't seem to justify the extra $44.00 and change. :-?
