WTB affordable trekking poles on 07/21/2011 17:45:23 MDT Print View

I'm looking for an affordable set of used adjustable trekking poles. Tired of using my modified xc ski poles to pitch the shelter. I'm 6' 2" and would prefer a cork grip, but I won't be too picky. Thanks!

I don't know if this is your cup of tea, but I recently reported on what I purchased at Wally World. It was an 3-segment adjustable trekking pole by Outdoor Products for $12.88.

It is not a perfect example of anything, except for price.

If you like wood like me, take a look at Brazos Walking Sticks new Traveler's Stick that you can breakdown.

+1 for the Outdoor Products camlock poles at Walmart. To be entirely forthcoming I did break (bent and then snapped when I attempted to straighten it)one 2 years ago when my feet slipped on a wet rock in PA and I put my entire 200+ lbs on it. But for 13 bucks I didn't cry over it.
