Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best All-Around Pole I've Ever Owned I'm upgrading my trekking poll arsenal and switching from Leki to Black Diamond. I primarily bought these with snowshoeing in mind, however I would love to get another pair to use for big backpacking trips. One thing I love is the purity of the cork handle. Whereas the Leki handles were very ergonomic, I much prefer the feel of the entire handle being this brand of cork. It's so much more comfortable, and I believe will perform better in the long term. This is my first pair of carbon fiber poles and I love the low weight, and also love the Flicklock Pro system. It seems very solid. I've only taken them on a test run and will hopefully remember to update this review after I've put them through rigorous use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from some design flaws I bought this about a year ago from REI (just posted a review there, too). I bought the women's size. I have the same issues as a couple of other reviewers: I almost lost the lower half of a pole hiking, since the shortest setting doesnt allow the lower clamp to be locked down. Also, after just a few uses, the plastic cover on the clamps broke on 2 of the clamps. I know it's not integral, however, it does keep snow and dirt out, and it feels like poles at this price point shouldn't have parts that crack so easily. I'm considering exchanging these for Leki poles the next time I visit REI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Special Trekking Pole I've had my Alpine Corks for 3 years now. Yes, they're durable, lightweight and fit almost anybody. But I didn't know how durable until recently when I repeatedly slammed the plastic tip of one of my Alpine Corks in a car door not knowing it was there. When I inspected the pole and found the plastic tip bent almost 30 degrees off center, I thought I had killed it. However, since I had a steep and rocky climb the next morning I decided to use it anyways. The next morning while going over my gear I discovered that the plastic tip had self-righted almost to dead center. Needless to say, the pole worked fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skookum poles! I bought these as an upgrade to my BD Trail Ergo poles which are also excellent and have served me well for many years and miles. I am impressed at the jump in quality from those to the Alpine Carbon poles. These are a class act! The Alpine Carbon poles feel much sturdier and solid when weighted. They don't wobble or vibrate when they hit the ground and are way stronger than any tent pole for holding up a shelter or tarp. The adjustment locks are much nicer than any other I've seen. They are solid and easy to use. The cork grips are comfortable and my last pair aged well and proved to be durable. I do like the forward leaning design of the ergo models, especially for descending steep terrain, but these are only offered with a vertical grip. I've put these to some serious abuse and have no doubt they will last a really long time. Definitely a worthwhile investment if you hike with poles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast & easy to adjust, tough I bought these a long time ago. Love the FlickLock design the numbers on side make it easy to adjust to lengths that work for climbs or descents. I’ve had them get stuck in boulders that bent the non-BD models I had before, these keep on going. The cork handles are comfortable and the extra grip below the cork handle is great for those moments when you feel like a walking stick grip. It’s great having the big and small baskets for whatever conditions you meet. AND the snow baskets stay on in deep snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, durable and comfortable Not even sure what year mine are, 2016 or 17. (Two sets). You can’t adjust down the last couple inches on the bottom section because of the tapering, which I don’t consider a flaw. Also, if you choose to carry one or both on your pack I suggest you carry them upside down in case something catches the compression closer and you lose a section or two. I learned that the hard way, but BD replaced the lost section at a very reasonable price. They may not be the lightest they make up for it in durability. Everyone I’ve lent these to have raved about them and some have become converts to using trekking poles. A great product, thanks BD!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Plastic piece broke while adjusting length. I bought them and as soon as I got home they broke! The plastic piece that covers the latch snapped right off. I haven't even took them on a hike yet and it already failed. It still works even without the piece but the adjusting screw is exposed to the elements and pushing a hard metal latch wouldn't be very comfortable when adjusting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Plastic cover on FlickLock arrived broken These trekking poles seem great, but the plastic cover on one of the FlickLocks arrived broken. This makes it pretty difficult to open with your fingers as the metal part is rather narrow and a bit sharp.
