This is an article I had for quite a while as a draft. As part of my yearly cleanup, I've published it without finishing it. It might not be finished or have other problems.
I've always hiked without poles, but for Nepal my guide recommends to take poles.
- Handles: You hold the trekking poles several hours a day, for several days in a row. They better feel good. Kork seems to be a popular choice.
- Material: Super bad review for carbon fiber / Aluminium
- Type: Z-Type, FlickLock
- Snow Baskets
First brand name I've heard was Black Diamond. Within Bittel Sport (local sport shop), I found a lot of Leki.
