Walking poles are important tools in the mountains. Adding stability and taking stress off joints these tools can make hauling out that trophy Dall a little less painful. Trekking poles can also help you form a rhythm while hiking, improving stamina and endurance. These poles can also often double at tent poles or poles for tarp shelters and are especially helpful during potentially dangerous river crossings.
The Leki Corklite yet another great product from Leki. These poles are great for colder weather due to the cork grip. Cork retains heat from your hands, unlike plastic, and can help keep your hands warm on long treks in high alpine regions.
