Easy to adjust, easy to deploy, and easy to pack.
Before embarking on a multi-day backpacking excursion, prepare for rugged terrain by wrapping your mitts around the Black Diamond Women's Distance FLZ Trekking Poles. These lightweight aluminum poles collapse into three short sections for easy packing and rock a FlickLock Pro length-adjustment mechanism that provides 8in of versatility. All this is no good if you can't hold your pole properly, so Black Diamond made sure the EVA foam grip was ergonomically designed to fit women's hands and included a foam grip extension to make uneven terrain that much easier to navigate. Last but not least, the interchangeable carbide and rubber Flex Tech Tips help you make short, non-slip work of rocky, sandy, snowy, and icy terrain, so you end up on the summit and not your butt.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I love these poles. I broke my leg a few years ago and have never fully recovered -- because of this I have some trouble on longer hikes and especially going downhill. I don't need the poles for the entire hike, so it's nice to be able to tuck them into my bag or strap them onto my fanny pack. They are so compact and easy to travel with. And they're very sturdy when I do end up needing them. They've been a lifesaver on many hikes!
