Backcountry missions to craggy alpine treks.
The Leki Women's Jannu Trekking Poles use high-tensile strength aluminum for lightweight performance with exceptional strength when for pushing your limits in alpine environments. The SpeedLock 2 system offers an extremely high locking force for enhanced safety. Moreover, this system offers 61-centimeters of adjustment (24-inches) for a great fit with a variety of heights and terrain choices.
Wicking moisture off your wrist for warm-weather comfort, the poles' air textured strap provides a cool, airy feel on hot summer days. This strap features a built-in release mechanism for extra safety, should you snag your pole on a rock or take an unexpected spill on the trail. Other cool features include an Aergon soft compact grip for a smooth, ergonomic feel, as well as performance trekking baskets for extra stability and grip.

- Q & A
Be Aware These are Women's Poles
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I searched the Backcountry website under the title Men's Trekking Poles. These came up and appeared to be a very good deal. However, once they arrived I see that the packaging is labeled LadySeries. The color scheme is obviously feminine, and when my son saw them laying on the kitchen table he asked, "Mom, why did you buy trekking poles?"
The poles are probably fine for what they are, so my one star rating is a knock on Backcountry and not the poles themselves, since now I have to pay to return them.
I might add that the straps are not what are depicted in the video review. Instead they are a thin fabric material that may make them lighter, but I doubt that they will hold up to real hard trail use.
Do the poles come as a pair?
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Lightweight, comfortable in hands. Easy to adjust. Nice clips on the adjustments. Well marked for extensions. Strap material is great.
