We own two other sets of hiking poles that we bought from a local sporting store - they are worth about 3x what these Trekology poles are worth. The Trekology poles surprise me. They come in a carrying bag that zippers closed, but you have the option of using a shoulder strap and opening up the bag for top access. The poles themselves impress me, especially for the price! You get pretty much every style of attachment, including snow baskets, mud stops, rubber feet, and rubber tips. Of course, the standard carbide tip is also there if you decide not to use any of the rubber feet. There are two locks on each pole and they both feel sturdy and secure. The entire pole extends up to 135cm with measurement markers indicating the height. The primary grips are form-fitted (aka "ergonomic grip") and looks like cork, but is not actual cork from what I can tell. On the top of each pole, you also get wrist straps. Below the primary grip is a cylinder foam grip that's designed for more adverse weather. This secondary grip is not always on hiking poles, so this is a great addition. These poles are made of aluminum, which is my preference for hiking, and they are 275g per pole without a basket or rubber tip attached. Compared to the most expensive poles we own, I actually think these are more comfortable to use and offer a better value.
