Very light in weight.
Easilly adjustable to any length. I'm 6'2"
Very sturdy / strong. I weigh 235 lbs.
Good basket and I think it's a carbide tip.
Adjustable wrist straps and comfortable grips.
Spring piston gives you that little push when you need it.
Can't really think of any considering the price.
I didn't care for the bright metalic blue color, so I wrapped mine with cloth camo tape for a more subtle profile.
Oh, and be careful to NOT extend the poles past the "Stop" mark.
My Son has Trekking poles from REI that cost him over $120 for the pair. They have the same functions as mine do, and may be a little bit lighter, but for the $80 savings I had versus his "Big Name Brand" poles... I'll suffer through a ounce or two of extra weight with joy.
I've put 25-30 miles on these on different hiking trips with good success. These were outings with a fair amount of elevation changes.... Without a good pair of Trekking Poles, I'm not certain I would have been able to go as far and as long.
