MSR Summer Trekking Pole Design Solves Common Pole Problems

As you can see in the UKClimbing Forums, some people really like using trekking poles, some don't. If you've never used them before, there really are some compelling reasons to consider trying them.

However, traditional poles are not without their problems. To address the issues that have plagued traditional pole designs -- slipping, breaking, and difficult adjustment -- MSR® has solved those problems with smart engineering. Combining a positive-locking push-button design with non-rotating tri-lobe geometry, it's the easiest-to-use, most reliable adjustment system available.

For the benefits of using poles and details on the unique MSR pole design, check out this recent post on MSR's blog, The Summit Register: "MSR Summer Trekking Poles Will Change Your Expectations of What a Pole Should Be."
