Ideal for trekking crests like Grays Peak, Komperdell's Carbon Expedition Vario 5 Compact Trekking Poles are a terrific solution to your packing qualms. These 4 section, collapsible trekking poles fold down to 11. 81 inches and fit snugly into most equipment bags or luggage.

For optimal comfort, the poles are outfitted with an expedition hand grip and extra padded strap giving your hands a merciful break from inexhaustibly redundant abuse.
