        These hiking poles work great. I like the way they open and close easily. I didn't like adjusting my old poles as I was hiking and the extended grip on these poles will be great when going up and down hills without having to make adjustments to the length. The soft case for storage is a plus.

          The compactness is what I was looking for. I need to take the poles on airplanes, as well as store them in my bag when I need to use all my four limbs for rock climbing. These are the most compact I could find and worked well for me. However, I have used those collapse type (one piece) as opposed to this folding type (three pieces). The collapse type offers considerable advantage when I pack four poles in my bag (for myself and wife).

            Comments about Black Diamond Distance FL Poles (pair):

            I bought these poles for a week long backpacking trip on the Long Trail in Vermont. We experienced horrendous storms that made footing treacherous and progress very slow. These poles held up extremely well. I'm 6'5" and 245# and am suprised they didn't break after a few slips while carrying 75# of gear downs some rough sections. (Yes that's a way too much weight but we had an injury along the way and had to carry the injured's gear.) The poles flex a lot without permanent bends. They are lightweight, easy to adjust and have good grips. The only shortcoming is that the straps started to shred a bit after a few days. They do still work though and never let me down.

              Diane K  How do I decide which size I need?
              EFRAT O  Diane Hi, I'm 5 ft 7 and use the 105-125cm (setting it to ~120cm) In general pole length should be set as follows: Put your arm at the side of your body then bend the elbow at a 90 degree angle so your forearm is parallel to the floor. The height of your palm above the floor is the pole length you need.
              Diane K  Very clear. Thank you.
              emil t  do these z poles collapse to the same distance than th z pole. ie z-pole vs. fl z-pole?
              DAVID C  Not enough info to answer the question. The distance fl pole comes in three different sizes which collapse to different lengths.
