I've decided to buy a pair of trekking poles to take on day hikes and after spending hours reading reviews and watching videos I could use some help. Budget poles like Foxelli ($70), Montem Ultra Strong ($60), and Cascade ($40) are recommended on a few review sites and Youtube reviewers. When I read the Amazon reviews they really seem hit or miss though. People either have good luck with them or they break after a few hikes. They are affordable the first time, but if they break I'll have spent as much as one of the more expensive sets. The Black Diamond Distance Z poles are liked by Outdoor Gear labs, but they aren't adjustable, which is something I'd like in order to use them with a tarp. They also liked the Black Diamond Alpine, but they run $150, which is pretty privy for a piece of gear I've never used before. My next question is anything can obviously break, but are they substantially less likely to do so than one of the budget poles? What would you all suggest? I'd like something that won't take up much space to pair with a 22 liter Osprey pack.
