Pretty AwesomeI used a more basic version of these for 45-days backpacking. They were awesome and worked great for everything that I needed. One of my trip mates had this pair and I got to use his one time. They were amazing. The grips are way more comfortable than the cheap pair I got. The straps were noticeably more comfortable. I was so jealous of the springs in the handles because my hands would go numb some days after hiking over rocks for a long time. The handle is a nice bonus for river crossings, but I don't know how much that should sell you. They're really comfortable and they aren't really heavy. I'm pretty tall and these telescope up to my height.They also stopped me a few times from falling off mountains and stuff, whic would of made my trip not so rad. These poles are awesome and I would totally recommend them especially for all the features the simple telescoping design meant that even if they bent a little bit I could still put them away.

Looking Forward to using these more.I agree with the other review. These have very high quality and are great for long distances because the shock absorbers really take a lot of the impact when walking on hard terrain.
