"Great for light duty hiking and trail running"
This way easy lightweight "Z" poles are perfect for hiking with a light pack or trail running. They fold up and stow away easily. I love poles for the up and downhill trail running I do and when I don't feel like using them I stow 'em or fold and carry 'em. My only complaint is that they are women specific and so the grips are more narrow. My hands are small to medium sized, and I would like a more unisex sized grip. I might put some bike handlebar tape around the grips.
