The MSR Talus TR-3 Trekking Pole is a three-section trekking pole for a compact size when not in use. The Talus TR-3 comes in a pair, one for each hand, so you can battle uphill and downhill in constant changing terrain. The 7000-series aluminum is strong and light and won't mind a bit if you're taking a day hike through the nearby state park or trekking into the mountains for a week. A trigger release allows for on-the-fly adjustments so you can flow from one type of terrain to the next without having to stop. Ensuring the poles stay locked into the place you set is the SureLock™ system, for no-slip as you ease your way around a sketchy bend at the cliff edge. Slide the vented straps onto your wrists for security and wrap your hand around the ergonomic grip for comfortable control throughout the whole adventure.
FEATURES of the MSR Talus TR-3 Trekking Pole
Three-section trekking poles designed and built for mountaineering, trekking and backpacking over difficult terrains
Patent-pending trigger release one-handed adjustment allows for on-the-fly pole-length adjustments to easily respond to terrains
MSR's SureLock System is their positive-locking mechanism that provides the confidence of absolute no-slip performance
Light, strong and reliable 7,000-series aerospace-grade aluminum construction offers incredible strength, but remains ultra light
Ergonomic grip works comfortable with a broad range of hand sizes, and ergonomic, ventilated straps provide breathability in warm climates
Low-profile adjustment mechanism high on the pole reduces shaft weight for an effortless, all-day swing
Compression tip absorbs the impact of hard dirt and rock in a lightweight design
If the product name has the word "pair" in it, that means it comes with TWO trekking poles. If the product name says "single" or has options to select a size, it means that particular style only comes with ONE trekking pole. Sorry to be so confusing. Please don't hate me.

Sturdy and comfortablePurchased these poles for both their intended purpose and as reliable, positive-locking supports for a tent. My previous poles had cork handles, which I liked a lot, but were locked by twisting, which sometimes became loose.
The Talus TR-3 poles have performed admirably since I received them, including during a recent, month-long backpacking trip in New Zealand. The handles, while not cork, never create blisters and I find them extremely comfortable. I tried the quick-release throughout the trip, and it stuck a few times in the very cold. But, using two hands, I was always able to re-adjust.
I particularly like the triangular design of the poles' shafts, the positive-locking mechanisms, and the balance of the weight throughout the pole (which seems to have it always swinging forward while hiking).
