I'm not a huge fan of trekking poles, but when I do need them, these are my favorite. I like the fliplock features which makes adjustments quick and easy when you are on the move. I also like the variety of tips and cages that you can quickly change with the elements, especially in winter when you go from snow to pavement. The handles have a great gripping function that work for both myself and for my kids. It's nice that it feels universal for all of us. Great product and solid choice.
