UOG TOP PICK - Fizan Compact Trekking Poles - Lightness and value - We've singled out Fizan's Compact Trekking Poles as one of our top recommendations because they are well engineered and minimise weight by saving on external fittings. They are remarkably strong for their weight and are a true trekking pole.

Fizan says: The lightest trekking pole in the world! Sold as a pair.

Fizan have been making ski and trekking poles since 1947, and were the first (apparently) to use aluminium. Basically they know a thing or two about engineering.

The Fizan Compact poles look very similar to other trekking poles (thickness, 3 sections, foam handle with padded straps etc) but you can save 80-90g over even the lightest carbon models. 

They don`t have ferrules around the joints as their jointing mechanism is completely enclosed inside the shaft of the pole, saving on weight.

As well as baskets, Fizan include rubber feet for using on hard surfaces.

Light poles but some drawbacks

These poles are certainly very light, and pack down nice and short, which was my main reason for buying them. My main issue with them is that they have a tendency, if not tightened pretty hard, to telescope down when weight is put on them, or worse still, for the sections to come apart if the basket gets snagged on something, which risks losing part of your pole if you are in a situation where it can't be retrieved. And if you tighten the sections up sufficiently to avoid this, it can be very difficult to undo them as there is nothing to grip externally. Last time this happened I was unable to collapse one completely until I got home and had access to a pair of pliers.

Great trekking poles

Decided to go from one to two poles and to be lightweight. Not disappointed. Speedy delivery from UOG and when I had a question they were excellent on phone. The light weight poles are a delight. Why have any extra weight on your arms? Folds down to fit in suitcase too, if required. Basket fit is super tight and doesn't feel like they will be dropping off. Really like extending the bottom section to its maximum, then adjusting to the correct length with the top section. Takes out one level of decision making. Smooth movement too. Handles are comfortable in all weathers. Just used in La Gomera and El Hierro with rough volcanic rock and they came through with flying colours. Overall, a great purchase and helpful UOG review.
