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.

Great value for money

Been using these poles for 3 years now and generally been happy with them. The tips have finally given up and need replacements. Getting them off was easy, let's see how easy it is to put the replacements on. They are very light, though the claimed 158 grams is just marketing and not how you use the trekking pole (probably just the aluminum part measured without tip, without basket and strap). The sliding mechanism can be a bit fiddly, but in general it works well. Sometimes it doesn't hold well enough, or in winter it can be very hard to loosen the twisting mechanism again. It's also not very easy to adjust these poles while walking, it takes some time and looking at the markings, so not recommended for trail running. The lower part of the pole is smallest and weakest. I have had it bend a couple of times which makes it harder to slide the poles back into the most compact form. The markings on the pole are almost completely worn by scratches after 3 years of use with dust and small particles entering the poles. Because of the adjustability, the poles are very suitable for trekking pole tents and they are sturdy enough to hold up even in strong winds. Because they have no clips on the pole they are also pretty easy to store in the side pocket of a pack. The baskets are useful and light and I like the modular approach where you can replace pretty much everything to keep the poles operating if something breaks. Would not recommend these poles if you are much over 85kg, as they might bend or break if you put a lot of strain on them.

Good value Poles.

I have been using these poles for the last 2 years. I couldn't have done without them on the Cape Wrath trail and the TGO challenge, they saved me from tripping/falling so often. I cannot remember how many times I've thought 'that's going to have broken or bent them' and when I've looked they've been fine. They even survived Austria this year. I have never had them slip but you do have to be make sure you tighten them enough. I think these are a great pole for the price and weight, they have withstood a lot more abuse than I thought they would.
