UOG TOP PICK - Black Diamond Distance FLZ Poles - We've singled out Black Diamond's Distance FLZ Trekking Poles as top quality poles. With a low weight, small pack size and durable design these are a great set of trekking poles. The ability to adjust the length for ascents and descents is a massive bonus on foldable poles like these.
Combining the compactibility of a 3-section Z-Pole with the adjustability of FlickLock, the Distance FLZ is an excellent choice for long hikes, steep approaches, stream crossings—or for supporting your tarp shelter. Now with improved joint support and the new SlideLock technology, the Distance FLZ is a three-season pole built for the mountains.
Black Diamond says:
Like a good adventure partner, the Distance FLZ is strong when you aren’t, supportive when you’re bonking and easily adjustable when the terrain calls for adaptability. Now combining our new SlideLock technology, which makes locking and collapsing the pole even easier, with FlickLock® adjustability, the Distance FLZ is a mainstay for hard-hitting mountain adventurers. The upgraded Distance FLZ is also 30% stiffer with improved joint support. The pole’s three-section foldable design allows for fast-response deployment, making the Distance FLZ the ultimate, adaptable three-season pole with durable aluminum construction.

Black Diamond say that these poles are good for 'bonking' but we're not quite sure what that is. But if your after a lightweight, collapsible and adjustable pole for your adventures then the Distance FLZ is for you.
The Trekking Pole features aluminium construction with a collapsible shaft that assembles with a quick pull so you can whip it out of your pack and be ready to go in a jiff. Unlike the Carbon Z model, this one has FlickLock adjustability which allows you to adjust the pole lengths quickly with no hassle.
The lightweight EVA handle and foam extension give you a comfortable grip and the ability to choke up on tricky or steep terrain, while the padded, breathable, and moisture wicking strap provides lightweight support during long, arduous days. The Distance FLZ also comes complete with interchangeable carbide and rubber Tech Tips, so you can confidently cross anything without your poles letting you down.
