View Full Discussion Just hiked six Adirondack 46ers in 3 days in -40 windchill conditions. The Fizan poles performed well on these challenging hikes! I used them on descents mostly and found them especially useful descending from Giant after the sun had set. The poles are light but sturdy. The twist locking is easiest to deal with in cold weather if you keep them loose while not in use and then tighten them by holding the basket and the grip. The snow baskets are hard to install (they snap in) but that means they're hard to remove which means you wont lose them in the snow. For the price and weight, these poles are definitely awesome.
Watch a short video of the hikes here: https://youtu.be/mjb_wyfb8KI
Fizan poles are great. I use them on thru hikes and part of a tarp set up.
I should say I have broken two sets on
quite lively river crossing . minimal weight clearly has strength issues. In future any thru hikes with sketchy crossings i will use another brand.
Please consider carefully
Watched the whole video. No pictures except for less than seconds of the walking poles in use.
True. Not a review video. My point was that these were intense winter hikes that would not have been possible without poles. I was wary of how the Fizan poles would handle the conditions but they did well.
