Greetings Outdoor Adventurers, The original Fizan Compact Trekking Poles have been a favorite here on Massdrop every since we started selling them. They have the strongest twist-lock mechanisms, and are one of the lightest collapsible and adjustable poles in the world, at a fraction of the price of the nearest competitors. We have taken the comments and reviews from the thousands of members who bought the original poles, and working with Fizan over the last year to come up with this Massdrop exclusive. The new Compact poles sport a reshaped grip, a soft, smooth strap, a burlier grippier hiking tip cover, and a third set of larger baskets that will be useful in snow or sand. I used to think trekking poles were unnecessary and even dorky, but that was when I was first getting into backpacking as a college student. One winter I went on a particularly treacherous 3-day trip along the California coast, where we hit rain, hail, swollen river crossings, and numerous steep up and downs. The poles saved that trip and I became a convert. I now recommend poles for most people, regardless of how often or hard you hike, or how much you carry. It helps you going uphill, saves your knees on the downhill, stabilizes you on rocks and river crossings, and can help you avoid injury from falling. I find that it helps me keep a nice pace, regardless of speed. And for many of us, poles are useful for serving double-duty as part of our shelter structure. I'm really excited about these poles because we're talking the most affordable, reliable ultralight poles and making them better, based on your feedback.

Hey y’all curious for anyone who’s bought the 4s what your decision process was? I’m leaning towards waiting for the 3s if they come but a bit on the fence as I’d love to have them sooner

Got another member here hoping for a return of the Compact 3's. We were told the earliest a new batch would be available is mid-November. Does this mean Drop does in fact intend to make more available at some point, or is it probable we will never see their like again?

Thanks for the bump, working on it now. The earliest we would be able to get them would likely be mid November as a heads up.
