Great flexibility now comes with great rigidity, a pair of compact aluminium trekking poles which packs down almost to the length of a school ruler!

If you are on a mountainous trek it is unlikely you will want your poles in your hands all the time. You might face a tricky scramble where you just need to stow them away fast, the shorter your poles the less likely they are to get in the way.

The lower sections fit together just like a tent pole, you then pull out the lower section which tightens the internal cable and locks tight with a push button lock. The length of the pole is adjusted by sliding the handle section up and down and is secured into place with a single easy operation snap lock. As there is just one locking mechanism it is easier to maintain.

The Compact Ultras break down to a stumpy 38 cm for stashing onto a daypack or even stashing into your hold luggage.

At the business end of the pole the hard tungsten tip provides great grip as well as ensuring longevity, while for more delicate terrains we provide a rubber tip protector. A screw fit rubber basket helps stop you pushing through boggy ground or even getting your poles trapped between rocks.

Could do better...

Strong, light, small pack size - yes! However, the handles are not comfy, especially when going downhill and you want to place your palms on top. In addition, I'm not convinced by the hand loops 1. could be a bit dodgy if you fell whilst strapped in (I didn't try this, so not sure what would happen) 2. you wouldn't be able to wear a thick pair of winter gloves whilst using the hand loops or if you've hands like shovels.

Compact walking poles

Light weight, very compact & easily fit into a small rucksack or small suitcase. I did wonder how robust they might be but used them for a week of low level walking in the Alps so rocky walking and they still seem perfect. Would definitely recommend.

Fantastic for long days and just in case!

These get thrown into my pack for every longer hike, two mean one for me and one for a friend if needed! I've also walked continuously for 8+ hour days and found them very comfortable. Top notch!

Efficient and Light

I have used these poles on days walks and more recently on a 5 day trek in Scotland. These poles were amazing. They literally took the load off and gave me good stability in difficult terrain.
They pack away nicely and on to the side of my pack, leaving room in there for more items. The only thing that hasn't worked is the basket grip, which is now flexing and will soon break off.
Overall, a bargain price for a good bit of lightweight kit that will help in long walks.
