LEKI TRAIL WALKING POLE REVIEW (1)

Leki Trail Walking Poles Reviewed by TRAIL Magazine.

Review: Even the most basic design of pole will take its share of the load and improve walking performance. If it’s well-made, strong, reasonably light, ultra-reliable and available for a very reasonable £40 per pair like the Leki Trail, then it’s going to take some beating.

CUSTOMER REVIEW: LEKI KHUMBU SPEEDLOCK TREKKING POLES

A customers review of the Leki Khumbu Speedlock Trekking Poles

I’ve just returned from a two week backpacking holiday in Scotland using the Leki Khumbu speed lock poles I bought online from you after asking your advice on the phone, I was very impressed.

Being quite a big lad I put quite a lot of pressure through my trekking poles and found the Khumbu speed lock poles more than up to the task while carrying a big pack up and down the Munro’s we visited during our trip.

The Speed Lock adjustment worked really well when adjusting the poles for the long, tiring descents. As you mentioned on your website, they were easy to adjust even when exhausted from a long days walking and while wearing my gloves, they have been totally reliable.
The other feature I really liked was the new handle and strap arrangement, the rounded top section of the Aergon handle provides a really comfortable grip. The last thing I need during a long walking trip is uncomfortable gear and these poles are the most comfortable I’ve ever used. The Khumbu speed lock’s even came in useful during a particularly windy night in the tent on Skye, using the two bottom sections of the poles as storm pegs to hold the tent on the ground!

I would recommend the Khumbu poles to anyone wanting an absolutely dependable trekking pole for British hill walking. Worth every penny and backed up by great service from the ‘Head to the Hills’ staff, thank you.

REVIEW: LEKI CARBONLITE TREKKING POLES (2)

Leki Carbonlite Trekking Pole review from online Backpacker Magazine

Carbon-fibre trekking poles are light, stiff, and strong, but most constructions become fragile when scratched or abraded. Enter these top-of-the-line sticks, which have a woven multilayer construction and protective varnish for durability.

CUSTOMER REVIEW: LEKI WALKING POLE BAG

I recently purchased a Leki Walking & Trekking Pole Bag, online from Head to the Hills, the transaction was swift and easy as I could use Paypal to pay, the pole bag is the Bees Knees having ample length to accommodate my poles ( Leki Makalu Summit ) with a snap buckle closure at the open end, there is a 1.5 inch web sling that runs the whole length of the bag with lots of adjustment.

CUSTOMER REVIEW: LEKI WALKING POLE BAG

I recently purchased a Leki Walking & Trekking Pole Bag, online from Head to the Hills, the transaction was swift and easy as I could use Paypal to pay, the pole bag is the Bees Knees having ample length to accommodate my poles ( Leki Makalu Summit ) with a snap buckle closure at the open end, there is a 1.5 inch web sling that runs the whole length of the bag with lots of adjustment.

The Pole Bag seems to be constructed of the same type of nylon material that my Caving Oversuit is, so should be strong with good resistance to abrasion.

My style of walking – scrambling means I don’t use my poles all the time I’m on the Hill, so I have to stow my poles in my rucksack if I can’t be bothered to carry them, which is a pain, now I can carry them over my shoulder in my bag!

Thanks kind regards, Allen Vowles.
