Gear Review: Komperdell Carbon Ti-2 Powerlock Women Poles

Indestructible ski poles

[ladies ’ choice]

“Astoundingly indestructible,” says our tester after skiing and backpacking with these poles. Credit the mix of materials: titanal (a titanium and aluminum alloy) and ultralight carbon fiber that have been wound for better durability. The flick-lock system is easy to use (even with gloves on), and the contoured foam grips are downsized for women’s hands. $130; 14 oz.; 34-52 in.; komperdell.com
