Black Diamond First Strike Trekking Poles

Kids may not need trekking poles to save their knees like Mom and Dad do, but they sure feel cool when they get to use them.

14oz.

Kids may not need trekking poles to save their knees like Mom and Dad do, but they sure feel cool when they get to use them. That’s the consensus among our staff parents, who believe that happy kids hike longer. These sturdy, two-section poles adjust from 26 to 43 inches, so they work for children ages 3 to 14 (5-foot adults also find them practical). Downsized rubber grips are easy for little hands to grasp, as is the single FlickLock mechanism.

$55 per pair; 13.9 oz. (pair); blackdiamondequipment.com
