Our Verdict

Gram-counter Gear's Fastpacker Carbon Trekking Poles are made by us, which is why we can offer them a such a great price, the design is not revolutionary but the value is. What you get is a pair of trekking poles made from carbon fibre which means they can be made very lightweight while still retaining impressive strength.

They have a comfortable foam grip and a fleece backed fully adjustable wrist strap that is easy to adjust. Each section is twist locked into place using internal flexi expanders and the end of the pole section has a strong plastic ferrule to maintain its integrity.

The poles come with a standard basket and a larger snow basket, both are screwed into place making them easy to change over as and when required. The Fastpacker poles also come with rubber tips for use on rocky routes and roads.
