This review is for the Summates hiking, walking, trekking trail poles.  I needed a pair of these bad boys because I just moved with my family to some of the best hiking in all the country.  We were in Zion national park last week and will probably go to Bryce’s in a couple months.  While I’m still a pretty young dude (late 30s) I thought it would be worth trying out some trekking poles to see if it makes a difference.

So far, my hiking with the Summates poles have been limited, but I like what I see so far.  These are high-quality poles that are easy to grip, easy to carry, and look pretty slick.
