QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I always used a sturdy wood hiking stick backpacking, and can only remember one of the many I've owned over the years breaking on me while backpacking. I'm getting up there in years and am moving to ultra-light to stay out there as long as I can. This past summer I carried a colapsible carbon fiber walking stick to double as a tarp pole for the 1st time. It was expensive, more than yours. I'm 6'1", weigh 180 pounds and was carrying a 33 pound pack. Early on my 1st day I was walking on slippery boulders, tripped on something, went forward, put my stick out in front of me to catch my balance and it snapped at one of the joints. I went down full force on both knees and my right elbow. The wounds have healed, but I'm still tender to pressure on my knees and elbow. That trip was maybe not ruined, but totally altered. I base camped instead of backpacked. Still on course with my ultra-light plans and downsizing significantly from that 33 pounds. I would very much like to get a walking stick that I could double as a tarp pole (49" high is best for my tarp) instead of bringing a wood walking stick and a separate tent pole. I do not expect you to guarantee that your pole won't snap under similar circumstances, but can you expand on the strength aspects of your pole, say in comparison to wood, trekking poles, etc.?
Russell, this is very helpful informantion. While no guarantees, our pole is designed for needs like this. Yes, for your situation, needing a dual purpose walking and tarp pole, our standard height pole, put at the tallest setting could work well. Consider two. 250-300 lbs max weight bearing on EarthTrek Gear Pole, so you should be safe and fine. We hope this helps. Let us know how our pole works for you.
Does this pole come with a belt case?
It comes with a stuff sack that you can pack in a bag or attach outside, but the sack is not a belt case.
I love my EarthTrek pole for short women! It has been to Seattle, London, Paris, Rome, Florence and Venice as well as being used around my town. I've loved it so much, my husband had to replace the pole tip before my last European trip. I love the fact that I can fold up the pole when needed which I especially appreciate when flying. Alas, on my last trip I lost the black carrying bag. Rats! I loved that I cold fold the pole into the bag and not have to have somebody put the stick into the overhead compartment. (I've never been able to reach that high so it just isn't convenient.) Is there any chance that you might have any extra carry bags around for people like me who love the pole so much but alas lost the bag on a trip? Thanks for your thoughts. M Cathy Boutin
Cathy, were you able to get the extra bags?
Will this pass TSA requirements for carry on luggage?
Officially, TSA recommends checking-in trekking poles, rather than carry-on. https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/whatcanibring/items/hiking-poles As for collapsible poles, it is not sure. A good forum for this is: https://community.ricksteves.com/travel-forum/general-europe/packing-trekking-poles We recommend checking in your poles. If you must insist on using the poles throughout the airport, perhaps ask for a TSA escort during security check, who assist handicapped and people with special situations. As for the airline, every one is different. Although there is no federal standard stamp for TSA compliance for these kind of products, EarthTrek Pole is designed compactly for air travel and a walk-assistance product, and accompanies our users on thousands of air travel trips. We have not heard of turn-aways, but let us know if that happens.
Can I remove the screw at the top and put a camera mount in it?
Many of our customers do it all the time. While we do not warranty the use of it, a good camera mount will should be able to hold on tightly. Test carefully. But yes, many EarthTrek Gear customers enjoy using their pole as a camera monopod.
How much time does it take to set up?
Instant. Pull the trekking pole out of the bag and it snaps together. Stashing it away is almost as quick; about 10 seconds, unhook each section and pack in bag.
