At Far North Exchange, we have striven to achieve the highest quality in our trekking poles which are both durable and light.

By building our poles with aerospace-grade aluminum, we found that we were able to prevent splintering after impact, an issue which occurs with most carbon fiber poles. Since bearing down hard to brace for a fall is very common, it was important to choose the right material to withstand this action.

We do not use cheaper aluminum which tends to be heavier and lead to more fatigue. This becomes a huge advantage when you consider that in a single hike, you might be lifting the poles thousands of times! We do not want you to make a decision between either strength or weight and with our poles you don’t need to!

How Important Are Strong Trekking Poles?

You need to be able to trust your poles through every challenging season and variety of terrains, whether your crossing creeks, icy trails, loose gravel or steep inclines.

Ease the pressure on your legs and knees by allowing your poles do the work when descending long mountain trails.

If you have balance issues or an injury that requires support, you can trust our poles to get you through your next adventure.

Will they fit in my backpack? Are they the right size for my height?

To fit in your backpack, your poles can be broken down to 21 inches. These will work great for kids 7 and up and for heights between 4ft-6.4ft.

Lightweight and Easy to Adjust I just received my trekking poles. I ordered the green ones. Lightweight, easy to adjust.Chris, the owner, responded quickly by email to my questions. I live in the mountains, which we have had a ton of snow this year. These will help me tremendously, I have been a skier for 30 years and both knees have seen better days. I like that there’s mud and snow adjustments. These will work great on the granite trails when I walk down the path.Convenient carrying case.

No brainer Out of force of habit, I went looking through the box for the instructions. There were none. So I looked at the poles and it was obvious that no instructions are necessary. The pole is telescoping and can be taken apart and put back together easily. It can be completely collapsed (24″) or taken apart (22″), so it will fit nicely into my carry-on bag. The snap levers are easy to use and seem reliable. It can be adjusted and firmly set short enough for a child (under 4′ tall) and long enough for…

Small Company, Big Quality – Plus the Teal is AMAZING! I purchased these due to needing a little extra stability when backpacking due to a knee injury. I haven’t gotten to test them in the great outdoors yet, but I did to a series of stress tests to gauge the solidity of the joints and material. Overall, they seem like they’re going to hold up excellently. The joint hinges not only are tight, but have adjustable screws to ensure they can be snugged back up if necessary – huge for ensuring there isn’t any height slippage when pressure is applied…
