The Ultra Mountain FL Trekking Pole from Black Diamond is a lovely bit of kit which can be used for everything from light hikes to heavy trekking and snowshoeing to backcountry ski tours, featuring ‘women's-specific sizing’ (as well as colours which are more likely to appeal to women than men).

The poles combine the compactability of Black Diamond’s Z-Pole technology with 20 cm of FlickLock Pro adjustability – it takes just a few seconds to adjust them to length, and when it comes to packing they’ll fold away to fit easily either inside or outside even a day pack thanks to the three-section Z-Pole folding design.

Made from durable aluminium they come complete with season-specific baskets and a lightweight Mountain Series EVA foam grip with breathable moisture wicking strap, along with a non-slip foam mini-grip extension and toughFlex Tech Tips; essentially you have all of Black Diamond’s best pole features combined in one superb product, hence the price. But in return for your money  you get one set of top quality poles that can be used year round.
