Last year we featured the titanium Micro Vario by our friends at LEKI’s, and we thought that it was a perfect piece of gear for exploring. But they’ve just come out with a new women’s trekking pole – the Micro Vario Ladies Carbon, and it’s even better! It has the same great features – compact, strong, stable, their special, soft, non-slip AERGON grip, and their patented SpeedLock system allowing adjustment of the pole height without any tools. On top of all that, it’s constructed out of carbon, making it ultra-lightweight at only 15.7 oz/per pair! It was super comfortable to use with no wrist or arm fatigue on a recent trek in the mountains. This is definitely the trekking pole for all you TrailblazerGirl hikers, mountaineers and trail-runners!
