Review: Red-Guru Trekking Poles

Out of the box, I was pretty excited to get these poles for some hardcore backcountry backpacking… unfortunately, the product was very different from the included instructions. Assembling the poles was easy, minus the one crucial part where the steel cable inside is supposed to be drawn tight. No, this steel cable (in any of the 4 poles I got) was always loose. You lift the pole up to take a step, and the poles fall out of the handle.

Completely useless. I thought this was a joke, but the website and non-working contact email sealed the fate of this company for me…

Final thoughts: absolute garbage.
