Just what I wanted and expected. Love the fully adjustable heights.

Unfortunately, we just got these so have not tried them out, but we have another pair just like them and they have held up three seasons so far, those Austrians know how to make a good product. Thanks for making our quick exchange return of the other poor quality poles so seamless.

Because of a sore shoulder, I needed shorter poles to cross country ski in Michigan. I liked the ability to change the length of poles. They did the trick. It took me a while to figure out how to assemble the poles.....maybe the instructions could have been clearer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBShopr Great choice!
I am new to snowshoeing. After using a friends pair, I fell in love with this activity. I needed equipment...I came to LL Bean! I purchased the women's winter walker snowshoes and I wanted poles for added stability, if needed. I looked at the ww snowshoe package (shoes + poles) and based on some reviews, I knew I wanted a better pole so I purchased the shoes & poles separately. These poles are great! They are easy to use, easy to adjust the proper height (& that height stays put!) and unlike some other reviewers that said the snow basket was hard to put on, my husband put it on with ease. I have been out several times now and my equipment is working great. LL Bean is the place to come to, IMO, for sporting equipment. Their product guarantee is the best!

Rated 3 out of 5 by NorCal Never got to use.
After working over an hour to get the baskets to snap on with no luck and not wanting to scratch them, I sent them back. Maybe they would have worked great?

Rated 3 out of 5 by NorCal Assembly required...and not easy!
Was happy to receive the poles so quickley. Followed the directions to add the baskets and so far cannot get them to snap in place. The diameter of the pole is so small it is hard to get a good grip and I even tried holding it with pliers (padding the pole) and still could not get them to go. I am now trying to soften the baskets by warming them hoping that will help. I was having so much trouble with this I looked at the reviews to see if this was a common issue and was surprised to see it was. Easy fix LLBean, is to add them to the poles before shipping. The box is plenty big enough to do this first instead of as an assembly required. If I cannot get them on after this next try, I am returning them and finding some elsewhere. The product may be great, but if I cannot get them together to use them...

Rated 4 out of 5 by susiekue Great Customer Service
I like these poles--the only problem I had, they kept coming untwisted--so I'd be walking along & all of a sudden they'd be short, no matter how tight I'd make them. Then one of them cracked. Called customer service & they sent me a new pair, no charge. 5 stars for customer service--4 stars for the product (only because of the twisting)

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanfaninMN Great purchase!
I purchased the Winter Walker Snowshoe Poles for our daughter along with the Winter Walker Snowshoes. The poles have performed well in both powdery and wet snow. They seem very sturdy. I am in fact going to be purchasing a set for myself, as one of my present poles would not stay extended during our last outing. We only wish we had more snow here in Minnesota this winter so we could get in more snowshoeing time!

Rated 4 out of 5 Poles easy installation
OMG the cups made of plastic that where designed to gently turn and snap into place where so difficult to put on i almost broke my fingers. Other than that they are what you pay for.
