The Montem Trekking Pole is the perfect tool for hiking and walking. If you’re an adventurer like me, then you will definitely use it often while carrying a backpack. With this in mind, having a pole for hiking that can hold your weight and handle abuse is very important. I purchased one and decided to write my own “Montem Trekking Pole Review.”

My previous hiking pole was starting to feel weak and worn out from many uses. I was worried it might be past its time so I thought that I should purchase a new one. After I had looked around online, I came across this “Ultra Strong Montem Trekking Pole” and decided to purchase it. Boy, am I glad I did.

Sturdy Construction

It is hard sometimes to determine the perfect pole for hiking. I used to use the strongest twig I could find in the beginning. That was before it turned into a monthly thing though and my story changed. As I started to realize how often I was going to be camping and hiking, I saw the necessity for one that could handle a decent amount of abuse. I am not a heavyweight but I do wear a backpack with gear when I go hiking, so I needed a strongly built pole for the increased weight. The Montem Ultra Strong Trekking Poles are built from the same materials that are used in airplanes so I had no doubts that it would be able to hold me and all my gear up. To be more specific, the pole is made from aluminum 7075, an aluminum alloy with zinc as the primary element. This type of metal is known to be able to handle a good amount of abuse without breaking or cracking.

With a preformed EVA grip going alongside the pole, it is also perfect for uphill or downhill hikes. Experienced hikers know that when going uphill, you need to grip the lower part of the pole and vice versa for downhill hiking. The grip makes the pole that much more convenient for those unexpected uphill and downhill climbs.

Besides being very strong, the Montem Trekking Poles are also very lightweight. They only weigh in at 9.2 ounces, so it’s not a hassle at all to carry it. I actually use mine for more than just hiking too. I use mine for walking because it eases the stress on my joints by taking the pressures instead of my body taking them.

More Useful Than You Think

A big bonus I realized after purchasing the Montem Trekking Pole is how much more useful it is instead of just hiking. The pole is so strong that I have used it to hold up a shade while camping. I actually compared it to some of my tent poles too, and it was significantly stronger and more rigid. In the case of an emergency, you could also use the Montem Trekking Poles as a splint, especially since it is adjustable in length. I used mine a few times when I was out camping, to clear up spider webs as well. If you live in a snowy area also, you could use the poles to walk and keep from slipping.

So I plan on buying montem poles. Which one is key. I plan on using on trails. Rocks etc. are not for me. I had a hip replacement last year so I plan on avoiding rocks. I can see a positive in the folding poles due to being able to minimize to 16 inches folded. I also see a downside with more parts to tighten which can emphasize weak points. I am thinking of the 24 inch basic one with possibly getting the cork handles versus efa foam. Don’t know if the carbon ones are worth it for 4 ounces. Any views of comments appreciated. The cost of each to me is irrelevant as they all seem to be super buys as compared to the competition. Thanks. Jim
