BreakdownWhether you still have a long ascent ahead, or you're packing meat back to camp, the Journey is a stable and reliable partner. The Journey features the LEKI's original SpeedLock system for adjusting pole length in seconds in addition to the PA (Positive Angle) Soft grip and the matching Lock Security strap.
I rocked the Leki Cristallo’s for 3-4 years and really like most of the features and design of those poles. Leki does a good job of making functional, durable, and lightweight fit into one package. The speed locks on my Cristallos broke on a recent spring bear outing, so I looked for something comparable, and these seemed to fit the bill. For the price, I don’t believe these can be beat. They’re stout, the speed lock system is great, and the grips are comfortable. I’m not a fan of overly lightweight items that are relied upon for carrying heavy weight, or extended durability usage. This is an item that I believe falls into that category where worrying about durability or reliability shouldn’t be compromised. Solid set of sticks. Will help you get out of those nasty canyon bottoms with weight on your back more comfortably.
I haven't put them to the full test yet, but they appear very well built, yet lighter in weight. Looking forward to getting them out for some hiking!
Have not had enough time to really test them out but they have down well in the small trials I have taken them on.
