In the last month, my wife and I had a chance to field-test the new Komperdell Carbon Duolock trekking poles on a trip to Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego. (These poles are sold under the REI brand as Peak UL Trekking and Peak UL Compact Trekking.) I used the two-section Komperdell Carbon Tour Duolock poles and my wife the three-section Komperdell C3 Duolock Women's poles. These sectional poles are carbon fiber with single pole weights under 6 ounces (170 g). Needless to say, they have generated a lot of interest!
