The Komperdell Nature Stick Carbon trekking poles are based on the highly rated Komperdell Carbon Featherlight trekking poles (which are nearly identical to the Backpacking Light STIX carbon fiber trekking poles). A similar tapered carbon fiber shaft is used as well as a similarly-sized and shaped grip. However, the look is totally different.

Unlike the Carbon Featherlight, the Nature Stick Carbon hides its carbon fiber beneath a natural bamboo overlay that is strikingly beautiful. It is a work of art, showing no seams or imperfections. Despite many months of hard usage through cold winter snowshoe trips and mid-summer downpours, the bamboo has proven quite durable and I've experienced no lamination or warping issues of any kind. The graphics on the shafts are minimal and tasteful, highlighting the bamboo's natural beauty.
