You're as sure-footed as a mountain goat on rocky trails when youve got the Komperdell Womens Compact Titanal Trekking Poles to lend a hand. These lightweight, telescoping hiking poles maximize your stability and efficiency on the trail and reduce the load on your knees on descents.

The Komperdell Trail Lite Compact Titanal Hiking Poles are the light and compact hiking poles. The Trail Light Compact is specifically designed for heights up to 5'11" and smaller hands.
According to the gear testers at Backpacker Magazine, the Trail Lites "deliver on all fronts -- comfortable grip, stable bite, and secure twist lock."
• "Why carry a pole built for 200-pound guys when you weigh 130? Our smaller testers like these telescoping poles for their slim foam grips, feathery swing weight, and shorter extended length (good for hikers up to 6 feet)." - Backpacker Magazine 2005 Gear Guide
• "These featherweight poles are perfect for small hands and small loads, thanks to slimmed-down, gram-shaving handles and thin aluminum shafts. After a multi-peak, 18-mile day hike in the White Mountains, our tester says the Trail Lites deliver on all fronts -- comfortable grip, stable bite, and secure twist lock." - Backpacker Magazine 2004 Gear Guide
