Black Diamond Women's Mountain FL Trekking Pole, 110cm




I just bought these online last week and they came in the mail on Thursday.   I know I am going to love them.

Finally an adjustable Z-pole that takes a snow basket! I'm glad I waited a year to jump onto the Z-pole bandwagon.

 I got really sick of my current trekking poles sticking out of my pack and catching on brush. These Z-poles are about 1/3 the length when folded up and will not catch on anything.  These will be much better for travel by bus too.

I got the "mountain" version of these and they came with regular baskets and snow baskets.

This is what Black Diamond says about them:


  • Durable aluminum construction, Z-Pole technology make the Ultra Mountain FL a versatile 4-season workhorse, up to 20 cm of FlickLock Pro adjustability
  • 100% aluminum construction; 3-section Z-Pole folding design with speed cone deployment and 20 cm of FlickLock Pro adjustability
  • Lightweight Mountain Series EVA foam grip with breathable, moisture-wicking strap
  • Non-slip foam mini-grip extension for secure choke ups Flex Tech Tips with carbide installed, rubber tips included
  • 60 mm Trekking Baskets and Compactor Powder Baskets included

Neat, what are you using to process your video to stabilize them? I was trying to make one of those crazy homemade camera stabilizers for doing videos while I hike but that got too crazy. You know, just another awkward thing to pack along.

I'm thinking the rendering stabilizer stuff you are using might be a way better way to go!
