HikingBear Trekking Poles Review

A review of HikingBear Trekking poles. http://www.sintax77.com

In addition to checking out the Hiking Bear poles I also discuss my personal experiences with finding the the right trekking poles for ones individual needs in terms of balancing price, features, quality, etc. For comparison, I compare to other poles to the HB poles, as well as go over the differences in how to use the trekking poles in terms of locking mechanisms, etc.

Amazon link for current price and full specs:  http://amzn.to/2nldAiG

Other poles seen in the video:
Suisse Gear Trekking Poles – my first budget hiking poles.
Black Diamond Ultra Mountain FL Z-poles – heavier grade poles for more rugged winter trips, mountaineering trips, etc. (no longer in production?)

Specs for the Hiking Bear Trekking Poles, as per the Manufacturer:

Carbon Fiber Shaft for reduced weight with and increased strength vs aluminum
Weight: 8.1 ounces per pole (I confirmed this on my own scale)
3 section collapsible shaft.
Collapsed length: 25.6 inches.
Maximum expanded length: 53.1 inches.
Grip: Ergonomic syncork grip made of soft EVA material with strap, waterproof and anti-slip texture.
Tip options for different terrain: Each pole comes with a pavement and a snow basket to prevent sinking in a variety of hiking terrain, especially muddy basin, snowfield or grassland.
Anti-Shock: The high quality carbon fiber material is a natural anti-shock material. It is able to strongly reduce damage from the impact force.

I wonder how they would pair up against the Foxelli’s!??

DeerSlayer 8i says:

Ok thanks sintax

pro iska says:

Yeah you deserve more subscribers quality number 1

DeerSlayer 8i says:

hey sintax. u have encouraged me to start camping and I was wondering what would you suggest for a very comfortable hamick

panzerabwerkanone says:

These look like a good deal.  I may not need them for the fairly civilized trails I hike in Georgia.  But say would they perhaps be useful if I were to suddenly realize I had left say my camera gear on top of a mountain in New Hampshire and I had to rush back to get it.  Would these poles prevent me from planting my face into the rocks?

Josh Sanders says:

They have been ordered. Thanks for the review!

Chaucer Faux says:

Nice review Syntax77. been looking for some good but affordable hiking poles, wanting to get out more and hike around my state, might consider getting me a pair of these, also i have knowledge of hiking poles you might find interesting as they bridge the price gap between 30$-120$. https://www.foxelli.com/collections/trekking-poles. i believe these would make a good set aswell.

Woden 4545 says:

And thanks for the inspiration to hike. I’ve gone on two day hikes this weekend .

steven lent says:

Hey thanks, Sintax looking forward to it. Hope the wife and dog are doing good.To the next trip✌

Tim Eubanks says:

wish you had like 2mil subs so you could quit your day job and just bring me more content. like weekly trips and such.

thanks for the review

Daniel McCormick says:

Always Excited to see you post a new Video, Can’t wait for the next 2 full trip Video’s though!
Something I thought was very cool when I learned it, is you are actually supposed to put your hand UP through the straps then put your hands down on the grips. This gives you better leverage and control with the poles. Always Great Content, Editing, and Music!!! Thanks for everything you do!

River rat says:

So You have never used it but are telling me how great they are.This is why most of the amazon reviews are useless.

Selkirk Trekker says:

What video editing software do you use?

shcmoly says:

Impressive price to weight.

Denali 96 says:

2nd 🙂 Thanks Sintax – another great review. Never heard of this brand but looks impressive.

Woden 4545 says:

Great review – thank you !

Your name here says:

just wanted to say that those long scrape marks you see are from hiking poles but MOSTLY from spikes or crampons.

JohnsHouseofFun says:

Cool. I still have a set of demo Leki poles I bought at a swap meet for 20 bucks a few years ago, but I will consider these when I need a new set.

Adam G says:

I’m a newb and will be carrying a 40 lbs pack, are poles a MUST?

NotAboutMe says:

Thanks for this review Sintax. It was right on time as I was looking into getting a set of hiking poles. Just placed my order through the link on your site. Hope it helps as much for your next trip as your videos have helped me enjoy the outdoors more!

Steven Cupples says:

Wonder about your view of the collapsible pole vs the one that folds in three parts.

Kevin Piggott says:

Excellent I have black diamond ca locks, solid and strong I keep my snow pads on the poles always. In the uk we have bogs on trails like in the Yorkshire Three Peaks ( where they filmed some of Harry Potter)

uptrail71 says:

We just got back from the Red River Gorge. Grey”s Arch is a lot bigger than what I thought. We also found Hanson’s Point and checked out Hidden Arch.

Tyler Chapman says:

Ahh I can’t wait for the next trip video. Good review though.. two thumbs up.

OldPackMule says:

Love to hear your opinion on the Foxelli poles of similar construction and cost.

Phillip Navarre says:

to bad you didn’t put this video out a couple weeks ago i just ordered a new set of polls i got the foxelli they where around 70 but look pretty close to the same as those. good review by the way

Anthony M. says:

Hiking poles are a great way to get lots of mileage. Also I have a trekking pole tent from Gossamer Gear that I absolutely love that weighs about 19oz.

John Lord says:

If people truly go into the wilderness, then consider the outfitting of my poles.

White 50-80# test braided line, wrapped just under the handle for 50 feet, each pole. Thin, strong cordage/lashing readily available for instant use.

Silver (or fluorescent red or orange) duct tape. Roll on 25 feet of duct tape each pole. Night time light reflection and emergency recognition colors. Duct tape/lashing for instant use.

Magnetize 2 sailor’s needles (primitive compass needle). Stroke magnet from eye to tip. Red fingernail polish eye. Thread braid line through eye, and place needle UNDER duct tape down. Ready threaded braid line for immediate sewing needs.

Two 1 inch split-ring key rings. Place above the pole tip. With EXTENDED pole, unravelled braid line looped through key ring, becomes a snake grabber/holder … and if need be … wham wham wham … tastes like (SAFELY CAUGHT) chicken!

Jo-Ann Fabrics/Michael’s/Hobby Lobby etc. get four 1 inch sized tinny tinkle bells. Tie-in each tinkle bell to 8 inch braid line end. Lark’s head knot the bells onto the pole straps. Jingle bells, jingle bells, … bear bells ! (Can be removed).

Patrick Vis says:

Ok, I get that you have a real job. As a sub We need a real a new trip video, 3 place holders in a row? Joe Robinet who’s videos are a lot entertaining than yours is up to 260k subs, why?

Adventures with Frodo says:

the twist locks don’t fail from dust and dirt, you actually only showed the antisocial smechanism,
. the twist lock fail because typically nylon stage wears out. the good manufacturers will replace the piece. check out the cost cost poles.

sleepinghiker says:

Did you get a chance to use these?

Starscreamlive says:

Looks like a good pair of hiking poles. I’ve been using a pair of skiing poles for a while now. They aren’t collapsible, but they get the job done. If they ever give it on me, I might have to get a pair of these. Thanks for the review!

steven lent says:

Ok the solo trip keep hearing about it and?
