I’m not one to use trekking poles—except on steep descents to save the knees—but MSR’s new TR-3s might change that. Their Trigger Release technology makes deploying the poles a cinch—just press a button and the pole extends toward the ground and easily locks into place at any height. Lightweight and easy to use, the TR-3s stow away on a pack. Now we’ll just wait for a smaller, women’s-specific grip, thanks.
