50 DAYS VERDICT
Helinox Passport Poles are one of the strongest and lightest poles on the market. Where other poles break, these will rarely fail. If you are a true ultralighter wanting to multi-purpose your tools, look no further than the TL125's to double as tent or tarp poles (best paired with Gossamer Gear Shelters).
Helinox TL125 walking poles are fixed-length, ultra lightweight and super-compact in size. The folding design is extremely compact for stowing - ideal for walkers who travel.
The Tension Lock (TL) mechanism secures the folding sections together. An internal cord is tensioned as upper section is extended and the single locking button holds the pole sections under tension. The button is depressed for instant tension release to fold and store.
