The Cheapest good Quality Decathlon Trekking Pole available? | Quechua Arpenaz 100 Review

Watch the full video here: https://youtu.be/eCfrrCaHZdY

In this post we are going to share with you the gear review of the Trekking Poles Arpenaz 100 from Decathlon. We just started to use the trekking poles this year and it was our first test of them in the field. We hiked more than 300kms with them and we think we are ready to share our honest review and opinion about this product. So here we are going to talk about the technical specs, durability, its benefits and drawbacks and our personal experience with them.

What is you experience with the trekking poles? What kind do you use?

In your title you ask a question rather than make a statement, which strongly implies your video won't provide any kind of answer to it. It's a cheesy way to pique interest and should be avoided if you want to be viewed seriously.

I've had no problem with cheap Cascade Mountain Tech Trekking Poles - Carbon Fiber. At one point they were $25.
now closer to 50

With gear selection you choose two: cheap, light, or high-quality. Then you hope for the best and choose again when necessary. Unless you consider Costco and Walmart "high end" equipment, you'll find it's nearly impossible to find poor gear anymore - the market is too competitive to tolerate junk very long.
