BD EXpedition 3: “The only downside is the straps are not removable.”
You can remove the straps of the BD Expedition 3 by pushing / hammering out the silver pin.

Hi Mike,
I just wanted to let you know that the link for the Atomic BCT Mountaineering SQS Poles goes to the BCT “Touring” SQS Poles (wrong item) which is not collapsible. The “Mountaineering” Poles (collapsible) are $169.95 not $139.

Aside from this mistake, great information. I just ordered the BCT Mountaineering Poles.

Mike,

One of things I am most curious about which you didn’t address in any of your reviews about the poles is the sturdiness. I am 6’3″ 240 lbs and in need of a sturdy pole for touring. I had the compactor z poles which are now broken and bent up in many places. Sturdiness is most important to me. Can you help me out with some recommendations?
