Why We Like It

These poles pack down so small, there’s really no reason to hit the trail without them. You’ll be glad you’ve got them when you come across an unexpected section of shale or wet granite!


Combining the compactibility of a 3-section Z-Pole with the adjustability of FlickLock, the Distance FLZ is the perfect choice for long hikes, steep approaches, stream crossings—or for supporting your tarp shelter. Lightweight and easy to stow, tuck them away when the trail is mellow and deploy them with a snap when things start to get intense.

  • SlideLock technology improves ease-of-use when locking your pole
  • Improved joint support and stiffness
  • Lightweight EVA foam grip and breathable, moisture-wicking strap
  • Non-slip EVA foam mini-grip extension
  • Three-section foldable shaft with speed cone deployment and FlickLock® adjustability
  • Aluminum construction
  • Interchangeable, non-scarring rubber Tech Tips and carbide Tech Tips
  • Stopper basket with shaft catcher to secure folded sections
