Outdoor Gear Lab Editors's Choice Award
"The newest version of the MSR Dynalock Ascent Carbon is simple, elegant, and perfect for most users. The foam grip and rounded handle are comfortable to grasp, and the locking mechanism is easy to use and secure. The pair comes at an average weight but swings forward with the feel of a much lighter pole. It also packs down small and showed good durability in our test period, making this pole a great option for all-around use, from the trails to the boulder fields to alpine climbs and even winter backcountry arenas. This pole does it all."
