Budget Backcountry Pole
MSR DynaLock Trail

For backcountry skiers in a pinch, the DynaLock Trail is just about the most affordable adjustable pole that you can take off-piste. Understandably, they’re plagued with durability and performance issues that you wouldn’t otherwise see in a pair of better-built poles.

If you’re in need of a set of backup poles or run into an emergency where your normal set is forgotten, lost, broken, or otherwise unavailable on a trip, they’ll get the job done. MSR’s track record with lightweight and affordable gear is pretty good, and if you don’t put too much strain on these poles, they’re an acceptable replacement in a pinch.
