Leki poles....
They come apart when you least expect them to. The twist lock being very innefficient. With time the inner wears away and the poles wont lock either.
Go for Black Diamond Flicklock poles instead.

I use black diamonds for ski touring. Very easy to adjust and seem to be hard wearing.

I use one piece High Peak Nordic walking poles that I purchased from Lidl. Although they do not collapse, and are therefore sometimes difficult to pack into a car boot with other gear, they are very light (30% carbon material) with very comfortable velcro hand straps, a bit tight though over winter gloves. At £15.99 a pair they are good value and are available in different lengths when in stock. I have had the same pair for five years.
