Backcountry Access Fatso Team Vario Ski Poles 2017-2018
There’s something undeniably satisfying about clutching a big, girthy pole—are we right? The Fatso, by Komperdell, is exactly that. And don’t be fooled by its size; it’s mind-bogglingly lightweight. Its polyurethane grip is also mega-soft, über-grippy and extends 43 centimeters down the pole, allowing backcountry tourers to choke up when traversing across the mountain. The locking adjustment system, which is built with high-density aluminum for better retention, provides for easy lengthening and shortening, too.
