Swiss Military Surplus Avalanche Poles, 2 Poles, Used is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeff B from Repurposed Historical ItemWhen I first saw these I immediately saw a set of break down shooting sticks that could be assembled for standing or broken down for 2 sets sitting. All this in their own convenient carry strap. Upon receiving them I was right. Perfect for that usage with the leather or piece of paracord wrapped a few inches down the set for stable X. As for standing, tie down 4 or 5 inches below tip, make your X in front of you and use them leaning a bit with the bottoms pressed in the ground further out in front. This gives a great height and also loads the poles for more stability. For less than $5 how can't you try it out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pete from Good qualityFairly simple item-four sturdy aluminum sections with threads and protective caps. You can use them for their intended purpose (looking for avalanche victims) or use the poles as material for making tent poles or other projects (my use).

Rated 2 out of 5 by z_28 from Incomplete !"4 Pole sections in all" - OKBut tips aren't included - so they are unusableBoth as searching tool or collector's item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JOHN from Excellent quality, but these are well used, somewhat bent (easy to straighten) and may not be complete sets. Strong, solid aluminum rod, but pretty whippy when all four poles screwed together. Should come with thread protector for end which goes through snow. Some threaded ends are brass, some are steel. Excellent leather keeper.
