 $5 Hiking poles at Ocean State Job Lot
Ocean State Job Lot stores have an internet coupon for $5 hiking poles. No idea what the quality of these would be, but for $5, if you used them for one or trips it might be worth it.

http://oceanstatejoblot.com/coupons/

Salty - I suggest you pick up several pairs. :P

Good point! His poles look like weapons more than hiking poles. Maybe I'll be nice and pick up a pair for him...Ocean State Job Lot is right across the street..... :wink:

$#*@! That's the same poles I picked up at full price Saturday up at the Claremont store.

FWIW, that price is per pole, not per pair. Still a bargain.

Well I went across the street (this is in Danvers, MA, where I work). Only had one full-size pole left, and two that were kid-sized...or perhaps good for some of the height-challenged people on this board. :wink:

I did manage to pick up a one-liter narrow-mouth Nalgene bottle for $2.49...sweet! Those things are around $12 in the EMS or REI.

I got some poles on sale a couple years ago at Olympia Sports for 10 bucks figuring what the heck is there to lose. They broke halfway up the mountain, wouldnt stay clamed open, and couldn't be fixed so I returned then for another pair that promptly broke halfway down the next mountain. Fortunately hiking poles aren't a necessity for me but it's been a pair of problem free Black Diamond ones since then.

I love my black diamonds :)
With the kind of force I put on poles, the twist-and-lock types just don't make it ...
