32773Re: Trekking poles vs Hand loops
- Jul 7, 2013At a crossing that seems "iffy" I'll release my waist belt, chest strap, and take off one shoulder strap. When I purchase a new set of trekking poles the first thing I do is remove the wrist straps.

> In the straps. I was hiking along on a good trail, came to the crossing and stupidly didn't take it seriously. Hands in the straps, pack waist belt on. I figure that I made every mistake in the book. Better now than on the JMT so I feel like my many training hikes are providing some benefit of experience beyond the physical conditioning.
