Black Diamond Carbon Compactor 2019 Review by The Good Ride

The Black Diamond Carbon Compactor Pole is light and easy to fold up but it doesn’t feel like it’s made to deal with snow travel as well as some of the other poles I’ve tried.  It’s missing any grip for side hilling and the little button that triggers the quick fold tech can freeze making it hard to impossible to press when you finished your accent.
