The Mountainsmith Monopod/Hiking Pole / by Tracy Munson

Ok, so it's not the most exciting piece of gear in my bag, but my recent travels have sold me on the importance of having a monopod handy at all times. I'm a month and a half into a pretty severe case of tennis elbow (or "telephoto elbow", as I prefer to call it). Here's a review I wrote last summer about the Mountainsmith Trekker Fx Monopod and Trekking Pole. I really had no idea at the time how much I would end up using it. Stop taking your elbows for granted!
