Leki's Cressida Trekking Poles are a great women specific pole. As with all Leki poles they are well designed and well made. The Speed Lock2 allow the poles to extend or retract quickly and easily so you can stow them when you're not walking. The locks are adjustable and durable and have never given me any problems while using them in even the coldest conditions.
The cork handles are a great feature as they soak up a lot of sweat on those harder treks and are much more durable than most people expect. They are comfortable and are ergonomically shaped to make life easier on longer days. These are designed specifically for women so the grip is smaller and more compact to suit women's hand more.
