For poles make sure you go with a Black Diamond pair. Expeditions, Z-Poles, or Carbon fiber 3 piece whippets (handy in the PNW). Though if you have an airbag Z-Poles are probably what you want as they are easier to stash in a way that won't puncture you bag if you have to deploy it. Kind of an important thing.
