PoleClinometer™ Prattle

Comments and reviews from real-life PoleClinometer users…


Great ideas can be so simple sometimes

Very simple, amazing easy to use and useful! The inventor of the PoleClinometer should get some kind of award for this. I’ve bought several for friends as well. Settles lots of backcountry disputes without getting into my pack for my compass with Inclinometer—as easy as simply holding up your ski pole!”

PoleClinometer should come on every single backcountry ski pole

Based on our comparison of the PoleClinometer in both down-slope and cross-slope readings, we trust it completely. It’s simple to use and provides accurate estimates of slope angle.”

When 0.002 ounces can save your life

The PoleClinometer is another tool in your tool kit to help you stay safe in the backcountry. It’s accurate and easy to use.”

— Chris Jensen, from a GarageGrownGear Magazine product review


“I use my PoleClinometer all the time. It’s handy because there’s no taking off gloves to find some tool in your pocket to measure the slope angle. It’s there on my pole to use quickly when I go into analysis mode on a slope where I am making a go/no go call. I hold my pole up and see how far into the Red I am then quickly take note and move on to the other things which take a longer time to determine.”

“I’ve had one on my ski pole for a year now and it’s really useful when exploring new areas to get a quick estimate of slope angle.”

Low budget, lightweight ‘clinometer

For a quick estimate with an accuracy of 5°, more with practice, you can hardly beat the price, weight, or convenience.”

— Craig Dostie, from an EarnYourTurns article
