I bought a set of these for myself for hiking Walnut Creek. When my neighbor's knee started to give her issues, I bought her a set as well. She just wasn't ready for a true cane yet and needed something light and flexible that she could manage while managing her dogs. We both love how adjustable and durable these are. One may or may not have gotten run over by a large truck, if that gives you any idea. You wouldn't even know it. It does help incorporate the upper body for that added calorie burn and the handles are a lot more ergonomic than other trekking poles I've utilized.
I'm not a huge fan of trekking poles, but when I do need them, these are my favorite. I like the fliplock features which makes adjustments quick and easy when you are on the move. I also like the variety of tips and cages that you can quickly change with the elements, especially in winter when you go from snow to pavement. The handles have a great gripping function that work for both myself and for my kids. It's nice that it feels universal for all of us. Great product and solid choice.
