These FOLDING COLLAPSIBLE POLES are designed to be the most durable, lightest and most easily transported available anywhere. Sterling Endurance poles take just seconds to assemble and disassemble. Each pole comes with a TUNGSTEN CARBIDE TIP, rubber tip cover and snow basket that enable you to use them on a variety of surfaces and in widely varying conditions. The shaft is made of T6 which is the STRONGEST ALLOY OF 7075 ALUMINUM. T6 has the strength of many steels, while retaining aluminum’s lightweight qualities. The surface of the alloy is created through an advanced oxidation process that protects the metal from weathering and corrosion. The EXTRA LONG EVA FOAM HANDLE provides versatility in changing terrain when switching handgrips becomes necessary. EVA foam gives it an excellent all weather soft comfortable feel while absorbing moisture from sweaty hands. HEIGHT IS ADJUSTABLE to accommodate people from 5' 4" to 6' 4" tall. The SPECIALLY MADE HAND STRAP has been widened and thickened for extra comfort. The lining breathes and wicks away sweat to make you more comfortable on long hikes.

Just returned from hiking Machu Picchu/ the Sungate Trail & the Galapagos Islands ...these poles worked without a flaw as I watched other members of my party struggle with storing poles on train trips...other collapsable poles poles from brand names malfunctioned or slowed hikers to make adjustments...the price in very competitive and the product is first class... for a 69 year old using the poles to manage hiking the boulders in the Galapagos was a ankle saver... recommend without reservation.
My favorite things about the hiking sticks are the super-compact, light-weight size. They will make it easier to pack for a trip and not add too much weight for my carry-on luggage or day-hikes. Some other great features are the extended- length, soft foam- covered handles that will make it easier when going up and down hills without changing the length of the stick. The shiny neon color is attractive. The adjustable straps are very comfortable to use.
Love these trekking poles! I bought a pair of trekking poles for my husband (6' tall) and a pair of SHORT trekking poles for me (5' tall). We trained for 9 months with these poles & then traveled with them for our 4 day Inca Trail Hike in Machu Picchu, Peru 2017. They fold down very small so they easily fit in our suitcase, as opposed to others we saw in the airports having to carry their poles on their back packs. They quickly unfold when ready to use, just a few twists and 1 height adjustment and viola, you're good to go! It really saved our knees on descents, and HUGELY helped us on our 4,000' ascent at 10,000' elevation, in the rain! My husband even shared 1 of his poles with a fellow hiker because he was struggling with his balance and did not come prepared with his own trekking poles. We also used these trekking poles in the Colorado Rockies when we went snow shoeing for the first time! And in our local California mountains we used them trekking in hard packed snow with the snow baskets included and again they worked GREAT! We're traveling with them to hike in Scotland/ Ireland/ Iceland on our next trip this year. These poles can be used in so many different hiking, trekking, walking, snow shoeing conditions, 30 min drive away or 12 hour flight away...I highly recommend this purchase! Happy Trails :-)
These are about as good as you're going get in collapsible/portable hiking poles. I would rate them about 4.5 stars, but I rounded up rather than down because I just don't think you're going to find better. They break down really small while assembling (with relative ease) to rather tall, sturdy poles. The connection points between the sections are pretty long, so even if you don't twist them tight enough they're still very sturdy and don't accidentally come apart. The additional flip lock adjustment for height is very much appreciated by me as I'm 6'3" and most of these types of hiking poles are too short for me depending on the type of climbing/hiking I'm doing (up/down hill, etc.). The tips on these are really good -- the built-in tip is excellent for ice, wet rock, etc., while the rubber tip is good for other hard surfaces, indoors, etc. I do wish they had included a Nordic Walking tip as well, but those are easy enough to find separately and the built-in tips are a standard size. The extra long grips at the top of the poles is very nice for switching between more of a hiking staff verses walking pole height.
Light weight but not as compact as poles that slide into themselves. Without the bag, these things need to be otherwise confined and when your packing for days on the trail, carrying extra bags isn't ideal. A little cumbersome screwing them together with the he tension cord. Seems like it should be faster than it is. They don't stay as tight as they should and I find myself pausing frequently to screw them back together. That would be more of an issue if they slid into themselves - at least when you fix the height adjustment, it doesn't change regardless of tightness. Nice grips, nice straps, nice height adjustment and very light.
My wife and I will be traveling through out Europe and we'll be doing a lot of walking during our time there.
I recently returned from a walking trip in Europe and found this pole to be absolutely invaluable. Just a few months prior to my trip I'd broken a foot and my physical therapist wanted me to use a cane or stick for increased stability, especially on cobblestone streets. This pole is extremely well made and is fast and easy to assemble and break down. It comes with a nice sleeve so it can be easily stored in a backpack or carry-on suitcase. It's adjustable to a range of heights and is very lightweight. An excellent product.
