Swiss Gear Hiking Pole

rated 4 of 5 stars They work well for their intended purpose! On a hiking trip to Switzerland, we were unable to bring our trekking poles because they wouldn't fit in our checked luggage. Once in the village we were staying in (Murren...GO, if you never have!), there was a shop selling many different souvenirs and some useful sporting goods items such as trekking poles. One of these was $20 so I bought it but then wondered how I'd get it back to the states. The shopkeeper cut off a length of cardboard tubing and… Full review

Mountainsmith Trekker FX MonoPod

rated 4 of 5 stars As others have found, the tip doesn't hold up well. Though I must admit it has been one of the best poles I've used in keeping the height adjustment accurately—have had no slippage in three years of use. I'm planning a long trip on some rough trails, so am planing on getting another one to be on the safe side. Also always carry an extra tip just to make sure. After three years of use this has not once slipped from the set height and the grip is just as comfortable as when I first got it. Only… Full review

Swiss Gear Hiking Pole

rated 5 of 5 stars Durability-to-price ratio is excellent. Comfortable grips with a nice overall feel. I picked up a pair of these @ Dicks about 6 years ago because at the price of $25 I felt they were at least worth a try. I've used them ever since and couldn't be happier. The locks continue to hold fine and the shock absorption qualities remain as good as when I purchased them. They have been used on extremely rocky terrain in the Adirondacks of NY, Vermont's Long Trail, NH'S White Mountains, and the Bigelow Range… Full review

REI Hiker Shocklight Staff

rated 5 of 5 stars A sturdy lightweight staff that provides plenty of support for the backpacker who wants a hand free while hiking. When my much loved Leki Makalu Tour trekking poles finally wore out after years and miles of use, I thought I might prefer a different approach when replacing them.  I decided after much consideration, to go with a hiking staff instead of trekking poles.  I so far have not regretted my decision.  My one staff, while not super light at 10 ounces, is still lighter than two trekking… Full review

Mountainsmith Trekker FX MonoPod

rated 5 of 5 stars I generally use two poles for winter hiking and snowshoeing; but for summer treks, I find one pole is sufficient, and easier to keep out of the way during scrambles. Last summer, I decided to put away the single ski pole I had used for summer, and try an actual trekking pole. I did not want to spend a lot of money, as this was going to be new—using an adjustable pole, with spring mechanism. My husband and I bought the same model...well, I am now sold, and really like the Mountainsmith Trekker… Full review

REI Hiker Shock Light Staff

rated 2.5 of 5 stars I love the hiking stick, but need different gripper for the top. My hand doesn't fit. Is there a regular gripper handle that I can replace the cork round one? Need a different top to grip. Full review

REI City and Trail Walker Shocklight

rated 5 of 5 stars My wife has been using a Shocklight staff for about 5 years, and swears by it. Lightweight, collapsible but not when it shouldn't collapse. Really good for anyone with walking issues; highly recommended. Very comfortable cork grip, stays dry, easy to clean. Easy to adjust and strong when locked. Seems to grip well on all kinds of terrain, including sidewalks and stairs. My wife has used in travel all over the U.S., Turkey, China, Egypt, and Cuba since developing back issues a few years ago that… Full review

Tracks Sherlite Staff

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I have used one of these for two years, now primarily during my work as a field biologist in Canada walking over muskeg and through forest with a lot of deadfall. The best features for my use are the no-slip locking mechanism and the removable top with camera mounting screw below. Highly recommended. Full review

Tracks Sherlock Staff

rated 5 of 5 stars I will not go backpacking without my stick. My camera tripod, my third leg when crossing streams, my front tent pole, my balance on steep ups and downs. It will fit in my pack when traveling. wWhat more can I say. thanks. Full review
