Poles apart from your common hiking staff
A good hiking staff will help you conquer terrain faster, improve your balance, and make a hike easier on your joints. But does it have to be such an unwieldy pain to haul to the trail? Answer: No. Not with this high-tech trekking pole. Made of lightweight-yet-sturdy aluminum, it measures 50" long assembled, but collapses down to just 10". Assembles in seconds, with internal triple shock cord that pulls the segments together with a flick of the wrist. Carbide tip gives maximum traction on all terrain, and comes with a high-grip rubber foot cover for low-impact hiking trails. Comfortable cork handle has a built-in compass on the tip, so you always have the proper heading. Carrying pouch included.
