I bought two pairs, one for my husband and one for myself, to bring with us on a trip to Greece. They fold easily to pack in our carry- ons or packs and are extremely light. Nonetheless, they are sturdy when assembled and have served well hiking on Mt. Olympus and down the Samaria Gorge. My husband also uses them regularly for walking sticks in cities and towns. Sadly, I am on this site looking for replacements as he lost one this afternoon.

The actual poll weight (by my scale) is 229gms/poll (or 8oz/poll). These are not the lightest polls that we own. We have some Komperdell rigid 110cm that weigh 155gms/poll and some twist lock polls that weigh 200gms/poll. I am not a fan of twist locks (they can be very hard to tighten) so I bought these for my wife. As far as comfort, the others are better, being a little better at sucking up the shock. These are stiffer but stronger.
