    I bought these poles to help me on vacation. They were perfect! I had injured my right knee in May.
    After consulting with my Ortho Surgeon he confirmed that it was bone on bone due to Osteo Arthritis.
    I knew I would want to be walking a lot, and had a good friend tell me how much the trekking poles that he bought
    had helped him before knee surgery. I bought the poles to insure I could handle rougher terrain, and keep going.
    These were perfect! I can not guarantee that everyone will enjoy the benefits that I got from these, however I would highly recommend a pair of these or other trekking poles, to help anyone walk longer, stronger, and easier if you have any knee problems. These made my long 3-5 mile hikes on rough terrain possible. Really helped on the down hills when I was having the most pain. Get yourself a pair. They will help you get through the long rough trails.

    I bought these for a hiking trip I was planning. I had them less than a week when I took them on a 3 day, 20 mile trip. They functioned well out of the box. The rubber or metal tips both gripped well on the rocky trail. The poles adjusted well (I err'd on the side of not tight enough since others had complained of overtightening). Even so, I put substantial weight on them bending down to filter water and standing back up with no slippage.

    The only thing I would consider a downside is that the grips are rubber instead of cork. This wasn't a big deal until it got hot on the first day and my hands started to slip/slide on the grips. On day 2 it rained for most of the day which created a similar problem.

    Since we weren't interested in buying expensive trekking poles for the casual hikers in the household, we bought 3 pairs of these for a recent 3 day hiking trip. They worked well, though one strap came off (1 out of 6); since my son doesn't like using the straps anyways, my daughter simply traded her defective one with him. All things considered, they worked quite well and I'm glad we had them with us. They provided nice stabilization on creek crossings, as well as making steep uphills and downhills much more manageable. There are a few features on my husband's nicer Leki poles (e.g. differently designed "head" that allows more variations in grip) that these don't have, but I don't think a casual or beginner hiker would really notice the trade off with such a great price point.

    I had purchased the poles for trekking in Australia and New Zealand. I'm leaving next Tuesday and won't be back for a few weeks. I'll let you know more upon my return.

    Good sturdy poles but the heavy rubber handles gives them some heft.
