Orange makes them visible

I got this for my dedicated search and rescue gear. The orange color makes them visible which in SAR work is helpful. I only use one. The cords on my pack easily secure this length of pole. It came with only one basket - the other apparently came off the packaging clip before it was shipped or perhaps this batch only come with one. They are heavier than my other poles I use for regular hiking but very sturdy for the search and rescue task at hand and once secured for the desired length, they seem to stay. I like the cork grips.
