Great product. Have got a second one after I managed to plop my full weight down on and bend/ruin the first one, stupid me! need a cane for stability after an accident and subsequent stroke. I used to be a hiker and backpacker who always used trekking poles. This can be used both ways... 1) Lower the height and use the horizontal, cane-like grip at the top for a typical cane feel. 2) Extend the height and use the vertical grip for a typical trekking pole feel, where one's hand and arm holds the pole at a higher spot. Of course, you can make them smaller. When fully shortened, you can put in the side pocket of a backpack if desired for some reason. Also, you can pack in a big duffel along with your backpack when flying somewhere for a backpacking trip. Getting the accessory rubber tip cover is a good idea to protect floors, but outdoors on natural terrain or ice, the metal tip serves its purpose well. I can't speak to whether the shock absorption feature really works, but I guess I do have it on. All in all, great!
