It's stout.

I bought this to use for training hikes for a trip to Yosemite this fall. I'm glad I did. I like hiking with it. It compresses easily but stays extended when you are using it. I also like the camera mount which allows this to be used as a monopod or a pole mount for a GoPro. Great item at a great price.
