Rated 5 out of 5áby physsec great walking stick
I bought this as a gift after seeing it in use by my daughter who has MS. She used it on a walking vacation for balance and really liked it. The fact that it's lightweight, has a strap and is adjustable made it worth waiting for - 2 months! - to give as a gift to my brother who hikes everyday in winter.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ColoradoRiverRat Rambler Trekking Staff
I am a 65 year old man, around 200 lbs. and 5?-8? tall. I haven?t been using hiking poles at all and thought I would try the single staff instead of the two poles. I am glad I bought this type because of the type of handle. I think it is the perfect handle for going down rough trails. The handle and staff is sturdy and allows me to direct the pressure straight down to the tip giving an increase in security stepping on uneven terrain. I feel safe putting weight on it and I feel confident in the grip that the carbide point makes. I find it makes hiking easier and seems to be reducing knee strain, especially going down hill. I would recommend this stick to my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5áby FlexibleFlyer12 Rambler Trekking Staff
My dad is 85, a skier for at least 60 years, skied most weekdays in retirement until age 80. The trekking staff is basically a ski pole with a more comfortable grip. The rubber tip allows allows more traction and stability. He can walk more upright and doesn't feel like it's a "cane". The basket completes the look. It's been a great help to him and allows for more graceful aging....!

Rated 5 out of 5áby alhgrandma practical item, reasonable priced
LL Bean always comes to mind when I think of practical, reasonable priced, sturdy, good quality products. So years ago when we're traveling to various national parks, and ice field in the Canadian Rockies, I bought two of them, and used them. When this past September, one finally broke while we were in Glacier Natl Park, I called and was told that there is a newly designed one. I ordered the new design, returned the broken one, and hope to get credited. Who wouldn't trust products from L L Bean?

Rated 5 out of 5áby slashsplat MUCH improved over old model
Locks well with cam-lever, they eliminated the stupid spring shock absorber that broke on the first one we had. Very solid feeling. Highly recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Sailtrueblue Good stick with some problems
I love the feel of this walking stick however after 3 weeks, the carbide tip cut through the rubber tip cover. Once that happens, the steel tip slides too easily on pavement/stone. It could also mar a wood surface such as a deck.
This should've been anticipated and a liner or other feature added to protect the rubber from the carbide. If I can find another tip, I'll modify it myself.

This is a gift and I think it will be just right. It offers a lot of adjustability in length and seems very sturdy. It's made in Austria.

Rated 5 out of 5áby teacherpersonwi Wonderful Purchase
I purchased this walking stick for our three week trip to Peru earlier this year. The Rambler was a wonderful addition to our outdoor gear. We did a lot of walking on rough, uneven surfaces, climbing through various ruins in the Sacred Valley, even the steady ascent to the Sun Gate at Machu Picchu, and the Rambler helped me to accomplish all of these things. My right knee gives me problems, but with the help of this walking stick, my entire adventure was accomplished, and I felt safe and secure whenever I used the Rambler. Plus, it fit perfectly in my suitcase. I would definitely recommend it to others; in fact, another woman on our trip thought it was the best walking stick she had seen or tried. I know I shall continue to get a lot of use out of it; in fact, I used it yesterday to trek around the dog park on slippery, snow- packed trails.
