Rated 1 out of 5 by WellfleetLLBeanFan doesn't fit in my carryon LLBean luggage
I was very disappointed and sent the 2 walking sticks back as they did not fit in our LLBean carry on suitcases. They were only too long by a few inches, so maybe the technology is there to make them fold up more.

I bought this because I needed a hiking pole that I could put in a suitcase. The stick I use at home won't collapse. This staff is wonderful; comfortable in my hand and it has not collapsed on me. When you tighten it, it stays tight.

I wanted a "hiking cane" (for want of a better term} and this is it. Hiking staffs have vertical handgrips and they are fine in uneven, rough terrain. But for casual hikes and walks this horizontal grip is much more comfortable and the cane, over-all, is much more versatile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Catthefiddler Lightweight but strong.
This trekking pole can telescope to be carried inside a pack or attached to the outside. It's so light one might think it would bend under the stress of downhill use. I like the fact that I can shorten its length when going uphill and lengthen it when planting it for downhill support. The cork handle is very comfortable; your hand fits perfectly. Be sure you tighten in before use.

This is the third rambler I have owned. It is sturdier than the others, but lacks the spring action of the others that I found very comforting. My only complaint is that there should be spring action to soften the Use on pavement.

I purchased this as a gift and the person thought it looked more like a cane than a walking stick - he did not want it, so I am returning it.

This is the best trecking pole for me. It is extremely well made, locks in multiple positions securely and is incredibly light weight. Compared to others I have tried, it simply cannot be beat for quality and price.

A TREKKING STAFF, NOT A CANE!. Am I vain? Perhaps a little. As the proud owner of (3) such staffs, it is highly recommended and commented on by friends. #1 was a birthday gift while able to do a lot of hiking 3 years ago prior to hip problems. #2 & #3 were gifts when hips made walking/hiking more difficult and to be sure I always had one on hand. So: one in each car and one in the house. Need I say more?
P.S. Hips have been replaced and all are used as needed for balance.

Just because you might need a little help walking doesn't mean you need to look like an old lady. I love this trekking stick even if rambling for me is a hike around the block. It is so lightweight you hardly know you are holding it. It adjusts very easily and the handle helps distributes your weight so your hand doesn't cramp. Because it can easily be reduced in length, it fits in your carry on bag when you travel. This is a great example of a practical, stylish, reasonably priced Bean product.

I am recently handicapped and use a quad cane. I was looking for something to help me get back into nature and the outdoors. I purchased this cane to use in conjunction with my quad cane as balance is a problem for me. So far I have been "trekking" all around my yard with relative ease. I am now eagerly looking forward to my next camping trip.
