This pair of carbon fiber poles is excellent. Very light-weight, fully height-adjustable, strong. A great aid in balancing yourself on rough terrain. Comes with a variety of tips for different situations, includes wrist straps as well. They collapse down to 25 inches for storage and up to 54 inches for use as a hiking staff and anywhere in between. They are small enough when collapsed that they fit easily in the storage compartment of our car. Top notch product, you need a pair for yourself!!!
