I purchased these Hiking Trekking Poles 2-Pack Lightweight Aluminum Alpenstocks Mountaineering Anti Shock Trekking Poles for my boyfriends son who loves to hike. The hiking poles are strurdy, and well built. They feel strong under your grip. They are also remarkably lightweight, and easy to manovor. I didn't have any problems adjusting them, and I like the carrying case they come in. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.
