I cannot wait to get out hiking. I have been using these around the house with such great anticipation it is nearly killing me. There is nothing better than being outside hiking and getting lost in nature. Here in WI we are still dealing with winter-like weather and that is proving to make it difficult to get out and get hiking. I am not a lover of hiking in rain, sleet or snow, so I shall have to wait a bit longer to give these the outdoor hike test, but what I can tell from testing them around the house, as well as my children testing them too, they are definitely durable! The can adjust (as they are collapsible) to fit the user (25.5 to 53 inches in length) and have been made out of sturdy materials. The handles are formed to fit your hand and the handle is quite comfortable to hold onto. They come with a handy carrying bag and are lightweight! I love that they can be used my myself or my kids. This make getting out and going to much more fun. We are HUGE hikers and get out as much as possible, so we all may be getting a set of these wonderful hiking sticks!
