If you are planning on taking on some challenging terrain, particularly over several days, then include waking poles as part of your essential kit. Poles reduce stress on the lower body, taking the weight off the off the knees and lower back, reducing wear and tear on the joints. You will definitely notice a difference if you are wearing a heavy backpack too. Poles also help you to walk more upright, enabling more oxygen to enter the lungs, so more breath for getting up those horrible, steep inclines.
These well-priced poles are perfect for beginners looking for quality but also entry-level walking poles. Komperdell has constructed these Wild Rambler poles with sturdy aluminium sections using the Twist Lock adjustment system to alter the length of the poles when walking up and downhill easily. They have a comfortable rubber grip suited to both men and women's hands with a soft, adjustable wrist strap. The Wild Rambler has a steel tip with a Trekking basket to stop you sinking into the wet mud and soft grass, folding down to 64cm when not in use.
