Article Summary:

I am not a great believer in trekking poles for ordinary walking, but I know many people love them. People with wobbly knees find them very helpful on steep descents too. However, I am a believer in trekking poles for snow conditions. There is nothing quite like trying to cross frozen neve early in the morning in light joggers, especially when there is a long run-out below.

That means I seldom use trekking poles in Australia, except when on snowshoes, but we always take one or two when we go to Europe. The first problem is that 2-section trekking poles are generally too long to fit into my pack, so we have the problem of the dreaded airline baggage handlers. The other problem is that most 3-section trekking poles are metal, and weigh too much.
