In-use Test:

In my experience, there are only two types of walker - those who use walking poles and those who haven't tried walking with poles yet. I had my 'Damascean' moment a few years ago and since then I always walk with at least one. I find it just helps to give a little extra stability and confidence ... and if I need two hands I can compress the pole and attach it to my back-pack via the ice-axe loops.

The Out There! Antishock Trekking pole hand grip is comfortable but the strap did not have enough adjustment to allow for my heavy duty winter gloves. The pole compressed down to 70 cm in length for easy stowage when I needed both hands for some light scrambling. The anti-shock system worked well - although it's not possible to turn it off. The solid basket worked fine in mud and the overall 'grip' on this terrain was fine. The walking pole tip is aluminium.

Buying Advice:

You cannot turn the anti-shock system off for uphill walking and the tip is only aluminium so may not be the most durable - but at this price the Out There! Antishock Trekking pole offers excellent value and is a good entry level pole for Spring, Summer and Autumn walking.

• I bought a couple of Trekking Poles passing through Fort William just last week but unfortunately found the plastic sleeve on one of the lower telescopic tubes split and come off so I've had to tape it up before even having the chance to actually put the pole to use. Unless you can tell me where to have it fixed in the Netherlands? Apart from this minor flaw I think the poles are great and offer real value for money!
