The High Quality Andes® Hiking/Walking Poles are great for anyone
walking around the countryside, mountains etc. They have an antishock
feature which is particularly useful when descending steep hills or to
save elbow strain. Also have removable ferrules and snow baskets. Use
the removable snow baskets which can be attached to the base of the
pole, these are designed to prevent sinkage in soft ground or the snow.
These poles are lightweight but extremely strong.
