Sometimes, the best of heroes come in small packages. This particular hero offers flexibility and security - complete with new hand-straps - but packs down almost to the length of a school ruler!

This is an updated version with a classic style handle and strap. It is a bit more versatile than the nordic style handle on the previous model and better suited to trekking in the mountains.

If you are on a mountainous trek, you're unlikely to want your poles in your hands all the time. You might face a tricky scramble where you just need to stow them away fast, and the shorter your poles the less likely they are to get in the way.

The lower sections fit together just like a tent pole, you then pull out the top section which tightens the internal cable and locks tight with a push button lock. The length of the pole is adjusted by sliding the handle section up and down and is secured into place with a single easy operation snap lock widget. With only one locking mechanism, it is easier to maintain.

The Compact Hiker breaks down to a stumpy 38 cm for stashing onto a daypack or even stashing into your hold luggage.

At the business end of the pole the hard tungsten tip provides great grip as well as ensuring longevity, while for more delicate terrains we provide a rubber tip protector.
