The Trek-Tech Trekpod Go pro is a heavy duty monopod that can also perform as a very compact tripod, and behaves like a treking pole when on the move. As it does more than one thing there is inevitably a compromise.
The good bits:-
1. The build quality of pole, looks very robust. All parts are metal, no plastic clamps to break! (except, see below 7) Made in China but looks good & well engineered.
2. As a monopod the pole is tall enough for use without bending over, and greatly increases stability, my Nikon D90 with 300mm lens is well within its capacity.
3. The rare earth magnet clamp works very, and is very quick to mount and dismount.
4. Our pack was called a "Pro Essentials Kit Edition" that included a free Table Top tripod with mini ball head , an Optimount clamp which allows a camera to be clamped to railings, chairs etc and a Leg Adaptor, that I cant see much use for, its a threaded cap which seems to allow you to just use the lower parts of the pole! With this pack included (shop around to make sure yours does) I think its great value for money too. It has a retail price of around half the price of the pole itself!
5. The monopod packs away neatly into a padded case, that will fit inside typical carry on flight luggage. You have to unscrew it, but it only takes a minute or so!
6. As a tripod stability indoors is good enough to use hands free and its small footprint is a huge advantage, out doors it will need tending all the time your camera is on it, but does add to the stability. Its not a substitute for a proper tripod but does enough that you will probably rarely carry a full size tripod about again, or for some, remove the need to own a tripod at all!
7. it has a lifetime guarantee
The bits that could be better:-

Verified Purchase
Trek-Pod is excellent if you suffer with camera shake, and find that using a tripod is too conspicious. With the legs open it is remarkably stable, okay you cannot walk away and leave it, but it gives that extra stability. As for using it as a walking stick I think it would have benefitted from a metal cover which would have strengthened and protected the legs. The "Earth Metal" Mag Mount is excellent, very strong, and the clip secured my DSLR superbly.I have used the table top version and found it extremely versatile for my product photography. I have yet to use the Tripod Clamp, but I'm sure I will find it useful for Macro work.

Oct 2011 Update: Weak point was as expected, and the Trekpod failed just over 12 months from purchase. Excellent idea let down by poor design. Collar cracked where the legs screwed onto the main column.

After reading all the available reviews I could find on this product I took the plunge and bought it. First I was pleasantly surprised about the extras included in the kit, including a T-Pod, a very stirdy device.

The TrekPod GO PRO is a significant lump, and not a lightweight walking pole, therefore I would not recommend it as a companion on regular ramblings when you might use your camera. However if you are on the move looking for possible photographic opportunites, for instance country churches, vernacular buildings, then it is great. Similarly as a companion at a sporting event as a crossover between mono and tri-pod.

It is not sold as or intended as a tri-pod but it is quite stable at minimum height in calm conditions.

Finally the tip is not intended for prolonged walking therefore I use a 1" rubber walking stick ferrule is used as an easily removable protection for the 3 feet.

I know that 1* reviews are generally moany and unrepresentative of the product, written on the spur of the moment and are frequently ignored. I don't want you to ignore this review though, so I want it to be as objective as possible given the experience I've had over the last week.

To give some context, I took the Trek-Pod Go Pro on a weeks trip to Morocco with me as an unobtrusive lightweight travel pod / walking pole to support my Nikon D90 whilst in towns and a few days in the High Atlas mountains. It struck me as the ideal travel product for the hobbyist photographer. I used the MagMount adapter on the camera.

As I said, this is a very badly flawed compromise for a number of products, that is far from robust and simply not up to performing any of the functions for which it is intended. It does apparently have a lifetime guarantee, which I will be planning to make use of, however on the basis that the company is going through a "corporate restructuring" and the warranty page has been taken down, I actually don't have any faith that this will be honoured. I'll reply when I have found out...

PRESENTATION
Firstly, the product is supplied disassembled in a padded travel case, which I actually felt was reasonably robust and gave me a good initial impression of the product. I know a few of the reviews suggested this case would probably need to be treated with some care, but actually I think you could probably give it a fair amount of abuse before it failed. The case has 4 differently sized pole sleeves for each pole section and a net pocket for the camera adapters, cap, etc.

PORTABILITY
The pole itself is reasonably easy to assemble, however the first problem is the fixed elements of the pole.
