The handles are definitely not ladylike
on 2 May 2013
My wife and I recently bought two pairs of 'Trekrite' trekking poles. I bought the plain silver ones which are fine but we ordered the Women's version for my wife, even though she wasn't keen on the colour.
When they arrived, she wished we'd ordered two pairs of the silver ones. There is no noticeable difference in the sticks apart from the handles of the Women's version which is much more clunky and too big for her to use comfortably, so I it looks like I shall end up using them and look pretty in purple.
Unless you are particularly keen on the colour, I wouldn't bother with the Women's version - stick to the regular ones, they are much nicer with handles much better suited to smaller hands.
