5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent high quality walking poles, 28 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are great walking poles. They are light, strong, and comfortable to use.

The poles have three sections. As usual with walking poles, the lower sections slide inside the upper sections to allow adjustment of the length, and for storage. They come with a fitted pair of hard metal tips, and small baskets (to stop the pole sliding in to soft ground). There is a larger pair of baskets included, and you can also buy rubber tips,if you prefer.

Most walking poles have twist grips to control the sections. These poles have clips on each section, that are easy to open with a thumb. I find this type easier to use, but it probably depends on what you are used to using. The poles are marked with heights on each section, so it is easy to set them quickly to your preferred length. The left and right poles are clearly marked with a tag, and the hand loops are strong and comfortable.

The handles are tilted forward, which is where the 'ergo' for 'ergonomic' in their name comes from. I find them comfortable to use, and I like the tilted grip. The handles are made of cork. There is a slightly spongy foam section below the grip, and I find this handy for use on very steep slopes, without changing the length of the pole. Normally, if I am going up or down a slope, I just change the the length of the upper section of pole.

I've used these for a few weeks, and have walked about thirty miles with them, on a mixture of trails, hill paths, paved roads (for short sections) and open hillside. I've found them very good so far, and worth the price, in my opinion. I do find the clicking of the hard metal tips noticeable on hard surfaces. If I was walking exclusively on this type of surface, I would probably swap them for rubber tip ends. It's not practical to do this frequently, as the tips have a very firm fit and need a bit of time and effort to change (I use a pair of pliers, although stronger people might be able to do it with their grip strength alone).

I am very happy with these poles. They are more expensive than my previous poles, but the lightness, comfortable grip and flip locks make it worth the extra cost for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy Folding Stick - ideal for keeping in a car, 28 May 2017
I bought this for my mother, who has trouble managing a stick when she's moving in and out of a car.

This wouldn't be suitable as a sole walking stick, used for many hours a day, I think, but for a spare stick it's great. I can keep it in the car, and use it when she needs it. It fold up easily, feels suprisingly rigid, and my mum feels safe using it to get around shopping centres and the like. It's a lot cheaper than some of the brands available from specialist shops, and does the job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reliable Packing Cubes, 28 May 2017
These packing cubes are great for keeping things together in a case. I also use them for storage of jumpers etc. in the winter. They are well made and their the zips hold up to repeated use. I can't compare them to other packing cubes as these are the only type I have used, but I'm happy wiht them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent head lamp, 11 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black Diamond (Sports)
This is a good quality head torch. I bought it because it has a red light option, which is useful for astronomy or other activities in which you don't want to affect your night vision. You can also turn on side LEDs, and adjust the brightness of the main beam. It's easy to use, and straightforward to adjust.It comes with a USB re-charging cable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality case, 11 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good little case. It has two pockets, both opened with a zip. The only downside is that the pockets are fairly narrow. I bought it to fit a computer power supply, and it's too small for that. It does fit a battery charger for a camera. It's good quality for the price- I should have read the measurements more carefully.

Impressive value. This set of three cases is very useful. I used the largest case for a mini-tripod and associated materials, the medium for a charging set, and the smallest for a computer mouse and handset.

The bags are well made, solid and versatile.
