My search came to an end here!
Reviewed By Mark, 24 Feb 2014

I have been searching the web for the last two days reading reviews on walking sticks and trekking poles looking for something a little special and unusual and I found it in the Leki Wanderfreund. My partner has suffered a spinal stroke and as lost the use of his right leg but, with lots of determination, as now progressed from a Zimmer frame to the standard hospital walking stick and although this offers the support required it isn't the most visually stunning piece of kit. Based on Cotswolds reviews on this item, amongst others, I purchased this Leki Stick and I am delighted!...Weight for weight it is a lot lighter than the standard hospital version. Its also telescopic and ideal for plane travel etc. My partner is now using this item whilst in hospital and as part of the rehabilitation process and is delighted!...based on other reviews the response was quite simple, "If its good enough to use trekking in the Himalayas, then its good enough to use to get down to the shop to buy the papers!"

 

 

 
The best trekking pole for difficult terrain
Reviewed By Bent, 09 Dec 2013

I have used Leki wanderfreund for trekking in the Himalayas, Burma and China since I first saw them 15 years ago. They have served me perfect in all kinds of terrain. Off trail in China and on hunters trails in Burmese Himalayas. In difficult terrain the traditionel poles with skiing type handle are useless, but the handle on the wanderfreund is fantastic. You can put all your weight on it a 11000 times a day without your hand getting sore. You can position the tip exactly where you want on a rock in miliseconds. On steep descents the pole will spare your knees, and on steep ascents you can push yourself up. Do not buy the model with speed lock it will stick in deep mud, and it can easily be caught between rocks. Traditionel poles is OK on a good trail in an even area, but in this case you should not use poles - it is waste of energy. I strongly recommend Leki Wanderfreund - I prefer the antischock model but this is a matter of taste.

Ideal in place of a traditional walking stick!
Reviewed By Thomas, 21 Jun 2013

I've happily used Leki walking poles before for hiking, but when I did my back in several weeks ago (prolapsed disc) I bought one of these to help me get around town. It is the best £40 I've ever spent! The height adjusts easily, like all Leki poles, but the handle design on this one provides perfect support when walking, and is a great help when sitting down and getting up. The lanyard is especially useful, as whenever you need to free your hand, you can let the pole dangle from your wrist; and if you ever let go of the pole by accident, you won't have to bend and pick it up off the floor. The pole itself is sturdy, which gives confidence, yet light enough not to be an encumbrance; the rubber ferrule gives a firm grip on the floor. On top of all that, it stores discreetly away. I cannot imagine why anyone would use a traditional walking stick when this are available. Oh, and if you want to use it out of town, on more rugged terrain, the rubber ferrule is detachable.

 

 

 
Leki walking stick
Reviewed By margaret, 02 Dec 2012

I like the walking stick for the fact that it is light and has a rubber on the bottom to prevent slipping and it folds up small when traveling
