Amazon tells me this review just went live:
I had knee surgery last month, and have been using a walking stick to provide stability while walking during my recovery. However, at physical therapy [this week], I tried a cane. It seemed to work better.
So, I did a bunch of research on Amazon and settled on this LEKI Legend Micro Carbon Walking Pole…feeling guilty about spending so much money on it when there are such less expensive alternatives.
Boy, am I glad I did. This walking pole is amazing. It is light (carbon fiber). It is portable (i.e. it can be split into two). It is strong (I am 6’3”ish and around 245 pounds).
And I think it looks good.
I’m hoping to travel next week if my knee is up to it, and this will be a perfect companion. Big thumbs up!
P.S. Please note it is not called a “cane” (it’s a “pole”), but it sure seems to be designed to be used that way. 🙂
P.P.S. The link to the walking pole in this post will bring you to Enwild, the folks who actually sold me the product through Amazon. They appear a great business to frequent for your outdoor needs.
