      This staff replaces one that had lasted more than twenty years. Its compact folding allows fitting in a carry-on suitcase. The camera/binocular mount under the walnut knob has been useful.

          I needed some stability for my knees. Have used other trekking poles but they won't fit my traveling luggage. Will be using it in Ireland and the UK in May/June 2012. Looking forward to many years of use.

            My Sherlock traveler staff spent all of June and July 2011 hiking the folllowing parks; Rocky Mt., Yellowstone, Glacier N.P. This staff was outstanding lightweight and compact. As a Scoutleader for the past thirty five years it is the best staff for the money. I wish I had one years ago. Please buy an extra rubber foot if you poke-around in alot of holes!

                I have drop foot and wear a brace. I use this hiking stick when I have to walk a lot especially over uneven ground. It is great. Far better than a cane. It is also very easy to take on trips since it folds.

                Tracks Staffs are without a doubt, some of the finest made and Made in the USA! They have a lifetime warranty. Pricey . . . . you get what you pay for. These are the well worth the money. I also have the Sherlock Staff (one piece) and they are absolutely awesome. I carry the compact in my backpack as a second stick or on less intense climbing hikes. I use the solid one piece for steeper climbs where I also may run into snow and ice. The rubber flex tip on the compact is nice, but it is difficult to pull off, without a nonslip glove on! [...]

                  Comments about Tracks Compact Travel Staff:

                  I have had this model for years and love it. I recently bought one for my spouse who is an amputee. He uses it on steep slopes when fishing from shore and on long hikes. It looks so much sportier than a cane and folds so easily he can leave it in the car for use anytime. The elastic wrist strap allows him to dangle the staff while doing activites where he needs to use both hands. This is the most compact model I have seen and that makes it easy to pack in any suitcase.

                      This folds up with an elastic bungee cord type thing holding it all together? What do you do when the cord breaks? Can it be replaced easily?

                        For a field repair you can tie a knot. After your trip is over. Cascade designs can restore the the cord through their repair service.
