      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Leki sticks. I first saw them a few years ago in switzerland, and, on seeing people climbing up and down mountains with- in effect, an extra pair of legs I subsequently thought, wusses. and continued to plod along. Until recently walking sticks have been the preserve of the elderly and those with leg problems- however, in the light of recent reseach- using trekking poles on a hike- especially if you are carrying a heavy load, reduces the amount of stress on your knees. I forget the exact figures, but on a days walk, a pair of poles takes many tonnes of load off your knees, thus preventing large doctors fees for knee replacements in years to come. I have only recently acquired a pair of Lekis, and although they are not cheap, they are fanastic. walking speed was actually increased, and at the end of the day I was not nearly as knackered as the rest of the guys in my group. My parents have since bought a pair of poles each and went off to Austria to do some walking and found the going so much easier than normal. so what can I say- get some poles- though expensive they are, without doubt, worth every penny.
