L.L.Bean Hikelite 4-Season Poles is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hikelite Poles are great! I ordered these poles to be sent to my son's house in another state when I planned to visit there and knew I could not take the poles I already have at my house on the plane. The mechanism on the old poles to lengthen the two adjustable pole sections never tightened properly and would always loosen periodically as I walked (I had 3 sets over time - one set I sent back and had replaced when they stripped completely). The new poles have a different, better tightening mechanism, tighten perfectly and do not loosen. These are so much better than the old poles that I'm thinking or ordering another pair for my house when I get home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Walking again! I love these! I’m in my 60’s, overweight, with arthritis and balance issues. I no longer dared walk my dog for fear of falling. Needing exercise and looking for help, I gave these a try. They provide good support and security without being heavy or bulky. I got the rubber tips so used them last fall on cement and removed the them over the winter which got pretty icy here. I didn’t slip even tho’ my dog did! And the adjustable height is perfect for me (5’5”), and for my husband (5’10”) who started using them this winter - easy to switch between us.My dog is very happy we’re walking daily again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I got these! I highly recommend these hiking poles. They are lightweight, have comfortable grips, and easy to store/carry. I read a lot about the health benefits of using hiking poles. It is all true. I normally have some lower back and knee pain when walking for over 45 minutes or so. Using these poles was a game-changer for me. I was able to hike for close to two hours with no pain whatsoever. There are more expensive hiking poles out there but these are really good quality. They are definitely worth getting if you are want to be more comfortable and increase hiking time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mom’s Walking Poles The poles are great for Mom’s walking adventures. I highly recommend them for someone who doesn’t need a cane or walker, but would like a little assistance during theirs daily walks. They are great for a core and arm workout while walking for all ages so an older person won’t feel so “old” using the poles like they might with a cane or walker. I use them too!!! (On a trip to Germany, I noticed lots of people walking with poles. I tried it and realized how much they add to your daily walking routine)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was hoping for. I got these as a present for my husband who had been wanting hiking poles. When they arrived I tried them and wound up getting a pair for myself. As these are my first hiking poles, I have nothing to compare them with but based on my own use I think they're great. They're super lightweight but very sturdy and adjust easily . I'm 5'4" and my husband is 6' and they adjust perfectly for both of us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy needs instructions I purchased these walking poles for help with balance as I walk. Because this is my first experience using walking sticks/poles, I was looking for instructions on how to adjust them for my height and comfort. No instructions in the package for the circles for snow(?) either. The next time I am at a LLBean store, I will bring them with me for help. Wasted time not using them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Expected I had borrowed a friends Ll bean poles. Liked how they felt, but found the hand strap was too long making it difficult to actually rest my hands on the strap. However, These have adjustable hand straps which ultimately made my decision to purchase them that much easier. Overall the poles are lightweight, easy to adjust, and very well constructed.
