I HIKED THE 780km SPANISH TRAIL...
--SEAMUS BELLAMY - Special to The Globe and Mail - Published Friday, Jun. 06, 2014
"Who would have though that the LuxuryLite Bigstik would prove to be the most valuable piece of equipment I carried with me on my journey? The lightweight, carbon fibre and aluminum walking stick helped me keep my footing as I descended mountain paths or traversed the Caminoís many steep, rocky hills or stepping-stone foot bridges over streams swollen with the spring melt. On days where the terrain was flat, or at the end of the day, breaking down the BigStik to stow it in my bag and out of the way only took seconds. This ability to stash the stick proved invaluable when hopping planes to Europe or returning home to Canada. Considering all of the stories Iíve heard of other travellers being forced to ship their walking staff or trekking poles home via courier, portability was a great perk."

The BigStik is the ideal staff for weekend walks or a PCT thruhike. The BigStik won't fail you in the middle of nowhere. LifeTime Breakage Warranty because this is not a new, unproven product; we sold the first BigStik in 2008. After seven years and several hundred thousand trail miles, all aspects of the design have been tested and proven... and the patented joints really work.
Change the grip height of your BigStik every few seconds on rocky up and down trail sections. The Slide/Lock Hand Strap uses a Prussik knot that slides easily when you push up or down where the cord encircles the staff, but grips instantly and never slips with downward pressure on the hand loop.
The anodized aluminum tip has epoxy/glass fill at the bottom that sticks on rocks better than carbide and lasts 2,000+ miles. And the wide aluminum tip does not damage tree roots and trails like those tiny pointy carbide tips. For paved roads, sidewalks and airports simply flip the BigStik upsidedown when you hit pavement to use the quiet rubber tip. All the carbon sections are hollow... airport security can see right through. Or, the BigStik becomes a long pipe to collect water from hard to reach streams or seeps. Packs down to 18" long to fit easily in your pack or suitcase.
Calorie Burn Information: Want to carry less food and not get hungry?... hike with ONE BigStik hiking pole. Want to burn more calories to lose weight?... then walk with two poles: In the Feb 19, 2013 issue at www.gizmag.com: "According to the American Nordic Walking Association walking with two poles burns more that 40 percent more calories per hour and works more muscles than normal walking." If you are a long distance hiker, then use one BigStik and, on easy trail sections, swing it horizontally in your hand for the most efficient natural stride... allowing you to carry less food weight.
