Here’s our Best Ever Review of the
5 Best Trekking Poles in 2021
(Including Michelle’s faves that she’s used for 3 years now.)
There’s nothing like being out in the fresh, mountain air, is there? Our Co-Founder Michelle found her way back to herself hiking, so you could say we are a wee bit passionate about hiking. Whether in a place that is special to you or while exploring somewhere new, trekking is up there with some of the most therapeutic things you can do.
The thing is though, as is the case with many other things in life, it’s sometimes nice to have a little support when you are trekking. No, we don’t mean another person (although, trekking with someone else is cool). What we mean is physical support.
It’s no secret that trekking, as beneficial as it is for us physically and mentally, can cause a little bit of pressure for your joints (we’re looking at you, knees). This is where trekking poles come in. Trekking poles can help to stabilize you while you are walking, especially when you frequent rugged and uneven terrain. They can provide more comfort for you, easing pressure on your feet, knees, legs, and even your back. This is because they can help you get better posture. They may even help make trekking a safer activity for you, decreasing your chances of falling and injuring yourself.
