Black Folding Trekking Pole
Product Code: 4639BTrekking poles are like Marmite sandwiches, either you love them or you hate them. Many first time users are skeptical as to the usefulness of trekking poles and ask themselves whether they are just another gadget or if they will make the hiking experience more enjoyable? Initially you may find the poles get entangled in the undergrowth and that not having instant use of your hands is inconvenient.
Trekking poles are however an acquired taste. Over months of regular use, most hikers find they become a must on any hike.
Trekking poles tend to improve balance over uneven terrain and can decrease knee strain. Use trekking poles uphill to decrease the weight placed on the supporting leg. On steep gradients, plant the pole adjacent to the supporting leg. When planting the poles in this way, leg joints and lower back should feel less strained. Downhill slopes cause the most stress and strain on knees, owing to the impact of the bodyweight on the leading knee. This strain is exacerbated when the hiker is carrying a heavy pack. When hiking downhill, plant the pole adjacent to the lead leg before your foot touches the ground. This takes a little practice but should decrease the impact of your body weight on the knee.
This folding trekking pole is great value. It is black with an upright grip with wrist strap and can adjust in height from 115cm to 125cm. Trekking pole folds down to 41cm in length. The pole ends in a spike covered by a rubber ferrule for use on hard ground.

|Small Pocket Flask by Dalvey of Scotland|
For ramblers, fishermen, golfers - anyone who enjoys outdoor pursuits, the Dalvey Pocket Flask will become a comforting companion. A significant departure from the bulky bottles and sharp-cornered pewter canteens that sportsmen have hitherto been obliged to carry about, Dalvey Pocket Flasks are precision engineered (with key-hole plasma welded seams) from top-grade stainless steel, a material which will neither corrode nor taint its contents - which would be an awful pity with a 12 year old malt whisky! This flask is small, slim, lightweight and portable at 88mm (3 1/2 inches) in diameter and 67g in weight. It's whisky capacity is 75ml (2.5floz). If this is too small, there's always the standard version. The flask is available in plain chrome or chrome with brass coloured Dalvey plaque. (Make your choice of colour from the pull down menu.) Supplied in a neat gift box.

Hi Paul, What an amazing service you offer - thank you, the gate rings arrived super fast and are wonderful. I'd got a Paul Smith leather weekend bag and a few years ago the metal fastenings connecting the handles and the bag had
broken and rendered the bag unusable. I was thrilled to find your website and the brass spring gate rings match the zip on the bag and have fitted the handles brilliantly, so the bag looks better than ever now and I can use
it again !.. Thank you. Kind regards
Sue S., Cheshire
