These are the first trekking poles I've ever owned and I am quite pleased. The locking mechanism holds them firmly in the set position, even when stumbling down a steep slope and putting more weight on them. (I'm 230). The grips feel good and the straps have that nice flat spot which allows you to rest the side of your palm in the strap. If your hike was a messy one, you can remove the lower half to clean it without hassle. They probably won't fit in your suitcase, but will fit in small car trunks. (I have a Miata) I don't have a point of reference to grade the shock-absorbtion, but I didn't receive any stiff feedback from the poles even when they landed on rocks. I'm happy.

Australia Post are working to ensure parcels are delivered as quickly and safely as possible. Australia Post have also taken extra measures to protect the health and safety of customers and their staff by reducing physical interaction.
Tracking: If your order is being sent with tracking, there are a few orders that are currently only receiving a scan event when they reach their destination state/distribution centre. The tracking tool on the Australia Post website can also provide an estimated arrival date and will give you an update if there are any additional and unforeseen delays. If your parcel appears not to be moving, please be assured that Australia Post are still working hard to get your parcel to you as quickly as they can!

During Christmas or other holiday periods including public holidays, we see couriers receiving a backlog of orders etc, and they do not deliver on weekends. Delivery times may be increased during these periods. When Express Shipping is paid for, we ship via an Express Service with no exceptions, this can either be Road or Air depending on size and weight of parcel. Once the parcel leaves our door, it is out of our control, and all tracking follow-ups should be followed through with the courier using the tracking number provided, especially if there has been a shipping delay.
