The Stikstool now has a new lighter collar. It has been redesigned and is now smaller, thinner and lighter in weight. Also, the legs are now chamfered to make inserting them into the end caps easier and faster.
The Stikstool makes a great Christmas present for family or your hiking partner. Order now to receive your gift in time for Christmas!!!

Someone commented about the weight of the Stikstool. The Stikstool weighs less than 26 ounces. A pair of lightweight trekking poles weigh about 20 ounces. Is it less weight? Yes, but can a 350 pound man sit on the trekking poles? NO. The trekking poles used to be noisy but they probably have taken the clanking out since I owned some. I personally don't like dealing with two sticks. I know some people with back pain may find them comforting. I like to be able to wipe my forehead or take a picture without dealing with a strapped on trekking pole. Just my personal preference. The Stikstool weighs less than my daughters old wooden stick she used since she was 7 years old. Someone said 26 ounces was heavy. I beg to differ. If you compare it to a 10 ounce trekking pole it is heavier, but 26 ounces is not heavy. What kind of wimp are you? Should you even be out in the wilderness? Also now you don't have to carry the 18 ounce stool in your backpack. Also to compare price, the Stikstool is $30.00. The trekking poles $70.00 and the stool $20.00 equals $90.00. Pound for pound, ounce for ounce, dollar for dollar, the Stikstool is by far the best deal in my hiking book.

There is a new hiking stick being sold on ebay. It is called the "stikstool". If you are a backpacker you need to try one. It is a hiking stick that breaks down to assemble into a tripod stool without using any tools. I always hated carrying the extra weight of a seat or chair on backpacking trips. I have broken two of the flimsy backpacking stools and never liked the metal rods poking the fabric of my backpack. This stool is very strong and sturdy. The stick is sturdy as well. It is 20 times stronger than most of the expensive sticks out there. Hats off to you Stikstool, you are a great idea that saves space and weight.
