Hiking pole

I've been having really good luck using a hiking pole (trekking pole)
in place of the more traditional cane, as a walking aid. The hiking
pole is extremely light—especially as mine are carbon fiber
(they come in pairs)—and it lets me grip it with a straight
wrist—like using a branch as a walking aid. Also it has a shock
absorber.

There are wrist straps but they bother me and I don't normally use
them.

The biggest downside is they have obtrusive advertising on them, like
much sporting equipment.
