The Wanderfreund is just what its name translates to, and that’s travel friend. Whether you’re going for a casual bushwalk or a ramble, the Wanderfreund will be there for you to give you the support that you need.
The tip is short and flexible and will provide plenty of grip no matter what ground you’re on, and with a secure vertical handle it’s easy to lean down on for support. This pole uses Leki’s well known speed lock system which is has a quick and easy to use lever, which will hold your desired height steady at all times.
The Wanderfreund is a great everyday walking stick that will help put a spring in your step when you’re out and about and it’ll also give you the sturdiness you’ll need on any long distance activity.
I am walking the Larapinta next year. I already have one of these poles, but I would like to hike with two. If I were to buy another of these to complete the pair, would they be suitable for such a walk? Or is there a set of poles more appropriate?
While the Wanderfreund is great for walking, it may not be best option for Larapinta due to the handle.
You might want to consider a set of poles that have an extended handle like the Black Diamond Trail Trekking Poles which you can look at here. That way when the terrain is steep, you'll still be able to reach the bottom of the handle to grip it when trekking up the trail.
Do these stick collapse for packing in suitcases?
Yes, the Wanderfreund is collapsible down to 65 cm, so it should fit most suitcases, but not carry-on baggage. There are other poles available in store (Black Diamond Z-Poles) that break down as small as 40cm if that is what you're looking for. If you need further advice just give us a call.
