    Which brand and model trekking poles would people recommend for this?

    Iím currently overweight and slowly losing it, at 100kg 221lbs. Iím planning to go down to about 85kg 188lbs but it will take a while.

    Iíd prefer not to need (wood) dowels if I can avoid it.

    Iíll appreciate the advice.

    Finally! I saw this post when it first started and have been looking ever since. I like this idea, not for sleeping off of. Although if it works... perfect. I like this for a hammock chair. I wonder if hanging one end high on a tree and the other to the trekking polls collapsed down a bit, would make for a type of 2T hammock chair....?

    First off,

    IKK you are my hero!

    Second,

    I am working an idea for a no tree solution. I have been watching this video over and over,

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiRD71IC3yE

    That guy made a double bipod solution using pvc pipes and wood! Plus he doesn't look like a light weight.

    I am actually thinking to use hospital elbow crutches. They are very strong and weigh about 250g each. They usually collapse to about 60cm long and extend to 1 meter with the plastic bits sawed off.

    What I am wondering now that I see this is, would collapsable folding trekking poles instead of telescopic poles work better?


    Most collapsable poles fold up to 35cm (easier to pack) and I would imagine not telescope down due to weak locking mechs/clips/flicks...

    Thanks in advance for insights, I am not a trekking pole expert.

    What is between the bottom pole locks? Is it to stop bowing of the poles?
