I'm not a big hiker, but I use a single pole to help me get across the expanse of very hilly, very soft, and very deep, dry sand necessary to get down to the beach. Until I saw this deal I didn't realize that two poles would be better than one. It's unclear to me what exactly is included in the box. One photo shows the poles with two clips and what appears to be baskets stored between them. The specs simply say that the box includes a "set".
In spite of my uncertainty, I'm in for one (which means two, right?). And do you know why? BECAUSE IT'S ONLY 15 DOLLARS +shipping!!! It's not that I have $15 bills to throw around, but if it improves the hiking experience and therefore the quality of life for someone, I say quit the hemmin' and hawin', get off the dime and fish or cut bait!
