Does anyone have any first hand experience with selecting walking sticks or poles that the airlines won't throw a fuss about? Specific brands or recommendations would be helpful. I'm limited to online shopping because of where I live, i.e. no nearby winter sports stores. On one trip I was on, the group leader said that "sometimes" she got through security with her poles, but other times she did not? If there are collapsible ones, are they safe? I'd hate to lean on something and have it buckle. On one trip, a lady with poles fell flat on her face with them somehow.
We always put ours in checked luggage. My husband is 6'3'' and his break down into three 18inch segments so fit nicely in small bags. REI has online ordering. Just be sure you use posted guidelines so you buy the right size.
