Explore the features of trekking and walking sticks
The first thing to consider is whether you want a single or double set of poles. A single pole leaves your other hand free, while double poles will give you even, constant support. You'll want a pole that suits your arm height. Pretend you're holding a pole with your elbow at a 90 degrees angle to your body. Measure from the ground to your fist. That's how long your pole needs to be.
Additional features to consider include whether you want trekking sticks that are adjustable, can be folded away, and whether they have shock absorption. Adjustable poles will also allow you to adjust the sticks as you go up or down steep inclines. You'll want to shorten them for moving uphill and increase the height for going down hill. Ultra lightweight poles will also help you keep moving without feeling like you're dragging around a pair of weights. Some trekking and walking sticks even include a camera mount to turn them into a handy monopod.
