Canes & Walking Sticks
If you regularly experience vertigo, then a walking cane comes in handy. The wooden irish walking sticks are beautifully made, but for convenient travel I prefer the folding walking canes. TSA is legally obligated to allow your cane on an airplane, and canes make excellent defensive weapons should the need arise. Full sized walking sticks make great hiking tools and can make a hike much easier on the knees. You want a hiking walking stick to be about 8 inches taller than your elbow when your arms are at your side.
