Harvy Backcountry Adjustable Hiker
The Backcountry Hiker is offered by Harvy Surgical Supply, a fifth generation family owned business located in Flushing, NY and the largest manufacturer of walking canes in North America. The Hiker was designed as a hiking staff with an aluminum shaft that adjusts from 42" to 52". Hiking staffs should reach six to nine inches above your elbow when you stand with your arm by your side. The steeper the terrain you will be hiking, the further above your elbow it should be. The extra length is needed to reach the ground below you as you move down inclines. Foam grip, wood knob handle with inset compass. Rubber tip.
