Walking poles can be really useful out in the hills. You can shoo away sheep with them, point wistfully into the distance or poke your walking buddies when they’re not going fast enough.

Also, if you have creaking knees, walking poles will ease the burden when trudging up hills and provide some stability when coming back down.

Using poles also gives your arms a good workout, which is ideal if you’re trying to whip yourself back into shape. Whatever your goals, this entry-level model of walking pole from Komperdell may be just the ticket.

The Walker Compact features a cork grip with a padded strap, and is lightweight, being made of aluminium. It packs to a pretty small size (46cm long), meaning you can stash it away easily, too.
