used one for fifteen years and loved it, even after I made a major chip and scratch in the handle. Finally left it somewhere and hope the new one will last fifteen years, also.

NOT what I wanted--led to believe it was telescoping, not a folded, cumbersome lump of FOUR pieces

It is surprising how solid this cane feels when it breaks down into the sections. It is especially valuable when I am at the movies or a restaurant or on a bus. It makes sure that I will not be poking someone or leave it laying on the ground as a trip hazard.

Been buying folding travel canes from Magellan's for years for my own personal, daily use. Never made sense to me why no matter what color cane I bought that the handel was always brown. Received a new black cane a few weeks ago and was not only pleased that the handel was also black, but that the black finis was not shinny, but satin. The simple changes make the folding travel can appear very classy, not as if you'd bought it off the shelf at some discount store.

I love this cane. My husband sometimes has difficulty walking, but didn't want to buy yet another cane on a recent trip. I bought him this and put it in my suitcase. It takes up very little room, and yet it is very sturdy. He is tall, and we were able to adjust it to fit his 6'3 1/2" frame. A very useful item...

Cane is strong and very practical. Great for traveling on a plane, just fold it up and put it into the seat pocket. Tends to rattle a little bit when using.

I am 77 years old, 6'6" and weigh 240 pounds. I'm too young and active as a lawyer and physically to want to be known as an old man with a cane. Yet I need one sometimes due to leg pain from circulatory problems inherited from both parents. The cane is long and strong enough for my size, and small and light enough to hide in my briefcase.

I have purchased four of the canes over the last fifteen years and am extremely satisfied with them. They're sturdy, but folld up when I'm on an airplane. Used to keep them around in case I needed them, but I use them 100% of the time now.

I have been using a cane every day for ten years and this is the only type I have ever owned. I use it constantly and have broken it down literally hundreds of times.

This folding cane is great for travel; folds easily to fit into a backpack or large purse. Firm and steady when in use. I love it

Excellent product for the price. It was purchased for someone else and when they showed it to me I was impressed by the quality and ease of use. I highly recommend this folding cane. Thank you, Sharon

Ever since I developed a balance problem I have had to use a cane. This one is perfect. I travel a lot and after boarding the plane like being able to fold it up and put it in my backpack.

I bought this for an upcoming trip and have not had a chance to try it yet, but it was exactly what I was expecting and is quite compact. I also thought the price was fair.

My husband uses a cane and this is the second one we've ordered from you. His first one was left someplace, so I immediately set about ordering him another. He has other canes, but this is his favorite. It's perfect to take apart when traveling on a plane instead of dealing with a cane that's sticking out in an aisle.

I have carried one of these for years after a foot break abroad. It is sturdy, easy to fold and unfold, lightweight, takes little space, and having it offers the security of assistance whenever needed. Shopping for a cane *after* the break or sprain is NOT fun and not a way to spend a vacation (plus, more than likely you'd be stuck having to purchase the single-pole style which is cumbersome)! This product is worth every penny!!!

I have just returned from a trip to Ethiopia. The folding cane was a God-send! It is well designed and provides excellent support. The cane really helped with my activities on the trip, especially having some stability on uneven surfaces which, with my knee injury, are a problem. The ability to easily fold the cane when not in use is particularly helpful.

My husband was so pleased with the folding travel cane, especially the fact that he could adjust its height. The little strap is handy for hanging the cane. A few months ago he had to use a regular cane on a flight and it was awkward.

CANE IS LIGHT WEIGHT YET STURDY. I HAVE TWO...ONE FOR EACH CAR. YOU CAN USE IT WITH BOTH HANDS WHICH IS A PLUS.

folds easily for packing yet sturdy for walking.

As someone who can unexpectedly develop walking problems, I find it useful to have a cane to take along on trips "just in case." This cane is ideal. It's quite compact when folded, assembles into cane mode in a jiffy, and is reliable and sturdy in use. A real value for the price!

We purchased the cane for my wife, she recently had minor surgery on both knees. With only about six weeks from surgery on the second knee until our trip to China we were concerned if she would be up for all the walking we antiapiated. It was a good choice. However, the slip joints seem to be loose and the cane has a wobble at the joints. Nothing to prevent further use, but I'm not sure how much longer it will hold up. Because of all the walking , we used a wheel chair for three days.
