Probably the most unique feature is the handle. Effectively it has two handles in one. The very top is a handle like a cane, ideal for using on descents when you want to be able support your weight gently to give you knees a rest. This part is a had plastic handle. Secondly, a regular hiking pole grip that follows the shaft of the pole, perfect for walking or hiking on flat ground to uphill. This part is an ergonomic EVA foam grip. Here's where it gets unique. The pole as a 9 LED flashlight at the end of the grip that rotates 90 degrees. Great if you are out in the dark. This pole is made out of strong light weight aluminum and is spring loaded. Combine the built in spring with the cane grip and you can see why your legs and knees will thank you after a downhill hike. The pole is adjustable to a little under two feet to over four feet.

Included with this hiking pole is grip strap. Slip your hand up through the bottom of the strap, grab the grip lightly in your fingers and you have a way to easily swing the pole as you hike. On the strap is a small compass and a thermometer. Now don't expect the compass and thermometer to be of the highest quality - think of them as there for reference. A conventional GPS will provide much better results, but this will be useful. Finally, included is a rubber tip for when you are hiking on hard surfaces, a snow disc that you can change out. The hiking pole weighs just under 11 ounces.

Get the Kaito BT409 hiking pole if you are looking for a versatile, low cost, convenient hiking pole for your hiking trips.
