"As an adult with disabilities I was interested in the Upperstate pole since the beginning. I had a theory that the pole would help. But I wasn't sure. I haven't used a mobility assistance device in a long time. Well, I've had my pole for a couple weeks now and my dog and I on good weather days walk around seven miles a day. The pole helps greatly with stability on flat and uneven ground. The ability to adjust height needs on demand is an awesome ability. I can tell that I am more stable and balanced than I was before I had the pole. It's a great product and I am very grateful it was developed. It's increased my confidence and security when I am out and about with my service dog Cash. We are both very excited to have it."

"The people that built this walking stick that’s adjustable and also very sturdy did a great job nice features probably in the future I will be getting another one so I can leave it in the car you won’t be disappointed."

“I love my Upperstate pole. The ability to change its length with a quick push of a button using my thumb is a game changer. I had to get two of them and use them all the time on long walks and hikes. I cannot wait to see what Upperstate comes out with next!”

"I ordered a pair of your hiking poles a few months ago with the intention of using them to help me explore some of the socially distanced terrains around our new home in San Diego (and during a long-planned family trip to Hawaii in August). Instead, after tearing the ACL and MCL and the meniscus in my left knee in July, these sturdy poles became a godsend in lieu of crutches. They have provided stability and balance and helped me navigate two islands of Hawaii with minimal assistance. They were invaluable to me while traipsing through a rain forest, venturing to inland streams and waterfalls and (slowly) making my way to the highest point of the Mount Killueua caldera. As I await a decision on possible knee-replacement surgery, at least I have been able to remain relatively active — as planned — thanks to my decision to purchase your product."
