The Oak Backpacker combination is a proven design coupled with a bestselling wood, a surefire hit! So whether you're planning a rigorous trek across mountainous terrain or a leisurely stroll through lazy neighborhood pathways, this is a stick you can count on to last for years to come.

Each piece is finished with a protective clear coat lacquer; the final product is a handcrafted beauty that's as functional as it is ornamental.
