Introducing The StickPic

I came across The StickPic quite a while back on a few different blogs and since then I thought it would be a very handy piece of gear to have in my kit. However, at that time my first priority was to get a good camera. So, my wife got me a Panasonic Lumix FH20 for last Christmas, so then I had no excuse not to get it. So, I did.

The important thing to know about ordering your own StickPic is to make sure you know which poles that you will be using it with. There are 7 different StickPic models and they each fit certain name-brand poles, however, some will fit multiple brands (check the StickPic site for all the details). I have the number 2 StickPic and luckily it will fit my Leki’s as well as my Outdoor Product (Wal-Mart) poles, but also it will fit the Gossamer Gear poles, such as the LT4’s… 🙂

So, here is a little video that I did just showing it off a little. If you have any questions be sure to leave a comment and I will do my best to answer them for you. Enjoy…

About Stick

My blog is essentially a record of my hiking career. Through it, I, and others, can see how I have evolved from a heavy weight backpacker, to a smarter, more efficient, lightweight backpacker. Through the use of video, still photos, and of course writing, one can see my progression, as well as check out some of the places I hike, and not to mention some cool, lightweight gear options. For me, my blog is a journal, but for others, I hope that it is an interactive learning tool to aid them in their own progression towards lightweight backpacking.

    Hi Chad,
    Great StickPic review!
    I should know….
    I’m the kooky StickPic inventor.

    Really I am.

    Thanks for supporting a small cottage business.

      Hey Rod,

      Thanks for stopping by, and even more so for selling me such a neat little piece of gear! I am looking forward to breaking it in next weekend on a 3 day trip to the Smokies.

      Keep up the good work!

    Stick — Nice demonstration! I was one of the hikers on the PCT in 2008 to be given a StickPic & I loved it — I even used it for a few shots of my trail documentary (I don’t recommend that, though — video cameras make the whole rig rather top heavy). Gave it away in 2010 to a current year hiker, but I’ll be buying another one soon. Thanks for the video!

      Awesome, thanks for commenting. That is cool that you were one of the hikers to get one back in the beginning. Great to hear that it worked out for you too. I plan on using mine with my new camera my ever-so-loving wife got me for Christmas, which is the same camera I have been shooting my videos with. I am happy with the quality of the video/pictures and it works well with the StickPic. So, I am happy…
