Many canes are unwieldy to pack, so they get left at home. This cane folds to just 11 inches, so it goes anywhere (and so can you!). With this ingenious design, you can enjoy the comfort and support of a strong, full-length cane when you need it. It folds to 11 to pack, but extends (by the action of a heavy-duty elastic cable--all by itself!) into 33-37 of SOLID support. Has specially formed aluminum sections that are heat-treated for strength and durability, then anodized in black. Sculptured hardwood handle.
