To find your perfect pole length, let your ark hand down. Lift your forearm until your arm is bent in a 90 angle (forearm is parallel to the floor) Clench a fist like you hold a stick. Now measure the distance between the floor and the upper side of your fist. Check the size chart to get your ideal pole. If you intend to go a lot uphill and downhill, you may consider buying poles that are easy to adjust the length.
