Re: Hiking Poles? 
Look for hiking poles that's got grips made of cork and rubber blends. They are quite expensive, but they are more durable than the plastic ones. They are also more comfortable and less prone to you slipping your grip. Plastic ones can eventually tend to be slippery and over time, when they get worn, it can even cut you.


Grips are made from cork and rubber blends (the best, but most expensive), which provide comfort and insulation value, polyurethane (also a good, fairly warm grip, but can get clammy when cold) or polyethylene, a plastic (which is durable, but can cause hand-chafing if worn or cut).
