The Fizan Compact 4 is similar to the standard Fizan Compact walking pole, but has 4 pole sections rather than 3. These make the Compact 4 slightly heavier than the Compact 3 - but with the added advantage of being able to collapse to a shorter lenth when not in use. Great for carrying on the side of smaller rucksacks or fitting into luggage when travelling.
The Fizan Compact design & construction has stood the test of time, and proved itself as one of the best poles on the market. Simple, light, comfortable and strong - the Fizan Compact is an excellent walking pole, trekking pole, bog-jumper, or river-crossing "Mr Stick". Don't head into the wilds without it!
No need for extraneous fancy features or useless gimmicks - this pole does the job - and definitely does it better than most.

FIZAN - world-class Italian made and designed trekking, ski, trail and nordic poles since 1947:
Fizan is still a family owned business and have been manufacturing poles in Italy (just an hour from Venice) since 1947.
They were in fact the first company to produce aluminium ski poles. While ski remains a large part of their business today they have also expanded into both trekking, trail running and nordic walking.
