The Lafuma Hiking Accessory Helps Bear Weight and Light the Way

 - Jan 11, 2013
With great consideration for the priorities of remote backpackers, the Lafuma Hiking Accessory kills two birds with one stone. When everything you want to take with you has to be borne by your own body, a dual-function device is a valuable thing.

Designer Diacre Nicolas developed this lightweight walking stick with a retractable pole. It's sturdy with an ergonomic grip, allowing you to comfortably trek through forests and over rocks with a good amount of load-bearing assistance.

The bulk of the handle serves a second function that would be much appreciated to the user who's used to roughing it. Solar cells on the tip of the Lafuma Hiking Accessory convert energy to power a built-in LED flashlight.
