Brazos™ Twisted Hickory Backpacker Wood Walking Stick

Thanks to its legendary strength, flexibility, and versatility, sticks made from hickory are among our bestselling products. Hickory is a wood of choice for tool handles, drum sticks, clubs-just about anything that needs to be strong. Naturally, hickory makes for a great walking stick! With the Twisted Hickory Backpacker we've taken our venerable Backpacker design and have made it out of hickory. The combination is a proven design coupled with a bestselling wood, a surefire hit! So whether you're planning a rigorous trek across mountainous terrain or a leisurely stroll through lazy neighborhood pathways, the Hickory Backpacker is a stick you can count on to last for years to come. All of our hickory is meticulously chosen, cut, sanded, and prepared by our own craftsmen. Each piece is finished with a protective clear coat lacquer; the final product is a handcrafted beauty that's as functional as it is ornamental. Like all of our finely crafted walking sticks and canes, the Twisted Hickory Backpacker Walking Stick is made in the USA by our skilled craftsmen using the highest quality hickory wood and time-tested methods.

Unlike sterile, lifeless metal canes and poles, Brazos walking canes offer natural appeal because they are made from real wood. You can see the fine detail and beauty of the actual tree when you look at one. Each cane is a work of art. Plus, because they are solid wood, there are no moving parts to become unstable. Brazos Walking Sticks is family operated and located in the beautiful Brazos River Valley of Central Texas. Each walking stick is handcrafted by skilled local craftsmen.

To be sure, determining the right size walking stick or can be a subjective art form. What feels right for one person may feel horrible for another. However, with almost two decades of experience in making handcrafted, wooden walking sticks and canes, you can be sure that we have some opinions on the matter!

Walking Sticks

  • For small children and shorter adults, we generally recommend a 41-inch stick.
  • For people who are shorter than 5’4″, we recommend a 48-inch stick.
  • For people who are between 5’4″ and 5’11”, we recommend a 55-inch stick.
  • For adults over 5’11”, we recommend a 58-inch stick.

Walking Canes

  • For people who are shorter than 5’4″, we recommend a our lighter 34-inch canes
  • For people who are between 5’4″ and 6’, we recommend our standard 37-inch canes as the best starting point.
  • For adults over 6’, we offer 40-inch canes.

Cane sizing is best achieved by standing up nice and straight, relaxing your arm naturally to the side, and having someone measure the distance from your wrist to the floor.

Again, let me reiterate, the sizing recommendations listed above are only suggestions. For people needing step-by-step support, it’s best to consult your doctor or another medical professional about your exact sizing needs.

    Absolutely beautiful!

    Posted by Susan Handsom on 9th Nov 2019

    The trails in my area have a lot of steep ups and downs so I wanted something sturdy and I'm done with trying to find a stick on the ground. I will be the envy of other hikers when they see this! Shipping was fast and the hiking sticks arrived in perfect condition.

    high quality

    This is a well built solid walking stick. I bought this after I broke my cheap walking stick while being attacked by a dog. I don't think this stick is going to break so easily in my time of need. I also bought one for my mom for her protection.

    Really, really nice quality

    Really, really nice quality....there is no reason that my great grandkids won't be using this cane. However my 58" stick is only 57 5/8"....I guess that is close enough for hand made in Texas.
