Unsatisfactory life span for product
on September 28, 2013
I liked the cane, purchased through Amazon, used it for a trip overseas as a handy folding seat as well as a cane. It was a little heavy, but the strap to sling it over my shoulder was good. However, I weigh only 115#, and in just over a year of using it only occasionally, the main stem of the cane has bent. I fear it could bend further or break if I use it as a cane, and with the bent main stem, it is no longer a stable 4-legged seat. Since more traveling is on my schedule, I will now have to purchase another. I bought it in July 2012, now it's Sept. 2013 - just 14 months of service. Seems a short life-span for a cane for a light-weight woman using it only occasionally. I'll add that I specifically found the comfortable canvas seat a good point, along with that handy shoulder sling, and am disappointed at being unable to find another with these attributes. It WAS perfect for me; too bad it didn't hold up in such short service.
