Over the course of several years, I have developed mobility issues. I wanted something to help me get around and allow me to be able to continue my photography hobby. I researched walkers/rollators that I could use on our property. I needed an all-terrain walker/rollator that would go up and down hills, over gravel drives, and through the meadows. It needed to be light weight to pack in the car so I could go on nature hikes. The rollator took a while to arrive, and I did get impatient waiting for it. When it finally got here, it was everything that I had hoped for. My engineer husband is impressed with the design. Definitely worth the wait!
I am sorry it took a while to arrive but am so happy you love your new walker!
My husband will be using the Carbon Overland Walkler. He is really impressed with the construction quality of this walker. We plan on using it both in the house as well as paved hiking trails in northern Pennsylvania. We chose the Defender green which is a great color especially for the outdoors. Would recommend this walker to anyone looking for a quality walker.
This is so great to hear! I'm so glad your husband found a walker he likes that lets him continue to enjoy the outdoors.
The walker is stronger and I can take longer walks. Also my legs feel great I can walk a faster pass, which strengthen s the legs and back.
Hooray! I am so glad you found a walker that helps you be more active.
I bought this rollator for a trip to Maine. Due to a severely arthritic hip, I can't walk more than about a mile without hiking poles. I wanted to hike longer distances and be able to go at a moderate to fast pace. This walker worked great- path was way up Downeast by the Quoddy Light. Gravel, dirt, sand, pebbles, giant roots, wooden walkways, etc. with an incline. This walker got me over 3 miles at a time. I also use it in my grassy 4-acre yard to walk around. This provides perfect stability for me; I lean on it heavily at times with no problem. It relieves the stress on my shoulders and hands when walking long distances, which was a problem with the hiking poles. I also use it to walk around town. The built in seat is useful for short rests. Since it is so light, I can easily pack it in and out of my car, either behind the front seats or in the trunk of my small SUV. The handlebars are very easy to raise and lower. Highly recommend.
I'm so glad it worked out for you! That sounds like a great trip :)
I ordered this rollator/walker for a trip to Downeast Maine. Having been to the area before, I knew that there would be beautiful ocean view hiking trails, pebbled or dirt, with large roots and stumps. Also inclines. My arthritic hip has gotten worse recently, and I have been advised to get a hip replacement. Although I can walk about a mile with hiking poles, I knew that those hiking paths would be out of reach. So, after much online research, I ordered this rollator. It came within the promised 8 days from Denmark. (Thank you!!). I hiked paths from 2-3.5 miles with the aforementioned obstacles. The rubber tires are great, as is the seat when you need a short rest. I was concerned about the backwards handles; they were actually very comfortable. A couple people on the trails asked about this; I can walk fast with it. I am 5'6", 158 pounds, and it is the perfect size for me with the handles up to the 5th hole. Using this is less stressful on my arms/hands than the hiking poles. The design promotes correct upright posture while walking. It is very easy for me to lift into my car; it fit behind the seat as the trunk of my smallish SUV was filled with my sister's and my luggage for two weeks. I am excited that I will now be able to join my husband and German Shepherd pup on their nightly walks in the woods again, using this till I get the surgery.
I'm so glad this walker made your trip fabulous!
