      I find they make downhill stretches much easier -- especially if it is rocky and / or requires a lot of stepping down. But it does transfer the work from your legs to your arms, shoulders, and back, so if your back is fucked, they may make things worse?
      I hate having things tying my arms and hands up. I find it more useful to step correctly and have my hands as a backup.

      Down is much easier for me than up, opposite for SO. She has bad knees.

      I have tried them, they were more cumbersome than helpful for me. I am actually surprised how few I see out here. They are more prevalent in town than in the mountains.
