Hiking Poles/Sticks

Hi,
I was wondering if I can take collapsible hiking poles on carry-on. I called the airline and the representative couldn't find a reason I couldn't bring them, but I just wondered if any one actually has brought them with.

Does anyone know if I could rent poles in Chamonix, the Berner Oberland area (we're staying in Lauterbrunnen), or the Cinque Terre area? Thanks so much!

both of these threads from other fora seem to say, no, you can't, but I, personally, have no idea.

No you can't. They are counted the same as a camera tripod and must be checked.

I love our Lekis. They are spring-loaded walking sticks that come be made into two pieces. I take them apart and put then in out suitcase.
