Hold your hands at your side three feet up from the floor. That will be where the TOPS of the 5' Traditional stilts' uprights will end when the steps are set at the highest setting of two feet.
(1) If the stilts will be grabbed onto with the arms held straight down but the user doesn't care about where the uprights end, then there will be no problem. I think most users will not care that the uprights end around their hips or waist.
(1b) Or, if the stilts will be grabbed onto with the arms held - elbows bent, forearms straight out in front - then the three feet presents no problems at all. (In fact, that is how I always held my stilts as a kid. I could never use them by holding my hands straight down.)
(2) However, if the stilts will be grabbed onto with the arms held straight down AND the user wants the uprights to be behind her or his shoulders, then there "may" be some disappointment.
(2b) IF there will be disappointment that the uprights are short, then you might think about getting the Collapsible stilts. It's good to get this question resolved beforehand. That's why I need to bring it up with everyone ordering.
While the Collapsible stilts have much taller uprights, when the steps are set high, a taller user may still have to face four feet or less of the uprights.
Arms and hands straight down - over 7' stilts set at two feet up (in about one foot of snow). Notice that, in this case, the uprights are still long enough to be held behind her shoulders.
