I've been using a pn-40 and I love it. It comes with tons of map software included. The small screen is the only drawback. Like he said above, check out the pn-60 when it comes out, but also th...

I'll never hike without. I did get rid of the straps though. Not to save weight, but I don't thing you need them. Like when you go up stairs, you use your arms and hands, but you have to gr...

I used a lite my fire, but cheese from mountain house caked on and formed some kind of super epoxy. I did not like the shape either.(that curved "S" shape was a pain to pack) Then used a ...

On my jam2 the shoulder straps are connected to the waist straps. If you cut them off, it would be a project in itself to attach the shoulder straps again. I might have read the question wrong though.

last minute.
1. 12 ounce bag of beef jerky (instead of 8 ounces that I packed) 2. 12 ounce coke. (for the alcohol that I packed) 3. extra lighter since I always wonder if I packed one the night before.

seam seal
I think it also looks tacky. The companies want their products to look pretty when set up and on display at the store and seam sealing looks pretty bad. (even worse when I do it)

I am not going to hype up the good points. The GG website does a good job of showing the features. It is light and well made. I will point out the flaws that could be better. First the compression s...
