Re: mcmurdo
I plan on buying the 210 tonight. I was given $250 to purchase a PLB, so it fits perfectly. I haven't checked into the others as I'd prefer to keep my cost down. I'd say I'd po...

Re: Re: Re: Spot 2 vs. McMurdo Fast Find
I don't like the idea of sending "OK" messages. As people have said, whoever is tracking you would come to expect them. And then if your device breaks or you fail to send one, every...

Spot 2 vs. McMurdo Fast Find

Re: re: sock layering

Montbell Thermawrap jacket
A great jacket- my XL weighs in at just over 10 oz. with its stuff sack. Very simple, functional design- perfect for 3 seasons in the Sierras when combined with a base layer and/or shell system.
