At 1.3oz and 16GB the Nano is perfect companion for a long distance hiker. My Nano has over 1500 songs in it and when you adjust the settings you can save a lot of battery power. I really enjoy listening to music on long hikes that some times get hard and redundant.
My Ipod Nano has got me through some very difficult times on the trails. I will use a Sangean headset at 0.5oz and also bring in a small speaker (Mi-Mini) 1.1oz. The Nano and it's sound systems are a Luxury Item but to me worth every ounce. I do not listen to music throughout the day, I will allow my self about 10-15 songs a day to better help the battery keep it's charge. "High Five"
