This device is 8 years old, yes you can get a newer one that is more flashy, touch screen, etc, but I have yet to see one that works just as great, even from Garmin.
Satellite acquisition is quick and strong, has great battery life. Included software does not work with a Mac, but you can download software directly from Garmin that does.

One note, Backcountry.com lists this @ $428.95, SRP: $482.13 as of this review. This device is much cheaper elsewhere.

Large single compartment no frills ultralight backpack. Weight is as listed 2lb 1oz on the 4400L. The foam back panel is removable. The hip belt isn't really anything more than a strap, not much in the way of padding. But, that's the price of it's weight. It's also made from recycled materials! I'll use this pack a lot.

I hate those pillows that are just fill. Not hard enough, tend to loose shape, sag and make you wonder why you brought it in the first place...

I like my pillows hard, so inflating this thing all the way is to my benefit. Just the right amount of fluff. Depending on how cold it is as to which side I use, Microfiber when cold and Nylon side when warmer. It stays inflated and packs down into a small ball for space saving.

I normally use a tarptent squall 2. I was looking for something a bit less drafty in higher wind conditions. This being a rather new tent on the market I thought twice about it but ended up giving it a shot.

Light, super quick to setup and take down. It's free standing but to really get the extra space out of it you need to fully stake and guy it out.

I didn't have any condensation issues and guys over 6' might want to show caution when buying if you mind the walls being a bit close to your feet and head.
