Regarding employment... if I told ya, I'd have to kill ya! :wink:

My connection to Arc'Teryx is a different story. I'm curious though about your issues on the stitching on the Gamma MX pants... details please. It should be under waranty, unless you damaged them some how.

the last three pairs have been under warrenty. as nice as it is getting new things is sucks balls having to deal with it every season. Every pair i have had have had the stitching around the cuff blow in the first month, after that the crotch goes then the stiching around the belt and cargos. It doesnt make any scense to me to have exposed - semi loose stiching around the cuff. Mountain footwear usually has clasps or buckles on the upper laces which do a great job of grabbing the loose stiching. BEcause i wear the pants so much i usually dont want to part with them in the middle of the winter. with the last pair i returned them before a trip to AK in the spring. They told me there was to much wear for it to be a warrenty issue (stitching went in the first month i had them) then i was charged for washing them(which i did twice) then charged $50 for a new pair. The stitching blew before i even got to Alaska. The customer sevice was ok i didnt want to argue, i just wanted the pants back before i left. The way see it all they need to do i laminate the lower cuff or protect the stiching somehow. This doesnt seem to be a problem with the AR or LT pants which might because of the less stretching and a tighter weave fabric

Bump. Last post 2007 it's about time we talk beacons again. What are you using? What sucks? What's awesome?

I'm still using the Pulse. I've had zero complaints or issues. :thumpsup:

Note: The parent company of Deuter purchased Ortovox and I've heard some rumors about them merging the US devisions. If this actually happens, then I'll most likely be switching to the S1+.

Any feedback on the S1+ would be nice to know.

I like my Pulse, other than having to pay for software upgrades :nononno:

Still rocking the 2nd generation Tracker (not the Tracker 2). Works great for single burial, OK for multiples. A lot of my friends on the Big Sky Ski Patrol are big advocates of the Tracker 2 for lack of signal delay and good multiples function.
Just remember that a lot of the current offerings are quite similar and work really well, but it really boils down to how well YOU can use what you have. The best beacon in the world isn't going to save your pal if you haven't practiced with it a bunch. And don't forget that shoveling is the most time-consuming part of any rescue. I'm a big advocate of setting up full scenarios (or at least ones that require you to bust out the probe and shovel) a couple times a month.
