GizzMoVest review with Garmin eTrex 30

We've just started a review of the GizzMoVest a protection system for hand held GPS. We're using a Garmin eTrex 30 for the review as that's the only one we have that fits ish! Although the case does close shut without the GPS inside, there is a slight gap with the GPS in place.

review of Goal Zero Nomad 7 solar power unit

The Goal Zero is a useful bit a kit to have hanging off your bag while you walk. It's reasonably light and a good simple shape. It charges multiple devices taking only a couple of hours to charge up a mobile phone. We have been testing it for over a year now and it still works as if its brand new!

It has a battery pack (charged by the solar panels) that can be taken off and charged at a mains supply for a quicker charge, this is also useful as it means the battery pack can be detached and carried in your pocket as a simple electronic mains charger. Definitely recommended by the walkingontheweb team.
