Fenix Torchlight

Looking to buy the Fenix HL21 Headlamp. Does anyone know of a local retailer that stocks Fenix torchlights & headlamps?

Thanks much.

Re: jungle escapades

Well said, moeyhc!

Most modern wilderness adventurers carry emergency electronic gear. My old pack had:
GPS: 2 field GPS - 60C and Foretrex
Satellite phone: Thuraya
Solar power on backpack -

Re: Garmin Fenix

I bought it when it had just been launched in SG and was on offer at S$499. Good price, considering that Garmin in the US is selling for US$399 and the implied exchange rate is 1.25 against the S$.

Thanks for your input, guys.

I got it to work; still don't know what was wrong. On a brand new Sony Vaio, I restored the whole partition back to factory default, installed a map with a bundled old version of Mapsource first, then installed the latest Mapsource. It now works like a charm.

Cheers.
