This might be a vain effort, but hey, I'll give it a shot. This beacon's been used three seasons, one of which it was used very lightly. It functions perfectly and holds power like new, and the straps have absolutely no fraying or wear that I can see. There's a little cosmetic rubbing on the body from regular use over the past two seasons, but this won't affect anything unless you appreciate beautiful instructional diagrams. This would be a great starter beacon for someone looking to try out the backcountry; take the time to learn how to use it and it will serve you well. I'm looking for $120 shipped or $100 pick-up in Bozeman. PM me or post here if you have any questions!
