I picked one up. I've never been a fan of the concept of headsets (although I've never owned or tried one), so I figured this was probably a good deal to check them out.

I never thought I would get one but have seen more people using them when caching during WeekNIGHT and the hands free sure seems to come in handy and the option for the red light so you do not blind people is nice.

I thought you were referring to today's woot and didn't understand the 'hands free' part:

Hawk Scout Aqua Scooter
$99.99

Could make it easier to get those island caches. No need for the expense or trouble of hauling around a canoe. Very Happy
