make your own, get a digital thermometer and slope meter and buy the rest on your own, way cheaper!

I agree. It is cheaper to make your own. It can be a pain to find some of the stuff. If you are not worried about cost, go for a pre done one. All are pretty comparable. You will find that once you get one and use it, you will replace things in it that you don't like anyway. Digital thermometers are the ticket. Much faster than dial versions. I think a good magnifier is key as well. The tough part is protecting a good one in your pack. It sucks to spend the cash for a good one, only to find it in pieces after a digger or some misplaced gear.
