Anyone have any experience with the Goal Zero products? Considering one of their kits and was just looking for some feedback and insight.

See my write-up for our Grand Canyon trip, viewtopic.php?f=118&t=2828.

I recommend the products.

Fridge, cameras, laptop, radio, the usual stuff. Looking at the Sherpa 120 kit. The Journal just reviewed a bunch of setups but they only looked at the smaller Goal Zero kits. I need to stay away from the hard panels since packing the truck for my wife and three daughters doesn't leave a lot of leftover space on the roof. 8-)

I picked up a Boulder 150 kit at a Goal Zero special event at Costco. It's been great so far. You can get some good deals on Goal Zero kit if you can find them at a special event.

I liked the Light-A-Life light so much that I went back and bought a set of them. They can also be easily converted to red light for astronomy events as the LED bulbs use a standard Edison base (although at 12v).
