GPS for Off the Bike Adventures

Sorry if this topic has been beaten to death already...I'm looking at doing some backcountry thru-hiking next season out here in CO and suspect that some of the GPS devices in use for backcountry moto adventures might serve me well on foot as well...

Can the peanut gallery make recommendations on their favorite GPS device to use in the outback?

My experience with these devices is nil, but I have plenty of time to study up, practice, etc. There are ample paper maps for the hiking I'm gonna take to, but I'd like a backup/redundancy and some sort of immediate feedback as to my progress, etc.

I was looking at a wrist GPS/HR monitor combo in the Suunto Ambit, but want to get your opinions on the matter before I drop 5 bones on a device...

Thank you!
