PRODUCT COMPOSITION & WALKTHROUGH
For around US$120-$150, you will receive a standard branded blister package with a flash card inside. There are no strap, drivers or anything else included. And just to be realistic, nothing else is required to use it properly.
The memory card is a very simple product. With a weight of only 21g and an overall thickness of three credit cards, it is amazing that they can fit so much capacity into this small package. And there is a 16Gb version available although they are hard to find.
Still, this product is remarkably robust. I would even trust it in my back pocket and I am over 200lbs. Thats some serious punishment.
