As an outlier I am also considering something like a Casio Pathfinder PRW2500-1 for a hunting/outdoors watch. Any thoughts, opinions, personal experience with any of these would be greatly appreciated.
I'd go with the hammy. I'm biased because I have a khaki mechanical that's been superb, but I also think that the Everest looks too much like an Explorer I and thus lacks in the originality department, whereas the Hamilton seems to be its own style.
