I got one with the associated belt clip, and I was very unimpressed with construction quality. I have a Garmin 62st as well. Compared with the 62st, the Etrex 30 mounting rail in the back is plastic, and it had a really poor fit with the carabiner clip I also ordered. Once the two were mated, I had great difficulty in separating the two. They jammed together, and I had to pull with very considerable force to make them come apart (and yes, I was lifting the plastic tongue of the clip before pulling, of course). This is very different from my 62st, where the fit is butter smooth. I cannot see myself using the Etrex 30 day to day with such a poor fit, and I will be returning it along with the carabiner clip. Perhaps mine was an exception; I will try to buy my replacement from a brick and mortar store, so that I can try the fit before buying it.
