Sturdy, lightweight and small

I've owned 5 of these now in total and have never had a bad experience with them. Apart from the obvious small stature and light weight (especially important when hiking), they've proven themselves quite sturdy. I run a PLB hire business (hence why I've owned 5 in total) where the PLBs are sent and returned via Australia Post Express Post. They've only needed to be replaced on two occasions, once when a customer lost one and another time when the customer needed to activate the device in an emergency situation. I test them on a regular basis and the result has always been positive. I really don't have a bad word to say about them.

Pros: sturdy, lightweight, small
Cons: none

Light weight, easy carry, lone worker critical help device.

The RescueMe PLB1 is my second PLB device. I carry it as a lone operator for remote field work. Thankfully, I have not experienced an incident where I needed to activate a PLB however I can comment on the carry-ability of the devices. The previous PLB I carried was quite large and annoying to carry on my belt, particularly when getting in and out of a vehicle several times a day. I have used the RescueMe PLB1 for a couple of weeks now and am happy that due to its small size, I find it comfortable to wear most of the time. The depth of the device can be annoying at times when wearing a seat belt depending where it is positioned on my belt. A slim profile device would alleviate this issue however I understand that the dimensions may be dependant on the technology design. The RescueMe PLB1 is certainly a long way ahead of the previous device I carried. Any safety device that is unobtrusive to wear is most certainly a great benefit to lone field workers in remote areas. I am concerned about the ability of the supplied flotation case to endure regular outdoor work however time will tell. A solid leather type of belt case would be preferable for daily use on remote rural properties. Of the products currently available, I feel the RescueMe PLB1 is the preferred device for daily, unobtrusive carry.

Pros: Small dimensions. Light weight. Easy carry in provided flotation case. Simple operation.
Cons: Needs rugged case for daily carry, such as farm workers.

This PLB is small and light. Great to throw into a backpack.

Assuming that it works in an emergency, taking this PLB on any adventure is a no brainer, because it is so small and light. Even when packing light on remote trail runs, I will throw it into the first aid kit.

Pros: Small, Light.
Cons: Nothing.
