Adventurers insurance

This thing is super light and barely noticeable. We trek, hike and trail run and have some mountain trips coming up. All going to plan we won’t need it but it’s the piece of mind in case we end up in a worst case scenario.

Pros: Quick to arrive and great price. Really easy to set up also.

must have safety devise for hikers

I purchased this product for my family. We do a reasonable amount of Hiking and Kayaking in remote areas. We are certainly not extreme and stick to well marked tracks. My daughter has a condition that requires close monitoring and rapid medical attention should she be involved in an accident. This device allows her to travel, hike, ride, paddle, etc with a level of confidence that if something bad was to happen she can get help. Great devise, easy to carry and 10 years battery life with no monthly subscription fees. Highly recommend this product and Johnny Appleseed for great advice and rapid delivery.

Pros: size and weight is good and it comes in a protectice sleave that doubles as a float.

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.
