“Bivy Stick was created by our founder, Vance Cook, on the very notion of making satellite communication more accessible and giving users peace of mind when adventuring in the backcountry.” said Sus Edmundson, ACR’s Director of Sales & Marketing for 2-Way Communication. “The reduced pricing on Bivy Stick devices directly drafts off of this original premise by lowering any potential barrier to entry and putting the power of off-grid satellite communication within reach of all adventurers.”
To accompany the reduced pricing on the Bivy Stick device, Bivy & ACR Electronics unveiled revised structuring on their convenient, easy to understand data plans. New Bivy Stick users will be able to immediately access and use their device’s features with a four-month required period of the brand’s ‘Plus” or “Unlimited” plans starting at only $29.99 per month. The ‘Plus’ pricing plan offers users 60 credits per month and will continue to allow for the rollover of unused credits. At the completion of the four-month trial period, users will have the choice of continuing on their current plan, changing to the Basic plan, or suspend their service until the next time they need it. This flexibility allows users to only pay for the months they need it, or have the device ready and active in case of emergency.
SOS communication service will continue to be provided by Global Rescue, an industry leader, providing 24/7/365 medical, security, evacuation, travel risk and crisis management services to travelers around the world. Bivy members in need of help in an emergency can reach Global Rescue through their Bivy device and receive assistance or evacuation.
Bivy Stick is the perfect complement to the gear lists of backpackers, mountain bikers, hunters and fisherman, off-highway vehicle (OHV) users, skiers and snowboarders, kayakers and paddlers, global travelers and/or anyone accessing remote terrain.
