It may be small, but it's tough. The ResQLink™ PLB Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is a GPS-enabled rescue beacon that's suited for outdoor adventures of all sizes (think: everything from hiking and cycling to hunting and fishing). Should you run into an unexpected situation, the ResQLink PLB will relay your location to a network of search and rescue satellites. PLBs have helped save thousands of people's lives.

Lots of opinions out there on PLBs vs satellite messenger devices, especially in the backpacking community. Many dont carry them, which I think is foolish. I bought the ResQLink for a solo trip, kept it for several reasons: 1) does not require a paid annual subscription to send an SOS message. 2) It transmits an SOS message with GPS coordinates via satellite, and in addition to that, emits a homing signal on the 121.5 MHz emergency frequency, at a power level 5 to 10 times higher than a SEND (SPOT or inReach) device. Furthermore, the PLB is much more likely than a SEND device to acquire the satellites necessary for a GPS coordinate lock. 3) The COSPAS/SARSAT network is the largest and most complete, with many thousands of people having been rescued worldwide. 4) light weight, long standby battery life, easily packable, reasonable cost. Messenger devices like the inReach can certainly do more, but also cost more and require a subscription. And when it comes down to that SOS button, a transmitting PLB is far more likely to get you rescued than a SEND device. Don't forget this.
