Default PLB Christmas Gift Help.

My brother hunts by himself all the time in the Adirondack Mountains. He Canoes to hunting grounds, parks his canoe and hunts on his own.

I was thinking a PLB would be a good idea. Plus he can use it when we salmon fish Lake Ontario. But hunting would be the #1 use and boating a secondary luxury.

Can anyone give me a little advice?

I have another brother that has the SPOT and hes not entirely thrilled so I'm looking at something other than the SPOT.

Thanks in advance

I scuba dive a long distance offshore and recently did a lot of digging to decide on a PLB. I went with the McMurdo Fastfind. You can find it for around $200, and it is waterproof. If you do by chance dive, you'll need a canister for it since it is only waterproof to 30 feet. Nice, solid device. Includes a strobe.
