Default Sat. phone rental???

Going on a backcountry ATV trip in Colorado and I want to rent a satellite phone for emergencies. I will not be checking in and texting and all that jazz. I also do not need any internet or smart device sharing. It will simply be for an emergency. It appears you can rent one for @ $50 a week plus minutes. Any opinions or things I need to know. Is there any difference in manufacturers? Iridium vs. Globalstar ect. ??? Thanks!

Iridium works best when I rent one for going to Bahamas. I don't know about Colorado. Jealous of your trip though

Iridium is the only way to go for sat phone reliability.
