The Not-So-Poor Man’s Sat Phone:

Thuraya’s Sat Sleeve: Pricewise this offering sits about half way between Delorme’s InReach SE ( and the Rolls Royce model, Iridium’s Extreme (  It is also substantially lighter than both (178 grams inc battery) but has to be paired with your phone – which means of course both devices have to work  though you can make an emergency call with it in stand-alone mode. However unlike the other two it does not have tracking or a SOS (PLB) function and there are areas of the globe where it does not work (New Zealand for example). Most places though, if you want a cheaper, lighter Sat Phone for most purposes it could be a good choice.
