I’ve been using my Bivy Stick Blue for several months now but now it’s time for me to take care of the Bivy Stick Blue Out of the Box Review that I have procrastinated on for far too long. (Note: the Bivy Stick Blue has been replaced by the ACR Bivy Stick).
Out of the Box Review
The Bivystick Blue cam in a well packaged box with air bubble wrapped around an attractive blue and black box.
The contents of the box include the Bivy Stick Blue, charging/file transfer cable, GoPro mounting accessories, carabiner & strap, users guide and a sticker.
Here’s a closer look at the individual contents.
Bivy Stick Blue Compared to Other Satellite Messengers
Let’s look at how the Bivystick Blue stacks up, in size to other satellite messengers.
The Bivy Stick Blue is much smaller than SPOT X and the Garmin inReach Explorer. It is taller than all three of the smaller devices, being the SPOT Gen 3, the Somewear Global Hotspot and the Garmin inReach Mini. The Bivystick Blue may be taller than these three smaller devices but it is thinner than the Garmin inReach Mini and is nearly the same weight as all three of the other small satellite messengers.
My initial thoughts on the Bivy Stick Blue is that it is one of the lightest and smaller satellite messengers on the market. It looks simple but stylish. I’m excited to field test this Bivystick soon as I believe it will appeal to a lot of people.
