Hunting & Fishing Trips

One of the many reasons that customers choose to rent a satellite phone from Outfitter Satellite is when they are preparing to go on a hunting or fishing trip, especially if the trip is going to last a few days or even weeks. While most of your hunting trips have probably gone more or less as planned, it’s always a good idea to be prepared. With the satellite phone rental program from Outfitter Satellite, you can ensure that you have access to reliable, global communication with the rental of an Iridium satellite phone. 

Backpacking Trip 

Backpacking trips can last anywhere from a few days to months and even more. If you’re planning on backpacking for any period of time and do not want to invest in purchasing a satellite phone, renting one is a great option. It will provide you with the reliable communication you need without having to spend a large portion of your budget on a satellite phone.

Natural Disaster

In the event of a natural disaster, such as a hurricane, you’ll have a limited amount of time to prepare. Often during natural disasters, cell phones cease to work for a number of reasons, and a satellite phone is necessary. With a satellite phone rental from Outfitter Satellite, we’ll even provide you with free, two-day shipping within the continental United States so that you’ll have access to reliable communication when you need it most. 

Traveling Outside of the Country

Another common reason that people rent a satellite phone is because they are traveling outside of the country. While there are a number of options when it comes to satellite phones and networks, choosing to rent an Iridium satellite phone from Outfitter satellite ensures that you’ll have reliable, global coverage no matter where you find yourself.
