Based in NZ and got one of these delivered to my door within 3 days of payment. No one in NZ can seem to achieve this so that is fantastic customer service. This is a quality product at a great price. I would have no hesitation in purchasing further items from Skippers Mate
I am very impressed with the quality of the the PLB, the price (even with the exchange rate), speed of delivery and the service provided by Peter. I have already recommended to a colleague (she too has purchased one). Thanks.
Very impressive delivery time to NZ, had it within a few days and was traceable the whole way. Good size and weight for chest pocket of outer shell, harness or the included armband if running/biking. ANZ had an ever so slightly more expensive exchange rate (completely beyond Skippers Mate's control of course) but it was still cheaper than buying in NZ. Couldn't fault the retailer or the product. Simple, effective and reliable. 5 stars!
I have rated it 5 stars. More because of the excellent response from Peter Hackett, and the speed and efficiency with which my order was dealt with. I ordered a KTI NZ Coded. Size and weight are more than acceptable. I am satisfied with the purchase. It will wit luck become the most useless piece of equipment I will ever carry, because it will be the piece of equipment I will never have a use for, perhaps? But in the event that I need to use it I believe it just might be able to enable my rescue in a timely and efficient manner. In the event that that ever happens I shall be able to provide a more satisfactory review.
Peter Hackett! May you be able to continue to provide your excellent service to all for many a long year to come.
I did some comparisons with the other no1 selling brand and found the KTI had some big advantages especially around the 10 year battery life.
So I went ahead and purchased an NZ model
The shipping was excellent, i had it in 3 days
The device itself is also great, a little heavier than expected but still 30g lighter than the alternative, not too sure how i will carry it on my pushbike yet, it is quite hard and square and i figure falling on it in a crash with it in my pocket is probably going to hurt a lot, so i guess it will get mounted somewhere on my bike even though that is not what you are supposed to do.
Loved the free neoprene armband
Excellent device and great service
After looking at other plb's I decided to get the KTi because of its small size. I have come across a number of motor bike accidents and wanted a PLB that I could operate with one hand .The KTi's aerial is easy to use one handed. Peter rang me and asked if I wanted the unit nz registered .It also fits great on the center front of my belt when riding,as I feel this is the best place to reach, if one of my arms is out of action.Hopfully I have waisted my money and will never have to use it,I often travel in places with no cellphone coverage and this little compact unit is great.Thankyou Peter for your great service.

This KTI product replaces a GME410 which requires a replacement battery. The GME is larger, heavier and lacks GPS; and it would cost near as much as the price of a new KTI to have the GME refurbished.
The KTI will replace its sadly departed cousin on the front of my pack and enjoy many a scenic delight untill it or I expire. The January 2028 battery replacement date is most impressive and pleasing.
The only annoyance was being charged a few dollars more than the quoted price.

Ordered a bit late before going away on a trip but luckily, the courier van blocked my exit as I was trying to leave!
Impressed at delivery and information in the box. Did eventually register it (after that first trip!) which was easy with that info.
Although my wife & I use Live Track/Garmin to track my mountain biking rides, I often 'disappear' in various remote areas, due to lack of cell phone coverage. Now my wife can have peace of mind when I'm out riding, because I have this neat little device. The PLB is a great size, and appears to have good functionality; all at a great price!
Ordered from Christchurch, New Zealand, on a Wednesday and arrived on Friday! Stunning service. Already recommending product and supplier to friends & family.
I was impressed with the action once I had ordered, and the speed with which it hit NZ. Also, Skippers Mate really got in behind and agitated when I told them that it has gone missing in the NZ system.
But all's well now. I can't say how it goes because I haven't had to use it. It is small, not too expensive, light, has long battery life and is easy to see.
Thanks guys for providing a PLB at an affordable price. Like most I hope that I never have to use this product, but having one with me while exploring off-beat places will bring peace of mind.
The unit arrived within 3-4 days of ordering; was well packaged and came with all the instruction required for registration of the unit (simple to do on-line). The unit itself is reasonable small, light and compact; 10 year battery life a real bonus.
With the price of most PLB's being a lot higher than this one I had been wanting one for a long time but couldn't afford it. Now when I head out into the mountains the wife is a lot happier that I am carrying a PLB just in case things don't go to plan.
Small, lightweight, 10 year battery and affordable. Everything in one little package.
