- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This beacon is the best on the market. I used it in an Avy course and it had a longer range than any of the other beacons that were being used in a distance test. It also picked up a signal quicker when doing searches. I feel confident and safe having this beacon on me in the backcountry. I would recommend it to anyone.
Max performance for the buck, period!

This is a new product for 2018-2019, yes Arva launches a new beacon about every 2 years versus the 3-7 year average of other manufacturers. Because of this there is less reviews for the product, but don't let yourself be fooled. The Neo+ is the upgraded version of the "Backcountry Magazine Editors Choice 2014" winning Neo. The Neo has proven itself as fast, accurate, and is basically everything you need in a beacon, nothing else.. The Plus version improved with a huge 70M search range, and motion sensor for the auto revert. Otherwise it keeps same standard features of group check, U-turn indicator, digital interference management software, and of course confident real multi-victim marking. As of this year there is only two beacons with this huge range, the other is $500, getting an early jump on the search, as well as a confident signal while tracking in are keys to getting to getting to a victim quickly. This is a great tool and reliable for when you practice or if ever needed in a real rescue.
