    You already have the sat phone and the spot.
    Why do you feel you need the inreach as well?

    Seems like huge overkill to me

    Gizmo envy ?

    LOL like DeMonk, I think you got your bases covered. The sat phone will probably keep you in touch with getting specifics . Provided it's on your person, not attached to the handle bars of a bike at the bottom of a cliff while rider is still up top.
    Unless you just want to send lots of texts (via inReach) I don't see the value in adding another gizmo .
