Will replace with a laser flare, upgraded radio situation and possibly a PLB.
If you could arrange carriage I'd sell you mine cheap... couple of seasons left in them I think.
Exactly my thoughts for hand held, rockets are ok but short lived I have heard they will ignor the odd flare as there's so many hoxes so at least three needed with what 9-12 min burn time.
PLB,DSC, laser flare, strobe & mirror for sun light for me
