I think in many circumstances, a smaller PLB would be useful, but the size is some thing I am considering carefully. As I sail most of the year round, I know quite well how useless my fingers become after being out in sub zero conditions for a few hours.
In the circumstances that transmitterdan talks about, then a small PLB will prove to very useful.
