I've no experience with these, but the BogOut looks a useful device if only needing to make a shorter distance recovery!?

Then you have the bush winch

I smiled at this when looking through the BogOut YouTube videos :)

Not sure how that's any advantage over a normal winch? specially if you do need a longer pull or are really stuck and need to do a double line pull etc...

I think the point is the BogOut may be a useful option to consider for those who don't have or don't wish to outlay for the cost of a vehicle mounted winch and bulbar. It has the advantage of being transferrable from one vehicle to another.
I do concede a bulbar and electric winch would be nice, but personally I can't justify the cost (bull bar, winch, front suspension upgrade).
I'll make do with a hand winch, maxtrax and shovel :) and trying not to get bogged in the first place.
