Tackling the backcountry is an adventure that can get dangerous pretty quickly, and although you can’t prepare for every single random event that might happen, it’s still in your best interest to be as prepared as you possibly can be. Enter the Bivystick, a device created by fellow adventurers that gives your cell phone satellite communication abilities via Bluetooth, keeping you connected when it counts.

If you happen to find yourself stranded in the unforgiving outdoors, the Bivystick allows your phone to text, share your location, call for rescue via an SOS button and check the weather from anywhere you’re at in the world. The device is also seamlessly integrated with the Bivy app, which has a database of over 45,000 trails, climbing routes and waterways, so it’s got you covered no matter where you go. You can even leave digital breadcrumbs so that you can trace your path, and you don’t have to worry about running out of juice either because it’ll keep your phone charged with its 5200 mAh back-up battery. It also includes approaches for climbing and beta photos for each route, in case you need some guidance. All you have to do is activate your Bivystick before your trip with a flexible data plan that doesn’t require an annual contract or a ridiculous activation fee. It’s simple enough: every action you do with the Bivystick is equal to one credit. For what it does, it’s also pretty affordable, going for $300.

Purchase: $300
