Not all those who wander are lost. But most will get there at some point or another, and Garmin tries to help wayward hikers avoid disaster, should they accidentally wander too far from the beaten path. Garmin is the go-to in GPS navigation and satellite communications for big-time adventurers. But if you’re looking to equip for a smaller-scale journey, or can’t spare the space (or a mule) to carry full-sized satellite communicators, look no further than the Garmin inReach Mini.

Durable, lightweight, and above all highly-portable and wieldy, the Garmin inReach mini offers a variety of invaluable features for those venturing into the unknown. Two way messaging via the 100% global Iridium network allows you to communicate with your fellow hikers on a more reliable platform than your cellular network. A fifty hour battery life provides security in case you get separated from your crew, and if necessary can send an emergency signal to GEOS, an international emergency rescue organization. Garmin’s inReach is a must-have for those who blaze their own trails through the dense unknown, but prefer to pack light. This mini communicator will save space – and potentially, your life.
