Sometimes, in our quest to get away from it all, we end up straying a little too far. That’s when Somewear’s Satellite Hotspot comes in.

This small handheld device makes it so you can instantly turn your smartphone device into a satellite phone – making it possible to connect with family and friends no matter where you are. In addition to making it easy to send texts, this device also allows users to check weather reports, share locations with others on their trip, and receive local alerts. And if things go south really fast, this even has an SOS button you can hit to get help from emergency responders. All things said, this device is an essential lifeline for those who are looking to go do anything from backcountry snowboarding, to through-hikes, and more.

Kickstarter: $300+
