DeLorme InReach GPS Exporer With Two-Way Satellite Communicator
Sometimes, when you’re outdooring far away from civilization, most modern technology hardware becomes as useless as a river stone! Just imagine how your iPhone or iPad would help you out-there in the middle of a mountain with no internet connection or power outlet to charge twice a day! Of course, you can still use it to listen some music, read a book and an article saved via Instapaper or even to get some GPS coordinates, but that’s pretty much it!

Here’s where the dedicated hardware like the DeLorme InReach Explorer series come into the game! The Two-Way DeLorme InReach Satellite Communicator (model ID AG-008727-201) is a complete gadget designed to make your life in wilderness easier. The device comes with various sensors (digital compass, barometric altimeter and accelerometer) on-board which allow you to track trip statistics as well as get useful info about the voyage, color screen GPS navigation with route creation, waypoint and tracks history, is waterproof/dustproof (IP67; standard submersion to 1 meter for 30 minutes) and impact-resistant (Mil-STD-810G for shock) and sports an internal rechargeable battery which allows up to 100 hours of usage in normal conditions.

The Delorme InReach AG-008727-201 can be used to send and receive emails and SMS via the built-in satellite communication chip or can be paired via Bluetooth to iPhone, iPad and most Android devices out-there. A contract-free (minimum 30-day commitment) or annual satellite subscription plan is required for use (plans starting at $11.95 US per month).

Chrome Bravo Night Rolltop Backpack With 3M Reflective Panel
You like it or not there are times you need to travel after the sun sets! I know it sounds very dramatic, but I am not thinking at “The Walking Dead” type of night travelling to cross the country looking for a safe place to settle, I am thinking more about commuting from work to home, going out to run a couple of errands or grab some grocery or even going to see some friends!

Either you move by walking, biking, skateboarding or whatever other way, when traveling at night your need to stay visible.

The Bravo Night Backpack was designed to help in such situations! The backpack features a rolltop build, has a clean, black design so you can use it at school, work and anywhere else, and features a wide 3M reflective panel visible from up to 100 meters at night.
