If you’re like me, you love the outdoors. I spend the bulk of my weekends out hiking and backpacking. With my recent move to the Bay Area, I’m having a blast exploring all new trails with very different terrains when compared to my former location on the East Coast. A tech product that’s been helping me get acclimated to these new spots is the Garmin InReach Mini 2, which has become indispensable in my gear bag.

I first learned about the InReach Mini 2 at a Garmin-sponsored event earlier this year. I was impressed with it but thought it kind of took the fun out of hiking. Half the appeal of hiking is to “unplug,” as it were, and the InReach system keeps you connected no matter where you are.
