Do you love someone who loves the outdoors? Give them the gift of safety with a satellite communication device!
And now is the perfect time to do so. Both inReach and SPOT are offering special Christmas deals.
These devices allow your loved one to send a message, letting you know that they are safe on their adventure, with just the touch of a button. Should something go wrong, they also offer an SOS feature that sends a message to the Rescue Monitoring Center.
When Mountain Shop employee, Gary Lawton, told us that he was going to hike the Continental Divide Trail we insisted he carry a SPOT device. At first he resisted because of the extra ounces, but he relented when he realized the peace of mind it would bring us was invaluable. This was the greatest gift he could give.
inReach is offering a $50 rebate and one month of free airtime for devices activated by December 31st. This deal applies to both the inReach Explorer ($379) and the inReach SE ($299).
SPOT is also offering an awesome Christmas deal with a $75 rebate for devices purchased by January 4th and activated by February 9th.
