You can’t put a price on safety, but that doesn’t mean we won’t jump on a deal on one of our favorite satellite communicators when we see it. The compact SPOT Gen4 forgoes bells and whistles to give you just what you need to stay connected in the backcountry. It allows friends and family to track your location, and you can send pre-programmed check-in messages to them as well as put out SOS requests to emergency services. The device is already affordable at $150, but Moosejaw has it on sale for just $99.95.
