The Garmin inReach Mini is one of the smallest full-featured GPS trackers and communicators available, making it a great gift to give to your favorite thru-hiker or solo adventurer. It weighs just 3.5 ounces and measures 4” by 2.” With a sturdy loop on the back, it clips just about anywhere on your pack. Thanks to the Iridium satellite network, it can provide text communication anywhere in the world and offers an SOS feature. It pairs with smartphones to show full maps and to make sending messages easier. REI’s got it for $50 off its $350.00 list price.
