Made for the adventure enthusiast, the DeLorme InReach device keeps people in touch even when they are officially off the grid. Since no one wants to have a '127 Hours' situation on their hands, this handy piece of technology could keep people out of serious trouble and even save lives.

The DeLorme InReach device essentially provides two-way satellite communication by way of a monthly subscription. Although many of these daring individuals will scoff at the idea of not only buying the DeLorme InReach device, but then locking themselves in a safety subscription, the benefit of being able to send distress SMS messages to pre-designated recipients along with your GPS coordinates at any time in any place should change their outlook.
