We are super excited to kick off our holiday season of Trail Tuesday reviews and giveaways! Today we get to share with you one of our favorite products from @garminoutdoor, the Garmin In Reach Mini, and one of you lucky ladies is going to win this device!
I have been using an In Reach Explorer from @garminoutdoor for nearly five years now, and was excited to try the newer, smaller, and lighter weight Mini. When I first received this device, it was smaller than I had thought it would be, but it packs a (big) punch! This small, rugged, lightweight satellite communicator features two-way text messaging and interactive SOS to the 24/7 search and rescue monitoring center. When paired with Earthmate via your mobile device, you can also access downloadable maps, U.S. NOAA charts, and color aerial imagery. Pairing your device is easy, and since receiving my Garmin In Reach Mini, I have fully converted! I have been using it while out on camping trips, tracking my hikes, and using it for two way messaging when out of range.
With the holidays upon us, it is the perfect time to be asking for (wink, wink) this device from our family and loved ones. One of the most asked questions I get as a solo hiker is about whether or not I feel safe. I have come to rely on my In Reach device for safety and for peace of mind, for myself and for those who care (or worry) about me.
In addition to winning or being gifted this device, @garminoutdoor also has all of their In Reach products on sale for a limited time. Our giveaway for the Garmin In Reach Mini will run through Tuesday, December 3rd. Be sure to be following us: @womenwhohike @garminoutdoor to be eligible to win, I @im_nicolemarie will be picking a winner end of day on December 3rd. Good luck ladies!
