Taking part in thrilling sports like rock climbing, mountain biking, or backcountry skiing means having the right gear. While your skill and physical preparation are key, having a few essential tech gadgets can make your extreme adventures safer, more convenient, and more enjoyable. Here are nine pieces of tech you won’t want to head into the great outdoors without.

1. Action Camera

A good action camera, like the ones on Impossible, captures stunningly smooth high-resolution video to document all your daredevil pursuits like surfing, cliff diving, or downhill mountain biking. Look for the latest camera that’s tiny yet rugged enough for all your adventures. It should be waterproof to 30 feet without a case and have built-in video stabilization and hyperlapse modes to create mesmerizing videos.

2. Satellite Communicator

When you’re way out in the backcountry beyond cell service, a satellite communicator lets you message friends and family and trigger an SOS to emergency responders if needed. It should provide truly global coverage from anywhere on Earth using a satellite network. It can also provide basic weather reports, track your route, and more.

3. Rugged GPS Sports Watch

Keep track of all your workout metrics even in extreme environments with a rugged GPS sports watch built to military standards. It should have extreme temperature tolerance, waterproofing over 300 feet, and long battery life even in GPS mode. Use it to track elevation, heart rate, cadence, and more to make the most of your adventures.

4. Avalanche Airbag Safety Backpack

For backcountry skiing and mountaineering where avalanches are a real risk, an avalanche airbag backpack can inflate a giant airbag by pulling a cord if you’re ever caught in a slide. Look for one with an integrated module that lets your partners know if you’ve deployed your airbag so they can immediately begin search and rescue.

5. High-Lumens Headlamp

Don’t get caught out after dark without a high-performance headlamp putting out at least 1000 lumens to illuminate any path. Look for intelligent, reactive lighting that adjusts beam strength and width automatically based on what’s around you. It’ll keep you safely in the know without weighing you down.

6. Large-Capacity Portable Charger

Running out of power shouldn’t end your adventures early. Carry a lightweight, large-capacity portable charger with enough power to charge most smartphones multiple times. Quick charge and smart charging capabilities will ensure speedy powerups for any device.

7. Rugged Bluetooth Speaker

After an epic day on the trails, slopes, waves or rocks, celebrate in style with upbeat tunes from a durable Bluetooth speaker. Look for one with pulse-pounding bass, long battery life, a good waterproof rating and a design that can handle any conditions. Wherever your adventures take you, it’ll bring the party.

8. Emergency Beacon

For activities like multi-day hikes, sailing or fly fishing in very remote areas, an emergency locator beacon could save your life if you get injured or lost. Compact, affordable personal locator beacons use satellites to send SOS alerts with your GPS location to emergency responders wherever you are.

9. Solar Charger

When you’re off the grid for days or weeks, a portable solar charger lets you juice up devices using the power of the sun. Highly efficient models convert up to 23% of solar energy into charge for your camera, GPS kit, headlamp and other adventure gear. Waterproof designs mean even bad weather won’t hinder the free power.

With this ultimate kit of adventure tech, from cameras to safety gear to entertainment, you’ll have everything you need for unlimited extreme sports fun. The only limit is your imagination and courage to take the path less traveled using cutting-edge gadgets designed with thrill-seekers in mind. Get out there and make legendary stories!
