Excellent product from a great company. Just started purchase several backcountry hunt items and GoHunt has been amazing.

I was able to take the InReach into the Colorado backcountry last fall and use it alongside my buddy's inReach mini. The full size is much more user friendly and way easier to navigate through the settings in our experience. My full size was also much more accurate in navigating to the same waypoints that we logged standing side by side. The full size is bigger/heavier than the mini but the added applications and larger screen far outweighed the size and price difference in my opinion. If you're mainly hiking or just spiking out for 2-3 day stints, the mini is likely sufficient. For those extended backcountry hunts, the full size is the way to go. Both are limited in the ability to send messages, thats the way of a satellite communicator, but it sent my pre-set messages with no problem from the mountains peak, down to the lowest most tucked away drainage in some thick timber. The battery life on the full size and mini were awesome, definitely much better than I anticipated. We were off the grid for 10 days and I briefly charged mine once. Overall I was very happy with this purchase and the added security it gave me in the woods if something were to have happened. If you hunt backcountry areas, you need this.
