Welcome to The Gear List, a semi-regular series where we spotlight the best discounts and deals on tactical equipment, outdoor gear, and everything in between.

Bringing you carefully curated gear reviews of baller items like Italian designer sunglasses and automatic dive watches is a privilege, but I also appreciate a good deal when I see one. Keeping costs down is one of the ways I squirrel away enough money to feed my need for adventure, and––since sharing is caring––it’s only fair to pass the good word on to you.  

Today, we’re going to smoke out some of the internet’s best deals and steals. Whether you’re planning a cross-country motorcycle road trip or something a little closer to home, the Task & Purpose crew has you covered. Our team has been locating, closing with, and creating sweet write-ups of the best gear you can get on a budget.

Without further ado, let’s dive into this installment of The Gear List with some of the best bargains of the day. As always, hit us up in the comments section if we missed anything. Happy hunting!

Road trip vacations are a lot more fun when you don’t get lost. Smartphones and lensatic compasses are great, but I’m a big fan of standalone GPS units that can provide up-to-date road information without burning through my data plan or sapping my cell phone’s battery. It’s nice to know that Garmin has us covered, whether we prefer to chase horizons on four wheels or two.

The Zūmo XT’s 5.5-inch screen makes it compact enough for any mainstream phone mount, and Garmin built it tough enough to handle the kind of rain and impacts you’re likely to subject it to. Not only does it provide street maps, topographical maps, and satellite imagery of roads, trails, and public land boundaries, but it can also deliver turn-by-turn directions to your headphones so you can keep your eyes on the road. Connect it to your phone to get live weather and traffic updates. Possibly the best part is the adventurous route option, which selects routes based on the number of turns and changes in elevation.
