For several hours today I thought I had lost my GoPro from my month long trip in Alaska. Then I found it in one of my jacket pockets, and I was quite relieved. I recovered 22GB of JPGs on the GoPro.

So now I'm thinking ahead to future outdoor trips where I don't have a laptop with me. How exactly do I make copies of the Micro SD card on the go?

I saw this on amazon, but it is quite expensive. Though I would have paid that much earlier today to un-lose my GoPro and 22GBs of photos.

Just wondering if you guys had other thoughts. My laptop does often come with me when I travel, but sometimes I'm in the wilderness for a long enough time that a laptop's weight is not practical to lug around, and sometimes would be considered a burden.

I ended up getting this one, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07P5QDQ1B/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

because I can just bring any solid state drive along to copy on to. The cheaper one you referenced is not SSD and I stopped trusting spinning hard drives some years ago when one my mine crashed and I lost all data on it.

Looks nice.
