Excerpt: Used the radios while mountain biking in the backcountry. The menus are easy to navigate. Built-in flash light very handy. User manual very clear. The belt clip could be better engineered. Fell off my riding pack once.
Pros: Flashlight, Good ergonomics, Good reception, Weather radio
Excerpt: My 8yo son received some two-way radio's as a gift years ago that have been great to keep track of him. The one issue was that they were not waterproof. Well, after visiting a friend and swimming in their pool, they got wet and were ruined.
Excerpt: Bought these for ski patrol duties in the winter and boating in the summer. Have not tested them in the summer yet but so far I like them. They are not small, but seem very substantial. Did get them with the speaker mike accessory so not sure how they perform without it.
Pros: Clear Signal, Easy To Use, Good Audio, Rugged
Excerpt: I looked all over the internet. B&H was the lowest price I found for the two way radios that I ordered. I found other websites charging the same price for less inferior radios. The radios came in very quickly with the ordinary shipping. I am very pleased with B&H.
Pros: Clear Signal, Easy To Use, Good Audio, Lightweight, Rugged
Excerpt: I got this two way radio set for a road trip and to use on set for video productions. It became evident on the first test that the range on these was nowhere near 36 miles...or 3 miles. I live in Indiana where it's generally flat and I was barely able to get 1 mile.
Excerpt: We use these on the houseboat and love them. We've had radios in the past that have gone overboard, and died as a result. Now we don't have to worry as we deploy these on island excursions with the kids.
Excerpt: First used when driving with several other cars to keep in touch. Between the lead car and the last we could always get a mile. It would be nice if estimated distances could be more realistic but as with all RF communication, conditions rule.
Summary: Bought these for my 12 year old granddaughter to play with friends in the woodlot behind her house. She takes them with her when family goes to the mall shopping, ship to shore when fishing etc. Specifically wanted waterproof feature. They are tough and perform great.
