These radios are incredible. They are powerful tools in the backcountry. Line-of-Sight communication is impressive and non-direct is as well. We used these on our Yukon Ski Expedition this past spring.. and after a part of our team got hit with a powder cloud from a calving serac we were able to communicate quickly and access the situation post-avalanche (note the climbers in the bottom left of the photo). We were also able to give them warning. There is nothing better in the field than the ability to communicate clearly and concisely with your teammates when you split up into teams. Also as a mountain guide, it is so helpful to have another/alternate resource for communication with clients when, for example, the wind picks up or if you are separated by terrain features and providing instruction and direction for route-finding and safety. The radios maintained excellent battery strength in the sub-zero environments and were strong and durable for our crew - all of who are typically hard on gear. Lastly, they have simple yet excellent features like a lock mode (for clients etc) and other easy programming to utilize in various environments/circumstances. Highly recommend these radios for any backcountry/mountain traveler.
