2-Way Radio - Durable

Communication on the trail can be critical. BaoFeng radios are highly rated and super reliable. This radio comes with multiple batteries, a long antenna, multiple mic options, a keypad, and an LCD screen. It's form factor is more durable than the budget options.

The VHF and UHF dual-band radio has a great range. In our product tests we have been able to reach other radios from considerable distances.

Trail Purpose

Communicating with others in your party while on the trail is essential to make sure no one gets lost or injured. We recommend carrying at least two radios on each outing where you are likely to split up. We like the idea of having one of these quality radios per adult with a standard RFS walkie talkie for kids.

It brings a lot of peace of mind to be able to check in when you're off the grid. Communicating whereabouts and plans is super important.
