My Take on the Product
These radios were great! What I loved most was first the range that these could cover. The box stated 16 miles (though around me I was not able to get coverage that far due to the terrain), but even more so was the overall small size of the radios themselves. When hiking with my eldest daughter this allowed us to wander a bit away from each other and still stay in touch and with how small they were it was easy to be able to carry these in our pockets so they were definitely not bulky in any sense. On top of this the radios were clear and we did not have many issues with frequencies crossing. I also liked the keypad lock that could be used as there were times in the past with other radios where setting were switched due to bumping the radio and this prevented it. All-in-all these were great radios that the whole family, both young and old can enjoy!

Thanks a lot for sharing this information. It seems a great product. And I love to have them for my nieces. It is a great way to communicate with them when we are out on malls and parks.
