Talking to my wife!!! -

While I purchased this radio set to talk with my fishing partner while fishing here in Northern New Mexico, they have also proven to be very useful in talking to my wife when she is working in her studio. Which is detached from our adobe home. The radios are very compact and fit in almost any pocket or pack. Instructions are simple and battery installation is a snap. I have yet to determine how long the batteries will last, but the radios go into "standby" mode automatically. The orange color also makes them easy to spot in a crowded pack or on a cluttered work table. Of course, I have yet to evaluate durability, but I sense they will hold-up well under normal use and abuse.

Works great, lightweight, small enough to fit in fishing vest pocket.
a toy -
By: southturner from London UK, Livingston Manor
goes through batteries like a kid through ice cream, and the alleged three mile range, is at best, speculation. Certainly not something to rely upon
Good Deal -
By: flyfishingjim from Michigan
For the cost, these walkie-talkies seem like a good deal. tried them out and they seem to work well. Will take them out to the river soon for the real test!!
What took me so long -
By: royzboy from Los Angeles, CA
When you get this product and use it you'll say "What took me so long ." It is great to be able to stay in touch with a buddy on a river about conditions and location. And it is great to be able to communicate in case of an accident. This radio set is easy to use, and produces clear sound. Get it, you'll be glad.
For the son who has almost everything -
By: MomWhoEnjoysGiving from North Florida
I got these radios for my son's 30th birthday. He was so excited when the box came in the mail that he opened it early. They are so easy to use that he and my 6 year old granddaughter use these every day when they go to the barn. My son, daughter in law, and granddaughter live in a remote location and do not get cell phone coverage. They really like the radios! They made a great gift for the son who has almost everything and likes toys. Thank you Orvis for having great products.

Grandsons love the walkies; easy to use, clear reception. I intend to use preparing hunting areas. Happy with pricing and value.
Lot's of buttons & instructions -
Nice looking handsets, but lengthy instructions and many buttons to press. Does not auto scan for next station and difficult too read screen, very small print size. For isolated areas only.
The Kids' Delight -
By: Grandpa11 from ewtown, CT
Thse were purchased for my grandsons, two rambunctious little 10-year olds to play with in their yards, or more appropriately on their small farm, which gave them plenty of room to try out their range. They were a hit!!!.

On sale price was right . Compact lightweight easy to use. Great for keeping in touch with fishing partner when on different parts of the river. Can't wait for hunting season to use them. Orvis quality as always shines through.
