We love these! The compact carrying case is perfect size and keeps them protected and makes transportation easy. They radios are a great size and weight. The clip helps keep them securely in place and easy to access the controls. The features they offer are perfect. Love that they can work as emergency radios to access information since they can access 11 weather radio stations. I really like that I can use headsets with them, makes it much easier to talk on the go without worrying about conversations being overheard. Great radios!!!

I recommend this set of Motorola 2-way radios. We use these when traveling in our motor home and our kids follow in a car . the capability of communication with out using our cell phones makes connection very easy. When were exploring we stay in touch. The long range is perfect for us when were in town so easy to set a meeting time. The weather channels with alert feature is a must have when traveling.

The Talkabouts were a little hard to get use to but after reading the instruction I figured it out. The 25 mile range is only if you are on a mountain and have a clear line of sight with not obstructions but in real life the range is under a half mile if your lucky. That being said we use these in our yard to communicate with each other on a acre and a half and they work great. The rechargeable batteries don't last long but if you need more run time then you can use 3 AA batteries. I like the case and to be able to charge both units at the same time plus the case is bright red so you can find it easily in a emergency.

Yes I would recommend Motorola 2 - Way Radios. Motorola has always made a quality product that is built to last. These Radios are so handy for any home and family, We use ours when we hunt, fish, ski and camping. They are so handy and easy to use. The directions for set up are easy to follow. Being able to talk to the kids when we are separated is priceless. The range for these is up to 25 miles and that number can change depending on terrain. 22 channels helps you to find one that can work for your needs. These will work with other FRS/GMRS radios regardless of brand. Micro USB charging cord included, that has a Y section so that you can charge both radios off one cord. 121 Privacy codes. Dual power VOX/IVOX hands free use, which is handy when you need the use of your hands. Ring alert to aid in you hearing when a call is coming in. Rechargeable batteries included, they will last up to 12 hours and you can then change to AA batteries that will last 29 hours. Belt clips included. Backlit light to see easily in low light areas. 20 Call tones that you can change. I am very impressed with this set, we used it Elk hunting the other day and they worked great, clear sound and with no issues.
