As an experienced backcountry traveler, you know to carry a beacon, shovel, and probe to assess and respond to the snow. A big variable when you're in the backcountry is also your own group. Help boost communication with the BCA BC Link Group Communication System. This lightweight microphone and radio/battery pack keeps the lines of communication open whether you're making an on-mountain change of course, warning of an on-going slide, or coordinating search and rescue efforts. Designed to fit neatly with BCA's Stash series of packs, this 2-way radio will grab onto any ol' pack you have. Both units are designed to be water- and dust-resistant to deal with snow and storage. With 22 FRS and GMRS channels, and 121 sub-channels, you should have constant clarity when conveying critical information. Compatible with all standard FRS/GMRS radios, you'll be able to stay in touch with others not lucky enough to have this little number. The base unit can clip to your belt or pack, or you can stash it inside a pack pocket. The cord connecting the radio to the Smart Mic has an alligator clip to keep stray wires out of your way. Glove-friendly controls on the mic make it easy to share information without risk of frostbitten fingertips. You get a 2. 5-mile line-of-sight range and up to 140 hours of battery life. The 3. 7-Volt lithium ion battery can be recharged, so you've no excuse for not being fully prepared for any excursion in the wilderness, be it snow-covered or summertime.
