If you don't use a string in the hole, I'd always make sure to keep the device in a zipped pocket/water bottle holder to ensure you don't lose one (they are nice and compact to fit!), but otherwise two thumbs up on the quality and reception and rechargeable batteries! We will be bringing these radios on all of our trips and adventures!

Pros

  • Small, fits in hands
  • Rechargeable batteries
  • Weather scanner

Cons

  • Slightly cheap feeling plastic
  • Not a larger hole to sling to make sure it doesn't fall off

We recently brought our LXT600VP4 Two Way Radios on a trip to Mt. Shasta to use while hiking... but it turns out we used them the most where we did not have any cell service. While it was a milder family vacation (no epic adventures), the radios came in most handy as "cell phones" for when anyone left the airbnb to go pick up food, go for a walk, split the group into two, etc.   

Pros: These are the clearest walkie-talkie radios I have ever used. There was no foggy-ness or crackling, which made them a joy to use (versus getting frustrated with multiple "can you repeat that?"). While we never got 30 miles apart, they never lost reception or quality.  

We also really enjoyed the weather scanner and the ability to choose from a ton of channels when in a popular area. I loved the fact that they have rechargeable batteries!!! It's a pain to always make sure you have batteries around, so it makes grabbing these radios an easier part of packing for your adventure.

Cons: For our purposes (climbing, skiing or hiking), I did not find the ear pieces useful as they aren't hands-free and you have to figure out how to run the wires to not limit your mobility. These radios also had a very small hole on the top of the clip to run a string through, but it would be nice to have this secondary connection point to the device itself rather than the piece that could potentially break off.

 Yes, I recommend this product.

Experience

I've used the item 4-5 times since receiving it, and have had it for about two months. I've used other radios on occasion, but was never satisfied with their reception.

These walkie talkies were so easy to use and the sound was very clear. Suitable for families—adults and children.

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Clear sound

We bought the Midland XLT600 to use when we are camping and adventuring. I liked that they were simple to use and the sound quality was excellent. In particular, the NOAA weather alert radio with weather scan was very helpful. Often we don't have good wifi or cell service when we are camping and we depended on the weather alert system when the weather was dicey.

We found multiple uses for the XLT600 walkie talkies. They were so convenient during group bike rides so that faster riders could keep in contact with slower riders. We also used them at the beach to communicate between groups staying in two different beach houses. Finally, they were very helpful when we were backing the RV into the campsite.

I highly recommend this product!
