Default Quality Two Way Radios

Hey I'm looking to get a set of good quality two way radios. There was talk of having them for the 09' ECM, and the question of having aenough of them came into play I know I had a few with me last year but those belong to my dad. I'm sure he will have no problem lending them to me agian but I wouldn't mind having some of my own so I don't have to worry about replacing his, ya know what I mean.

So yea just looking for any input and or helpfuls info or expireince some of you peoples might have.

motorola always served me well

the only issue came with recharging them in canaduh and their short battery life... but i think that was more to do with the piss weak sparks currents.....

motorola have been bomb, and for their cost they should be just fine. i know there are more expensive ones out there but honestly at a ski resort ive never had trouble locating someone on those motorola ones.

I've had two pair of motorolas and they have worked great for me, as long as you don't drop one of them off a cliff.

My only complaint with them is that the rechargeable battery that comes with it is pretty much useless after a years use, just won't hold a charge for a whole day after that. I switched to just using 4 triple A's and they last for a long time.

Definitely nice to have for a day out on the slopes, especially when you have a group with varying skill levels and can't all do the same runs together.

I bought this set of Cobra Micro Talks and they were a bit expensive but great range and they have sub channels which is important at a ski mountain because you don't get the cross feedback of other people on the same channel, and they have a cool weather radio. I bought them because of the smaller size compared to the Motorola's and the extra battery life...
