5 reviews for BC Link™ Two-Way Radio Camo

  1. 5 out of 5

    Each of us carried a BC Link radio in Great Basin National Park and they proved invaluable. The high winds on the approach to the summit made even basic communication in close proximity tough. And the meandering nature of the ski descent left us out of each others’ sight often and forced us to radio back directions and condition updates. I never head into the backcountry without my BC Link.

    Great Communication = Better Safety

    Over the years I have used many radios for communication. The little handheld walkie talkies from Costco, Garmin and now the BackCountry Access BC Link. There are many reasons I prefer the Link over the previous radios I have used. First I really like the capability to tuck the radio unit into my pack and feed the cord to attach the mic to my backpack. This works really well enabling communication without taking your helmet off. You are also able to hear your buddies communicating with you while riding. I have also found the range to be much further than other radios I have used. It’s a durable radio as well. I highly recommend this radio to add to your essential items for the backcountry.

    Clear communication is one of, if not the most important aspect of successful days in the backcountry and the BC Link Radio is a very effective tool in aiding group conversation. Your pack houses the base unit while the microphone clips onto your shoulder strap. The base unit utilizes a rechargeable lithium ion battery, is waterproof and compatible with all standard FRS/GMRS radios. The mic unit is glove-friendly and includes a push-to-talk button, power switch, volume control and channel selector. Communicating with your entire team, even from the next ridge over, has never been easier.

    These radios from backcountry access have to be one of my favourite pieces of equipment. And now in camo! How cool is that? I use these radios all season long on fishing/hunting trips, trail maintenance days etc. They are not just for winter and a very reliable and important tool in my kit.BC Link Camo Radios

    Backcountry Access (BCA) released the BC Link Radio in 2014, and it’s grown tremendously in popularity since. Communication is one of, if not the, most important aspect of successful days in the backcountry and the BC Link Radio is a very effective tool in aiding group conversation. Your pack houses the base unit, while the microphone clips onto your shoulder strap (it’s compatible with all backcountry packs, but works particularly well with the BCA Stash Packs). The base unit utilizes a rechargeable lithium ion battery, is waterproof and compatible with all standard FRS/GMRS radios. The microphone unit features glove-friendly controls including a push-to-talk button, power switch, volume control and channel selection. On a recent overnight trip in the Colorado backcountry—specifically the Holy Cross Wilderness—I found the BC Link to be particularly useful. A spring storm was hovering above us as we traversed a mountainside in an attempt to find a route to our final objective. Visibility was low, but our team of four was able to communicate back and forth, relaying to each other information about whether certain routes into the East Cross Creek drainage were safe and skiable. Ultimately, we were forced to turn around on that trip, but the BC Links were vital in helping our team come to the safe conclusion to high-tail it home.
