Safer backcountry travel through real-time communication.
As an experienced backcountry traveler you know the importance of having a plan being equipped with the proper gear and staying in contact with your group at all times. Apart from changing conditions and gear malfunctions one of biggest variables you’ll encounter in the backcountry is group communication—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 while backpacking warning of an on-going slide when you’re backcountry skiing or coordinating search and rescue efforts in the event of an emergency.
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 risking 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.
