The Rocky Talkie is a license-free radio designed and tested in the Colorado Rockies. Created with climbers and skiers in mind, the radio is suited for any rugged adventure where communication is critical.

A specialized lithium-ion battery provides over 3 days of battery life, even in very cold conditions (-20F). For enhanced durability, the radio has a shatterproof LED screen and thermoplastic protective covering. Unlike the fragile plastic clips of other radios, the Rocky Talkie easily secures to backpacks and harnesses using an ultra-light carabiner and back-up leash.

The radio transmits the maximum power legally allowed for use without a license (2-watts). The max range is over 25 miles, however, 1 to 5 miles is more typical in backcountry terrain. For more info on range, please see our range testing video or walkie talkie range blog post.

The Rocky Talkie is ready to use out of the box and requires zero configuration. The electronics are simple and reliable - the radio has 5 buttons that are easy to understand while still supporting the critical advanced features (such as privacy codes to prevent outside interference).

Package includes:

• One radio with shatterproof screen (4.8 oz)
• Mammut® Wall Light Carabiner (0.8 oz)
• Metal-reinforced back-up leash
