Works great!
This is an awesome two-way radio! It worked flawlessly on Denali for communicating between different camps. I've also used it in the Sierra with varying success. It depends on how many trees/hills are between you and your partner. It is a very durable radio capable of taking abuse during backcountry adventures.
