Little Chatter Boxes
Want to meet at the bottom of the mountain for hot cocoa in the lodge? How about at the will-call window after the game? Motorola's TalkAbout SLK two-way radio makes it easy to stay in touch (and, fortunately, hard to stay lost) no matter where you are. Made from a lightweight plastic similar to the kind used in motorcycle helmets, the TalkAbout ($154 per radio) is only the size of a deck of cards but is powerful enough to provide clear reception from up to two miles away, depending on the terrain and weather. It comes in four colors and can run for 12 hours on a rechargeable battery, or for up to 30 hours on three AA cells. Motorola, 800-353-2729; www.motorola.com.
