The Backcountry Access BC Link 2.0 radio is an easy-to-use back-country communication tool . Most users report good range and glove-friendly controls, though a few reported defects. While pricier than other radios, the remote speaker microphone is compatible with BCA and other backpacks, and enables communication while the radio is safely stowed in a pack.
The Backcountry Access Magic Carpet Skins are reliable skins for all conditions, with a smooth glide and a good grip. The glue is very sticky–almost too sticky, in fact– which means you should prepare to use some muscle when separating them, especially when the skins are new. The skins are durable, even in rocky terrain, but the weak point is the back clip, which can be awkward to use, although it will fit most ski styles.
The Backcountry Access BC Link is a durable two-way radio with minimal frills and a long battery life. It provides users with the ability to reliably communicate in backcountry and front country settings for extended periods of time.
