We live in one of the most beautiful places on earth (its on the license plate after all!) If you’re one of the many British Columbians who loves the great outdoors, we are the place for you.
We often think about our gear with respect to tents or hiking boots. However, one of the most important pieces of gear is your communication. Every year, hundreds of people get lost in BC’s back country. Make sure you have the resources you need to get home safely!
There are a few ways you can stay connected while playing in nature. First, you can use ‘walkie talkies’ also known as FRS units. These handy devices help keep you connected with others in your group. Thus, if someone goes wandering off, you can find them and get home safely. These devices are very cost efficient and super easy to use.
Tend to hang out alone during your adventures? Sat devices are the thing for you. These units help you to communicate with those at home while you are out in the woods. These units range in price and features. Spot units are perfect for simple communications. InReach are more complex and allow for two way communication.
