Motorola® TalkAbout® MS350R Waterproof Floating Two-Way Radios
Does the Job
These radios were a gift to be used for hunting in Idaho. The range diminishes quickly on inclement weather situations but on a clear day works great. They are a bit bulky when carrying and as all hunters know every little bit of weight counts on a long hunt. I really liked the weather option. Never got it wet so couldn’t tell if it is truly waterproof. I would recommend in spite of the comments above!

Not for hunting
I bought a pair of these radios for my last hunting trip. I managed to turn off most of the loud beeps for most things but couldn't turn off the Push to Talk (PTT) beep. After 3 hours of hunting I wanted to make sure my new hunter buddy was okay but when I pushed the PTT button a very loud beep was vastly distinguishable from my soft talk. There was no hiding it. And when I turned up the radio the PTT beep got even louder. I'm sure the deer were wondering who the idiot with the loud radios was and thanking me for the warning! Probably good for fishing, etc.

Died on first trip
One of the radios in the set died when it was splashed by water while fishing from my kayak. No radio for the remainder of a ten day trip. Very poor range, less than a mile on open water.
Hopefully it was just this radio as the other radio seems to work fine. I did not test it's waterproof capability out of fear of ruining that radio also.
Both have been sent back for repair/replacement.
