Stuff We Like: Motorola MR350

You love your phone, but would you trust it with your life? Cell reception remains spotty at most ski areas, and it’s less reliable the farther you venture into the backcountry. For safety’s sake, you’re better off with a two-way radio, such as the Motorola MR350 ($80), which has a range of up to 35 miles, seven NOAA channels that broadcast weather conditions and a one-touch emergency alert feature. The radios are also a hit with kids.
