Rocky Talkie launched in late 2019 with its signature product, a backcountry radio made for climbers and skiers (view our backstory video here). We are known for our commitment to making easy-to-use and durable radios for use in the backcountry, as well as our best-in-class customer service. Rocky Talkie has a rapidly growing base of happy customers (see reviews here) in the USA and Canada. Although we initially designed our radio with climbers and skiers in mind, the radio has been adopted by a wide variety of outdoor enthusiasts and commercial applications. Our team has other products in the works for launch in 2023.
