Comments about Eton American Red Cross Solarlink FR370 Radio:
I've purchased several Eton products -- not all through REI. My objective was a good combination emergency radio that would be equally valuable for home use, recreational travel and as part of a portable kit for natural disasters and general emergency preparedness.
My two previous purchases were good, but had drawbacks. This product has none that I can see. It can both accept and provid multiple sources of charging, has good sound quality and reception, and the full range of NOAA emergncy warning features.
I cannot speak for durability, as I have not owned and used it very long -- which is why I feel I can only rate it four stars. ...But based on the few weeks I've owned it, I highly recommend its combination and quality of features and its versatility.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
