Super thread necromancy.

How are these units these days? Have they improved, gotten worse, or about the same? Thinking of getting a pair for my wife and I. She is well past water starting and is riding confidently and successfully in all directions in most conditions, so this is for coaching through toe side and jumps, or just for staying in touch in the water.

Is the battery life really 10 hours plus, or not?

How waterproof/durable have the units been? Anything to avoid, or any tips for maintenance?

I assume they are generally good because they are still on the market, and I really have not heard too much bad about them. Just wanting to ask in this thread to see if anybody has any recent experience.

Are the surf hats any good? Are they comfy, do they stay on in crashes, or are the helmets a better choice?

Still waiting for my Milos. Maybe this is a better choice when/if they arrives.https://www.okmilo.com
