I purchased this Mic for my Kenwood Tri-Band HT. It works great. The Mic has a good weight to it and the swivel-clip is strong and locks into your desired position. The Mic's coiled cord is a good length where you do not feel restricted. The sound quality is great as opposed to some other mics that I've heard. I am very pleased with this purchase. I have not used it in the rain yet but I'm confident that it will work fine based on the quality of this product. This was my first purchase from BridgeCom and I will not hesitate to purchase other items in the future.
