FRS/GMRS bubble packs:
+ Easy to find
+ Relatively inexpensive
+ 2 radios in 1 pack permits sharing
- No security
- Weak range
- Mediocre clarity

+ Much more secure
+ Very good range
+ Excellent clarity
- Somewhat less common
- Somewhat more expensive
- 1 radio as opposed to two

I currently own a pair of FRS/GMRS. Sometimes I wish I had gotten a UHF instead, but there are days in which having just a simple pair of radios is useful. It really depends what you're likely to use more often.
