A good friend of mine just switched from a Kenwood KH2ATR2D2 or whatever that model is to a VX-170. He has a VX-177 already and that VX-170 is a logical choice for 2m capabilities.

I know mine doesn't have that orange stripe on the right side. It does say SUBMERSIBLE on the front though.

Yeah, my spouse has the regular mic and I have the waterproof one. The waterproof one feels and sounds 10 times better than that tiny regular speaker mic. The regular mic has a higher pitched "tinny" type sound to it on both TX and RX which I don't really care for.
