Great little tool!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've recently been more interested in really seeing the layers of snow in the pits that I dig. I bought this along with the BCA aluminum crystal card, it's super fun to see crystals up close and clear. The BCA access magnifying loupe seems pretty durable too, which I was not expecting!
