Details

The holy trinity of the backcountry.

Peanut, butter, jelly. Bacon, lettuce, tomato. Beacon, shovel, probe. Good things seem to come in threes, and Backcountry Access is hopping on the trifecta train with the DTS Rescue Package, which combines the legendary Tracker DTS avalanche beacon, Stealth 240 probe, and Bullet shovel to make sure you're fully equipped when you head into the backcountry.

The Tracker DTS beacon is a legend, due to its simplicity, durability, and reliability. With three AAA batteries included, it'll run for 200 hours in transmit mode and 50 hours in search mode, with two digitial antennas that provide reliable signal recognition over a 40m range. Clear and intuitive direction and distance indicators take most of the guesswork out of searching, and the easy-to-use multiple-burial mode is a key--if hopefully never necessary--feature. The DTS automatically switches to transmit mode after 10 minutes of inactivity, in case the searcher has been caught in a secondary slide, and the large buttons make it easy to operate with gloves on, giving you one less thing to worry about in an emergency.

The shovel and probe are far simpler, but no less important; after all, you need all three to successfully locate an avalanche victim. The DTS package includes the Bullet Shovel, a basic-but-bomber aluminum fixed-blade tool, perfect for moving large amounts of snow in a hurry. Backcountry Access designs the Bullet's blade to fit efficiently inside packs, saving space for other gear, and gave it an ergonomic handle for easy grip. Last but not least, the Stealth 240 Probe is made of tough and lightweight aluminum, with a Quick-Lock assembly system, depth markings for snow study, and a pointed tip to easily penetrate hard snow. If you're getting into the backcountry for the first time or looking to replace a tired-out avy kit, the DTS Rescue Package is a simple, bomber, and trustworthy setup.

everything you need to get you going

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this kit when i moved out to Utah to keep me safe in the mountains and has done everything i have asked of it. It is super lightweight, affordable, and great for a beginner in the BC. The beacon is really easy to use as it has been the number one choice of beacon for most. If you have any questions about this package or the differences in some of the other beacons feel free to reach out directly with questions.

everything you need to get you going

Basic kit it is

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Bought this kit at a great price. Absolutely get what is advertised. It's a budget kit. The Tracker beacon, while good in it's day, now rates low compared to Tracker 2 or others. Online reviews suggest to spend the extra $$. The probe is good. The shovel I found harder to use as it does not have an extendible handle. In the end, I upgraded to the better package. Worth consideration.

Good Set up for your first time

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I would recommend this package to anyone looking to get out in the backcountry. Its affordable and easy to use. The shovel comes in 2 pieces and breaks down to fit in most back packs. The probe is light weight and easy to assemble. The beacon is super simple to use with led lights and a super annoying beeping noise when in search mode. Overall its a good starter package.

A smart buy

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Although I hope to never have to use these in a real scenario, I am confident that they will do their job. The probe is easy to put together and comes in a separate case. The shovel breaks apart and fits perfectly into my Osprey Kode backpack. The beacon is super simple and easy to use. This is a great beginner package for those people starting their backcountry skiing hobby.

Great probe

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The probe is really fast and easy to use; I am well impressed. The shovel and beacon are good; no problems, nothing outstanding; which is what you want in a basic beginner kit.

Hi,

Can I put this on order for when it's back in stock?

Cheers,

Nick

What's the deal with the bullet shovel? I can't find any information or reviews on it. The neck on the blade looks long. Is that included in the shovel blade dimensions shown? Not sure if this will fit in my BCA stash 20 pack.
