Backcountry Access Snow Saw

    The Backcountry Access Snow Saw is no bone saw, but for what I needed (very occasional snow pits) it's totally adequate. Lightweight too, the only thing is that the blade guard comes off in your pack if you don't put a rubber band around it, but that is easily fixed with a hair rubber band that won't get cut by the back of the blade.

    What's the advantage of this saw vs. the G3 Bone saw (and vice versa)?

    I know I can cut wood with my bone saw, which is a really nice thing to have in the backcountry - emergencies like splints or starting fires, etc...I am not sure if this saw cuts wood.I can also attach my bone saw to a pole for cutting deeper in the snow pack. It doesn't work that well for this, but it is better than the BCA one which doesn't have an option for this.

    Does this come with a blade gaurd?

    I love this saw.

    BUT, the protective safety sheath is kind of bogus. It's very thin and barely covers all the teeth + the end of the saw (which is kind of sharp). I ended up making my own out of a thick peice of cardboard and some tape (works great). Also, it doesn't slide very well when you're in the field, it gets stiff.
