The Backcountry Access Stealth 270 Probe features a quick-deploying mechanism to reduce fiddle time during beacon drills and rescue scenarios. BCA's Quick-Lock deployment lets you toss the probe in the air and simultaneously pull a notch to deploy the probe instantaneously, and the deployment tucks inside the first probe section to reduce space. Laser-etched depth markings assist with measuring snowpack depth and locating burial victims.

Works When You Need It
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This probe has been a mainstay in my pack. It works. That's the bottom line when it comes to probes. It stows easily and when the time comes to deploy it, the locking mechanism works like a charm. My only hesitation is that I might upgrade to a 300 length out of respect for how deep a debris pile could end up being.
