Never venture into mountains without a probe and a goat.
The third piece of the essential avalanche kit, a probe is as vital as boots and skis every time you head into the backcountry. Backcountry.com has teamed up with the avalanche safety gurus at G3 to offer the goat-friendly 240 Probe, which uses a single-pull deployment system and dependable 7001 aluminum shaft to ensure quick assembly and reliable strength, with a small goat design to separate your probe from the pack. It's marked every 5mm for easy pit measurements, and has a pointed cone tip for easy probing in rock-solid avalanche debris.

Probe it out!
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
I bought as a gift for a friend that is getting into touring and backcountry riding. It is an essential tool in the backcountry as it helps save lives. This probe is super easy to use - all it takes is a single pull from the handle to pull the probe together. It is extremely reliable and durable. As mentioned in the description, it is marked every 5mm for accurate reading and can easily penetrate the snow with the pointed cone tip.
Easy to use
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I hope I never have to get poled by it, but....
I really like single-pull design - it makes a lot of sense when time is essential, fingers are cold, and everything is jammed up with snow. This is a great probe, and the goat makes it even cooler. Don't go into the backcountry without it!
