Nice G3 and Backcountry collaboration

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Overall a nice probe. The aluminum construction feels durable, it snaps together very quickly with a single pull and comes with a blue goat storage bag. For the price it's just as good as any other aluminum probe out there.


Goat Probe

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

Great backcountry probe. This is a tool everyone needs in the backcountry. This probe is easy to use and deploys with a single pull of a cord and locks in place easily. I've only used it a couple times but seems durable. And it has a Goat on it so thats a plus.


Great probe!

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

I used it for a couple of drills this winter in Bariloche and it performed flawlessly! Nevertheless, I noticed that the rubber/plastic coating on the cable is starting to rip off after maybe only 10 deployments! It shouldn't be a problem, though, as it seems to be more aesthetic than anything...


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!
