Brooks-Range 240 Aluminum HD Avalanche Probe
Easy and essential, and with this cost you don't have an excuse.
The essential avalanche rescue tool used between the beacon search and shoveling stage, the Brooks-Range 240 Aluminum HD Avalanche Probe is what actually locates your buried companion and confirms where you should start digging. Assembling this tool is easy; just toss it, pull the T-handle, and lock it into place. Then you can start probing in a grid pattern after your partner completes the pinpoint beach search.
- Tapered tube joints mean you shave off crucial seconds during the assembly
- The head busts through compact debris and is larger than the shaft to prevent snagging and freezing during repeated probing
- Graduated shaft lets you measure the snowpack in centimeters
- Lightweight (11.64oz) and compact when folded (15.75in) means you won't have a problem finding room in your pack for it
- A part of the avalanche safety trifecta (beacon, shovel, and probe) which is your best bet at a happy avalanche rescue
