G3 240 probe
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I haven't had to use the probe in any situation other than building a snow fort in my yard.. But it does pull together nicely, and the large cap/screw to hold it all together is easy enough to do with gloves on. the sleeve keeps it together with a little patch of velcro so its easy to get out when you need it and not tangled with anything else.
Good increments and sleeve
Simple and safe
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Does what is says it does.
Very straightforward, sturdy, and simple which is what you want.
Graduations are easy to read and the red/black colouring helps to quickly identify depth.
I would want my friends to use this probe if I were buried!
This probe is simple, strong and ideal for a day tourers backpacks. The measurements help you test snowdepths and really help in your snowpits. Easy to put together in a stressfull situation and strong enough to penetrate the avalanche debris without deflecting. perfect.
