This just shortened your backcountry gear checklist.
Maybe you're the sort of tour warrior who needs a checklist so you don't forget something or maybe you just love multi-functional gear. The K2 LockJaw Adjustable Carbon/Aluminum Probe Pole is built to be the dedicated backcountry skier's tough-but-lightweight 3-in-1 tool. It's made from a lightweight Triax carbon upper combined with a durable aluminum lower.
Flip open the lever of the LockJaw2 adjustment mechanism, adjust your pole sections to the length you want, and the over-center cam locks down securely when you flip the lever closed for no fussing and more laps. A bubble vial inclinometer is built into the handle of the pole so you can get quick slope angle measurements on the go, and the snow-depth ruler is marked onto the shaft of this pole. The lower shafts screw together to form a 200cm probe so you can stay prepared and keep your kit lightweight. You want this pole if you're into dawn, dusk, or powder patrols far away from the help of ski patrol.
