No Problems

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I bought this kit last year when I started touring. I took an Avy 1 class and had no problem with any of the gear. This is my first beacon but it is very simple to use and I had no problem locating any of the buried beacons during the avy course. The 3 piece shovel fits well in my pack and the probe is simple enough to use. I actually like that it screws down because it is more secure for probing through hard snow. Definitely some gear I hope to never have to use but if I were to be involved in a real avalanche, not just the simulated ones in my avy course, I would feel confident in all three pieces of gear. Both for locating a burial and being on the other end of it with someone searching for my beacon. Battery life has been great on the beacon. I tour a couple times a month during the winters in Utah. This package fits great in my Osprey Kode 30 pack.

Transceiver was a lemon

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I returned this package immediately after transceiver failed during Day 3 AIARE Level I course companion rescue simulation. As I began the rescue, my initial signal search indicated a target burial in which I was able to pinpoint within 1m grid. As my partner began probing, my transceiver, spiked and went dead. It was at that point, our instructor/guide approached and told us that he had not buried a beacon in the location in which we were probing. Not cool and not something you want to hear when you are trying to save lives. I will not buy another, may invest in bigger brother Baryvox pulse as is has received some solid subjective reviews.

Shovel is a work horse and on the big side; some challenges with getting it out of front pocket of Dakine HeliPro DLX 20L. Handle and length are a plus for someone my size at 6'2" I plan to invest in another once I receive my refund.

Probe works well, my only concern is that is requires screwing washer down to ensure a secure lock which means a couple extra wasted moments when trying to perform an efficient rescue. Will not repurchase probe.
