Great starter package
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fortunately I have never had to use this set up to actually dig out a friend but I have practiced using the beacon and probe at a beacon park at my local resort and have felt fairly comfortable with locating a buried person if I had to. Although I do admit I could use some more practice learning the in's and outs of the marking feature for multiple buries.
As for the shovel, I have only used it to dig out snowmachines in the backcountry. It's a solid shovel, no real complaints about it, there are definitely some that are a little better but this one worked just fine.
Beginner Backcountry Setup
I bought this for my wife. Easy to use, great instructions, good starter setup.
A lot of what you need - 1 package
Great starter kit.
Great Intermediate BC Setup
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The Pieps Sport Avi Package is a great intermediate setup for backcountry users. Great aluminium shovel, good length on the probe and a solid transceiver. Make sure you have all components when heading out into the backcountry.
Great Combo Pack
This is a great combo set for getting out into the backcountry. Easy to use. I would recommend this product.
Great set for getting out into the backcountry! I previously owned an ortovox beacon, but I think I prefer the pieps. I've been practicing with its use on beacon bags hidden around my home resort. Hopefully I will never have to, but if I do have to use it I feel comfortable with the beacon.
The black diamond shovel and probe are great as well. Easy to put together and break back down. Definitely feel ready for anything in the backcountry with this set up!
