    The holy trinity of the backcountry.

    Peanut, butter, and jelly. Bacon, lettuce, and tomato. Beacon, shovel, and probe—good things seem to come in threes, and Backcountry Access is hopping on the trifecta train with the DTS Rescue Package, which combines the legendary Tracker DTS avalanche beacon, Stealth 240 probe, and B-1 EXT shovel to make sure you're fully equipped when you head into the backcountry.

    The Tracker DTS beacon is a legend, due to its simplicity, durability, and reliability. Clear and intuitive direction and distance indicators take most of the guesswork out of searching, and the easy-to-use multiple-burial mode is a key—if hopefully never necessary—feature. The DTS automatically switches to transmit mode after 10 minutes of inactivity, just in case the searcher has been caught in a secondary slide, and the large buttons make it easy to operate with gloves on, giving you one less thing to worry about in an emergency.

    The shovel and probe are far simpler but no less important; after all, you need all three to successfully locate an avalanche victim. The B-1 EXT shovel is compact and lightweight,with an telescoping aluminum blade and ergonomic T-grip handle. BCA upgraded the Stealth 240 probe this season, making the depth markings easier to read and giving it a stronger tip that penetrates dense snow more easily. And with its Quick-Lock hardware, the Stealth stows better and deploys faster than any other probe out there.

    While having a full kit is infinitely better than relying on dumb luck, please remember that beacons, shovels, and probes are NOT a guarantee that you will survive an avalanche; get educated, learn how to use your tools, travel with trustworthy partners, and be smart out there.

    First step to safety.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This is a great backcountry kit with all the essentials. The Tracker 2 is very user-friendly, having used it for beacon practice, and the probe and shovel fit great in my pack. It's always important to carry this equipment and I appreciate the fact that it's relatively lightweight so I don't even notice it in my pack.

    Good place to start.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    No doubt there are higher end options out there, but if you're looking to get into touring you will find little to criticize about this BCA kit.

    The beacon is legendary for a reason: it is simple and intuitive - major selling points should you ever need to actually use it. The included beacon harness isn't pictured, but works great and is a welcome addition.

    Probe and shovel do exactly what you would expect: probe and shovel. Build quality again feels very solid and I expect to get many seasons out of them.

    Good Starter Set

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Bought this kit to take a Snow Safety Course. Really high quality components that don't weight a lot. And the price makes it a good set to start with that will carry you through many seasons.

    Safety First

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This beacon, shovel, probe bundle is a must if venturing out into the backcountry. These tools are high quality and will last a lifetime. Be prepared and purchase these backcountry safety essentials before enrolling in an avalanche safety course to ensure you are familiar with your safety devices.

    Unanswered Question

    Does the probe store in the shovel handle? If not is there another shovel which stores the probe inside the shovel?
