Stealth 300 Probe

It's important to practice with your avalanche gear so you can quickly respond to emergencies while backcountry skiing. Luckily, Backcountry Access' Stealth 300 Probe has the quickest deployment available right out of the box. BCA's Quick-Lock deployment lets you toss the probe in the air and simultaneously pull a notch to deploy the probe instantaneously, and the deployment tucks inside the first probe section to reduce space. The Quick-Lock system also prevents the excess cable from whipping you in the face while you probe, allowing you to focus on the task at hand. Laser-etched depth markings never fade, even after years of rubbing against your pack.

  • Aluminum avalanche probe offers extra length for efficient searching
  • Shorter collapsed length fits more easily in your pack
  • Included storage bag keeps the probe protected during the off-season
  • Laser-etched markings allow you to measure snowpack depth

Nice probe, but the whole batch appears to be mis-marked and mis-labeled. I want a 300cm probe. I ordered a Stealth 300, and the sheath and label on the probe I recieved did indeed say "300", but the length was only 270cm. The same appears to be true for the 240, 270 and 330. Each probe appears to be marked as one length longer than it really is. If you want a 300cm probe, it looks like you need to order a 330cm probe. This is confirmed in photos on this site, and is also true in my local mountain shop and even shown in the photos on BCA website. The photo shows a screen shot from the BCA website with a probe marked and sold as a stealth 300, but only 270cm long.
