Everything in one box

All the essentials for back country travel. The shovel design is great for shovel or hoe mode. With minimal practice deploying the probe is easy. Great upgrade from some older gear I had been borrowing from a friend. The beacon is great peace of mind. Be sure to practice its use. Our local Mt has a beacon park. Everyone should use it annually.

Simple, basic effective

As the title says. Basic gear that does the job well. Very satisfied with the purchase and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a simple kit to use.

Great Beacon

Great beacon with a load of features for multiple burials, inclinometer, and more. Gets the Pieps app to keep it updated through your phone!

Best Avy Gear

The BD Guide has a few industry leading features. First, the locking mechanism actually locks hard in place. The flagging option works well and is very intuitive. And the searching signal isn't bothered by interference. Not to mention you can update the software yourself instead of sending it in each year.

Great set!

I'm new to backcountry access & this set caught my eye. I read a ton of great reviews and felt confident in my purchase. I've taken this kit out a few times, it feels light, durable & packs well in my bag. I also love how easy the beacon is to use.

Perfect safety set. Looking forward

Perfect safety set. Looking forward to test it on the slopes. Delivery was fast, even to ship in Québec. The DVA is bigger than my old Pieps DSP, but feels more sturdy. I was looking for all the professional functions at a legitimate price : there you go

Perfect kit

Is this particular kit a little overkill for my needs? Maybe. But it shipped quickly and the packaging was great. I'll be more than prepared for my upcoming ast1 course.

Great kit. One small flaw.

Great Avi kit. The only issue is the beacon can be bumped back to send when in the search mode. I believe they’ve addressed that with the new design but it is a small flaw with this model that you need to be aware of.

Lightweight kit

Light and functional safety kit. Tested beacon in drills and it is accurate. Backlight is useful for low light rescue efforts.
