Barryvox Package

Earning your turns comes at a hefty cost when your life is on the line, especially after a heavy storm when snowpack stability is touchy to say the least. Even if you pick conservative terrain, analyze stability, and practice rescue techniques on a regular basis, you're still hedging your bets that the proverbial house of cards won't come tumbling down. The Mammut Barryvox Package gives you the means to rescue fellow skiers and riders, as well as help others locate you underneath an avalanche debris field, should things go horribly wrong on a backcountry tour.

The Barryvox Package includes a Barryvox Beacon, Alugator Ride Shovel, and Probe 240, making it a complete package intended for locating buried victims, emitting a life-saving signal if you're buried, and digging snow pits to assess stability. The Alugator Ride Shovel easily collapses and maximizes digging strength with its hardened aluminum blade. Furthermore, the Probe 240 extends to 7.9 feet for locating victims under the snow and collapses down to only 1.5 feet in your pack.

The Barryvox Beacon is one of the most popular on the market, and for good reason, thanks to its digital 3-antenna design with a 70-meter search strip for quickly locating buried victims. It's intuitive to use with an easy-to-read display that shows distance, direction, and victim number. The ergonomic design of the beacon features large buttons that work with gloves on. Multiple burial processing comes in handy for situations where there's numerous skiers and riders underneath the avalanche debris field, with a large flagging button for marking each victim's location. Another useful feature is the automatic switching between search to send after four minutes of inactivity, as it assumes a secondary avalanche has buried you.

My new Backcountry safety set up!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

The Mammut Avalanche package brings everything you need to be safe in the backcountry in an affordable package. Although I only used the probe and shovel for test pits and training burials I could tell the construction was solid. They fit into my avalanche bag perfect and were easy to assemble in a haste. The Barryvox beacon is now my go to for travel into the backcountry. Having a 70 meter by 70 meter search range this puts the Barryvox in the top category for effective search range for beacons in the market. The fast processing speed switching between search and transmit modes I found was faster than all other beacons I have used. found the Barryvox harness to be a little annoying so I resort to my dedicated beacon pocket on my bibs. All an all stoked on this package and feel safe riding into avalanche territory with all the tools to be safe to make it home!

So easy to use!

The shovel and probe in this package are pretty self-explanatory, nice that they collapse pretty small, but I really like the ease of use of the beacon. I wasn't sure between this or the classic Pieps beacon with the slider, but I think this one is much easier to use. On the Pieps it seems like the slider gets a bit harder to move after time and this one I didn't notice that being as much of a concern. Search mode is really easy to figure out and the harness isnt too awkward!
