Probe 280 Fast Lock
If you're willing to trade a few ounces for some extra length when you're traveling in areas with deeper snowpacks, pack up the Mammut Probe 280 Fast Lock. It's made of durable aluminum for 280cm of reliable probing, and it assembles quickly via Mammut's Fast Lock system, so you never have to burn valuable seconds putting your probe together or worry about it coming apart when you're at work. The drop-shape tip penetrates hard snow easily and precise depth markings help you easily gauge the depth of the snowpack.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Easy to use probe that will get the job done and not weigh you down. Rope at the end allows for quick deployment and the attached clip ensures the rope will never get tangled on anything when you're taking it out of your bag. Best part is it has a lifetime warranty :)
Well Made Probe
This is a great probe, well made. The only thing that is tricky is getting the hang of the the lock system (that gray button on the top) - takes a few tries. It sometimes wanted to lock up while I was trying to fold away the probe, but I think that was just part of the learning curve. Overall, well-made and snappy.
