Here's what other sites are saying:

When your rescue happens in really deep snow where debris can pile up, reach for the Carbon 340 Probe from Backcountry Access to precisely identify where someone is buried under snow, saving precious time during search-and-rescue operations. Light and long enough to get the job done right with little to no deflection in even the hardest snow conditions, this is a backcountry essential.

Backcountry Access designed its longest probe using carbon, so the extra length wouldn't weigh you down on your way to becoming a hero. A clear-coat finish over the silk-screened depth marks protects them from wear. This seven-section probe won't store inside your shovel, so count on using a little more room in you pack. We promise you won't mind while you're saving your friend's life.


The Backcountry Access Carbon 340 Avalanche Probe is the best of both worlds-long and light. The carbon fiber shaft has a grip tape wrap at the top to facilitate use with gloves and is marked at 1 cm increments for accurate readings. Coated interior cable and the Quickie Tensioning system make for easy set up in an emergency scenario. For mountain travelers who want the ultimate blend of light weight and maximum depth, the Backcountry Access Carbon 340 Avalanche Probe is the right choice.
