Here's what other sites are saying:

If you're in the backcountry, you need your shovel and probe, period. The Slingblade allows you to carry both in a simple, light-weight system and deploy them faster. Do not settle for duct tape and climbing webbing when you could do so much better. A small investment for a better avalanche safety set up.


The Life-Link Sling Blade is designed for ski patrollers or anyone who needs a shovel and probe, but does not want to carry a pack, the Slingblade holds a Life-Link shovel and probe.

The Slingblade is a totally new system for carrying a shovel and a probe. It is perfect for a quick run out-of-bounds and at the ski area. It is simple and easy to use and fits most shovels and probes. Just make sure that your shovel has holes in the blade, which most do. Place your probe into the bag and use the quick release clips to attach it to your shovel blade. Then slide the metal clips through the shovel blade holes and you're all set. Make as many laps as you want without carrying a full backpack. The adjustable shoulder and chest straps ensure that your safety gear stays put and won't get in your way during an epic powder run.
