From one of the most trusted names in backcountry travel comes a lightweight, easy to use avalanche probe--the Voile Tourlight Probe 260. The Voile Tourlight 260 probe assembles in seconds by pulling the lead inner tube attached to a coated stainless steel cable. It locks into place with a simple, strong pop up button. Interior probe cables tend to stretch over time, so Voile has addressed this issue with a brass knob that is attached to the cable allowing you to tighten or loosen the tension. There are markings on the probe every 5 cm to determine snow depth and aid in snow study.
Assemble the lightweight Tourlight Avalanche Probe 2.6 m from Voile quickly and without fuss and obtain snow depth readings easily via the anodized depth markings placed at 5 cm increments. Pull out the lead inner tube and adjust the cable tension via the simple adjustment knob, when you've dialed it in, lock it with a simple pop-button.
