Here's what other sites are saying:

The Quickie tensioning system and 7-section 7075 aluminum tubing make the Backcountry Access SR3 a fantastic probe.


Backcountry Access SR3 Avalanche Probe - Mountain search-and-rescue is simplified with this avalanche probe's simple-to-use tensioning system and laser-etch depth markings in 1 cm increments. The SR3 comes its own storage bag and collapses to 19 inches for easy stowing in your backpack. Imported.

For organized search and rescue teams, instructors, or anyone who wants extra length and bombproof durability for constant use, the Backcountry Access SR3 Avalanche Probe is the one to reach for. This is BCA's longest probe at 9 feet 8 inches fully extended, and features their thickest diameter 7075 aluminum tubing for extra stiffness and resilience under stress. There's a weight penalty involved with the SR3's burly, long construction, but if the difference between finding and losing a victim is a matter of inches, you'll be glad you have them to spare.


The Backcountry Access SR3 Avalanche Probe is designed specifically for search and rescue workers and others who want a longer probe. The aluminum shaft is marked at 1 cm increments with grip tape at the top. Coated interior cable and Quickie Tensioning system make this probe a snap to deploy. You are ready to respond to any avalanche incident with the Backcountry Access SR3 Avalanche Probe.
