The best avalanche beacon I have used.


  • Works
  • Easy to use


  • None

This is the simplest, most functional avalanche beacon I have ever used. You can pull it out of the box with zero experience in using a beacon and feel like a pro within 5 minutes. On top of that, it's reasonably priced and easy to find.

The harness is super easy to put on and is barely noticeable. The range is good. There's not much else to say — it's the ideal beacon. I love this thing. 100% recommended.

There is a reason that this beacon is #1. It is very inexpensive and easy to use. It has a great range of up to 50 meters in my experience. It's quick and easy, and worth the money. You won't be sorry with this beacon. -mark
