Speed Pro 240 TECH Avalanche Probe–G3
Avalanche probes are kind of like helmets—we all know we should use them, but most of us don’t. At best, we choose some mini-probe that fits inside a shovel handle, or ski poles that convert. These options are fine, but when your buddies get buried and time is of the essence, don’t you owe it to them to be as well-equipped as possible? Enter the G3 Speed Pro 240 TECHavalanche probe. This baby may be big, burly, and stick outside your cute little 50cc Ridge pack; but it’s also the best tool to probe for a buried avalanche victim, hands-down. With a super quick toss-pull-screw motion, six lightweight aluminum sections come together to provide a full 240cm-long probe—that’s nearly eight feet of search depth. Easy-to-read depth markings help decipher between ground and victim, and a handy carrying case offers compact and streamlined storage. A host of little touches, like the coarse-edged nut for all-condition grip, help pull this probe even farther away from the rest. $90; genuineguidegear.com.
