Backcountry Access Stealth 270 Reviews:


Love this probe. Simple is key in the backcountry, and BCA nailed it with their Stealth series of probes. The simple pinch mechanism for deployment/break down makes things quick and easy when using your probe. Doesn't take a lot of practice to get used to, although practice is essential with all rescue gear that will be used for safe backcountry travel. The 270 size fits into my Black Diamond Covert Pack perfectly. If you are in the market for a new probe, I would recommend the BCA Stealth series.

This is a perfectly adequate probe. It isn't super light, but its not super heavy either. It is long and has a pretty solid, quick and easy to use deployment method. If you need a probe. this is a good one to have.

Of all the probes I have used this is the quickest and easiest to get fully erect. It also breaks down easier than most.

as the description says. Great for a moderately deep snowpack, glad to have it in my bag.
