Backcountry Access Stealth 260 Carbon Probe Reviews:


The probe is exactly what I wanted. It's light, clearly marked, and the deploy/lock mechanism is the easiest and simplest that I have seen (better than the BD, Ortovox, and Pieps probes I've used). Nothing needs to be screwed, tightened, or tensioned. I agree that the probe practically assembles itself before hitting the ground.
Fortunately, I have yet to use it to locate somebody. I didn't ski much avalanche terrain this season, but I usually carry it on backcountry days in VT to check snowpack depth and loading in different spots. It's a must-have in avalanche terrain, but it's light enough that I don't mind carrying it otherwise just for a few tests.

The first time I laid hands on this probe I was dumbfounded at how light it was. Featherlight comes to mind yet doesn't quite do it justice. Aside from the low weight is its performance. The probe ASSEMBLES BEFORE IT EVEN HITS THE GROUND, even on my first try it went together that quick. That is damn near unheard of and when every second and gram counts, this s the probe I grab.

So fast to use, assemble and disassemble, depth markings are clear and large, light and easy to pack. Extremely well made..... If you don't want to waste time this bad boy covers it all

If you are looking to shave weight for long tours drop in on this probe. I've been using it in my tour bag and couldnt be happier.
