Backcountry Access Snow Study Kit - 4 Piece Reviews:


I've been using this kit for a couple of seasons now and weather I am having a casual day of touring and digging quick pits or getting after a full profile I love having my study kit. I always know where all my tools are, and the design is obviously well thought out by snow professionals.
Some of my favorite features to the case:
- the zip compartment which I use for my pencil, a mini write in the rain, and I actually put my slope meter in there too.
-The ability to hang the kit off my ski tip.
-The elastic band that runs across the back of the book which I use to put my field book in that way all my observation tools are in one place.
All and all a great kit to keep you organized in your pit.
