Safety equipment should be the most important kit in anyone’s pack who enters in to avalanche terrain. My choice in probe is the Black Diamond Quick Draw Guide Probe 300mm because it is rock solid and easy to use. The first thing I look for in a probe is the length; stay clear of anything under 280cm, as avalanche debris can easily be meters deep. Second is a tough alloy or carbon shaft and thirdly is a grunty easy to use quick draw fastening system. This probe has it all and won’t break the bank. Practice regularly and buy quality.
