Backcountry Access - BC Essentials Package

Availability: Out of stock

Stock #: L423X

The BC Essentials package combines the trinity of avalanche preparedness hardware: a B1 EXT shovel, a 240cm Profile probe with quickdraw cable, and a Tracker DTS beacon.

BCA 240 Profile Probe:

  • 240 cm long, 40 collapsed
  • Aluminum shaft
  • Weight: 247 grams

B-1 EXT Shovel:

The B-1 EXT is both light and extendable for weight concious skiers and snowboarders that prefer the comfort and functionality of an extendable shovel.

The 6061 aluminum BCA Bomber shovels feature an oval shaft with a more packable, bombproof, "ferrule-less" blade, ergonomic grip, and T6 heat treatment. The 2012/2013 Bomber Shovels now feature an end cap on the shaft, which prevents snow from building up along the inside. The Bomber line boasts an off-the-chart strength to weight ratio, while taking up minimal storage space in your pack. Remember, the excavation process in an avalanche rescue is where the most time can be lost or gained.
