The backcountry is a sacred place where the cares of our busy day-to-day should be forgotten. Conversation should revolve around the excitement for the skiing to come, the sting of cold air in your lungs, the majesty of sparkling snow and towering trees. Or, you can talk about gear and how psyched you are that you picked up ARVA's Access probe! This lightweight, compact little gem will inspire confidence in your touring partners without weighing you down. An 11mm shaft made of strong 7075 aluminum breaks down into 6, 40cm segments to give you 240cm of length should that time ever come to start poking around in the debris. The details are covered with markings on the shaft to show snow depth and a locking handle that attaches to the probe to keep it out of your way once deployed. ARVA's FLASH LOCK system is quick, easy, efficient, and reliable so you can go from stashed to searching in no time. When you're out touring, the gear you use the least may be the most important that you can carry. Keep it light and keep everyone safe with ARVA's do-it-all Access probe.
