Whether you're buying your first backcountry safety kit, or just replacing the old trusty gear that you've had for years, you're in the right place. ARVA is one of the leading names in avalanche safety, and they just so happen to be the manufacturers of our favorite beacon here at SkimoCo, the Neo+.
The Neo+ beacon covers all your bases with a top-in-class accurate search range of 70+ meters, sensors which switch the beacon to "send" mode if the rescuer stops moving (in the event of a hangfire burial), and a harness which allows the beacon to be worn in search mode in the event that you need two hands to navigate the debris. The Pro 240 Probe is also a top-in-class product, and is made of sturdy aluminum sections with a kevlar pull-cord inside. The Guard shovel features an oval 40-55cm telescoping shaft with a Y-handle that your gloved/mitted hand is bound to clamp right onto.
Neo+ Beacon – An avalanche transceiver with search bandwidth up to 70 meters. Easy.
Pro 240 Probe – A durable aluminum probe with ample length that is quick to assemble. Done.
Guard Shovel - A telescopic shaft and Y-handle, clocking in at a light 520g. Wh"Y" say more?
