That weak rime layer two feet below the snow's surface may or may not be getting worse. Only by pulling out the Brooks Range Folding Magnifier X10 and getting a closer look can you really tell if the crystals are beginning to bond. An essential piece of a snow scientist's kit, this magnifier unfolds and lets you get a 10X look at the snow so you can more accurately access and forecast the avalanche danger for your touring party.

Standard Lens Bonus Case
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is my preference between the common X10 folding magnifiers. The tool is very sturdy and like Alex mentioned it comes with a nice little case to protect the lens even further from scratches. Cant go wrong with this for your snow study kit.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I had the BCA version of this a couple years ago and lost it. I was sad, but then I saw this one...and to be honest I can't think of any differences between them, except that this one comes with a pouch. Score!
