A good piece of equipment that gets the job done well. I have only used it in practice burials so far, but if I were buried, i would'nt have a problem with my rescuers using this shovel to dig me out. The blade is nice and stiff and a good compromise between size and weight. The angled handle end is comfy, but can be a bit fussy when trying to secure it to the outside of a pack. Also, the blade doesn't slide well at all, so butt-shovel-sleds are a no go.

The blade on this thing is massive!! It may be noticably heavier than other shovels, but if that means I will be able to get to a victim faster by moving more snow then I think carrying the extra weight is worth it. The only negative - On more than one occasion when carrying the disasembled handle on the outside of a pack I have witnessed that the male end of the shovel (the end you attach to the blade) can become packed with enough snow to prevent the user from depressing the button that locks the handle and blade together, thus rendering your shovel useless. All you need is an end covering (duct tape or whatever) to prevent snow from being packed into the handle. With that solved I would give it 4 stars.

Got this probe as part of a set last winter. Thankfully I have yet to use it in an actual burial, however in the nurmerous practice sessions I have done it has functioned flawlessly. I'm a big fan of the PFA assembly - all you gotta do is give a yank on the T-bar and the sections pop into place. I would give it 5 stars, but I'll wait till i have to use it when it counts for a rating like that.
