The longest section is the tip w/point and it's 17.5". The ripstop bag is 19". This probe is quick to set up, and light to run with. ~10 oz. I bent section2 on a rock but I was jammin it, and was able to straighten it back out over my knee instantly. Good probe.
I've ridden them about 15 times, and they're really comfortable. The break in is holding up really well, no popped seams or weird folds and pack out is minimal. No funk (yet), and they clean up nice. I like em.
