When you're skinning uphill in the backcountry, every ounce counts. Thankfully, PIEPS 's new, cell-phone-size FREERIDE avalanche transceiver weighs less than four ounces. Designers shrank it by cutting out beginner-friendly directional antennae, but that's a boon for advanced users, who won't even notice this beacon until they need it. $200; pieps.com
