Mammut Expert Probe

   Photo: Mammut

Your probe should be sturdy and quick to deploy. We like this aluminum one because it slides easily through varying densities of snow, weighs very little, and is 80 centimeters longer than the average probe. The extra length helps not only in rescue situations but when crossing glaciated terrain, too.
