With no shortage of bells and whistles, the carbon LockJaw pole is a versatile backcountry poker. Its length can be easily adjusted, a bubble-vial inclinometer on the handle makes gauging slope angle a cinch, and a snow-depth ruler offers a tool for measuring layers in a snowpack. Even better, the poles can be connected to build a 196-centimeter-long avalanche probe for snowpack searches in an emergency.
