Good for Backcountry

We’ve never really liked previous integrated probe-shovel combos—they’ve been either short (the probe), cumbersome (getting it out of the shaft of the shovel), or both. The Arsenal is different. The ten-inch-wide blade and sturdy aluminum construction can move serious snow. And the seven-foot-ten-inch 240 probe is really well designed: Simply release the center portion of the shovel handle, yank on the first link to lock it up tight in seconds, and away you probe. 1.9 lbs with probe. backcountryaccess.com
