During an emergency, you don't want your equipment to fail.
The K2 Avalanche Probe Aluminum is lightweight but incredibly strong and stiff for in-field reliability, and the trigger Pull Handle and textured shaft make it simple and quick to set up and begin using immediately. Marked with 1cm increments, you can also measure snow pit depths before heading out.
Havent used on snow yet, however seems well designed and built. Practised assembling at home and is quick and easy to do so. I like that it comes in a protective pouch, to keep it from damaging my backpack.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
