Rated 5 out of 5 by Jake from A lot of bang for your buck BD and Pieps have put together quite a bargain. The Pieps beacon is a great unit. I've had students in AIARE courses use mine for the first time with ease. The shovel is great and the probe has been bullet proof. If you're looking for a new Avy set up, look no further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tre Snow from A big value on a kit suited to DEEP snowpacks As a snowboarding team coach in the Cascade mountains of WA I wanted an Avy gear kit that included a shovel large enough to build bc kickers and a probe long enough to do the deep searches that are a challenge in PNW snowpacks. Add in the signal strength and patrol level features of the Pro beacon and it has been an ideal purchase for me. BD has delivered on the quality they have a reputation for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Neil from Great adventure kit All you need for adventure! The beacon is top notch and seems to do better than anyone I train with. The shovel converts to your preference. The probe is super light and quick to use! This is a quality setup for those wanting to carry equipment that won't fail you when you will need it. All fits in my 16L bag with room for my other essentials.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Grandville from Avy kit This kit is a must have for any serious backcountry enthusiast. The only problem I have is with the shovel. When using the shovel snow sticks to it making harder to clean snow off the shovel as well when you put it back in your pack getting everything else wet in pack. The shovel needs a smooth paint finish not a anodized finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeff from Perfect Combo of Gear. I love the multi-search simplicity with the Pieps DSP Pro. Simple, fast, and effective. One small but awesome detail is this beacon's harness, which has a strap which 'ejects' the beacon from the harness for quick use. Shovel is light and has a large comfortable handle for quick/effective snow removal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tyler from Great Package of Equipment to Help Stay Safe Great way to get the equipment you need to add a vital safety layer in the Backcountry. Save a few bucks from buying it separately. Beacon is easy to use, probe and shovel are bomber. Great job BD

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cyril from Great Combo! I have a number of the older Pieps DSP transceivers and wanted to try the new DSP Pro for myself after talking to a friend who owns a Heli-ski company in British Columbia. Their fleet consists of the DSP Pro for the guides and the DSP sport for the guests. Although I have only used it a few times to practice so far this winter, I was impressed with the range and how well I was able to lock on to the flux line and home right in quickly on my fine search. It seems pretty intuitive so far. I have had limited opportunity to try the other special functions to date. The harness is a definite step up from the older DSP. The only limitation with the harness in my opinion is that when the transceiver is attached to the built-in retractable lanyard it is difficult for me to reach down to the snow level. For that reason I have opted to attach and use the wrist lanyard that comes with the transceiver. As for the shovel and probe, I am a big fan of both the Evac 7 and quickdraw carbon probe and now have one of each permanently living in both my ski touring and Heli-ski packs. I am completely sold on dual-capability shovels that can operate in both traditional shovel as well as hoe modes.
