Rated 5 out of 5 by snowman from Could not ask for more I love this beacon. I need to wear a beacon every day for work (ski patrol), so I did a lot of shopping around and asked some very knowledgeable people to help me find the best beacon for the best price. I landed on the Pieps Ice (which is very similar to the Pieps Pro). It is very straightforward and easy to use. It is also very powerful and functionally sound. I do beacon drills about once per week and love how it performs. It has been awesome to getting to know this beacon. The harness is also top notch. I wear it all day and have had no issues. I don't usually write reviews, but for me personally, the look and the feel of this beacon has been so much better than some of the other beacons I've tried out. My only complaint is the cord attaching the beacon to the harness is only 1 ft long! It's really hard to do a fine grid search with it so close to your body without undoing the harness. But all I had to do was elongate it with some sturdy cord. Not an issue now.
