Get your backcountry adventures started out right (or upgrade all your old kit in one fell swoop) with this high-quality avalanche safety package. Simple and streamlined, the Recon BT is equipped with all the features you need for efficient, accurate searches in the event of an avalanche burial. An ergonomic housing and soft-touch contact points make the transceiver comfortable and straightforward to use, and handy Bluetooth functionality allows you to manage device setting and software upgrades via the PIEPS mobile app. The intuitive display features large arrows and easy-to-interpret multiple burial indicators, and the large, central button lets you easily mark a located signal so you can move on to the next in multiple burial scenarios. The included Transfer 3 shovel and Quickdraw 240 probe are lightweight, durable and easy to use, and offer fantastic value as part of this set.
