All the avalanche essentials are together at last.

The first essential when it comes to backcountry skiing and riding is education. The second? The Backcountry Access Tracker 2 Avalanche Package. This kit includes the Tracker 2 Beacon, B-1 EXT Shovel, and Stealth 270 Probe in one ready-to-go package. The Tracker 2 beacon features an intuitive search interface and speedy signal recognition—just pull the mechanical handle at the bottom of the beacon and you're ready to make use of the Tracker's 50-meter range, multiple-burial indicators, and distance-and-direction indicators.

Keeping the Tracker 2 company are the B-1 EXT Shovel and Stealth 270 probe. The B-1 is compact and lightweight, with a telescopic aluminum blade and ergonomic T-grip handle. As you can probably tell by the name, the Stealth 270 Probe is all about sneaking up on the mountain before it even knows you're there, with 270cm of aluminum lightness and durability that sports depth markings and a Quick-Lock assembly so you don't waste time setting up when seconds become precious.

Please remember that beacons, shovels, and probes are NOT a guarantee that you will survive an avalanche; get educated, learn how to use your tools, travel with trustworthy partners, and be smart out there.

Great Package

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This was my first year in the backcountry and was the perfect kit for me. The Tracker 2 is super easy to use and has a long lasting battery life. The shovel is the perfect size for my The North Face Powder Guide Vest. This lightweight and durable kit is perfect for users of all abilities.

Starter Kit to Rule them all.

When it comes to back country travel safety is a necessity. This package give you piece of mind while keeping it light weight and affordable. It seems like the best of both worlds to me. I got this pack for a trip I was taking to the Northern cascades. with Snow dumping down all around me The Tracker 2 55m range is more then enough as me and my travel companion tested our gear along the way. with ease of use and comfortable body strap I forgot I was wearing it many times. The Shovel was light weight and held up to the use for digging snow pits and digging in snow to set some anchors. The probe assembled fast and was easy to break down. all in all this Is the go to for safety with a great price

Great backcountry starter kit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

My husband and I both got this kit so that we could start heading into the backcountry and it was perfect. The Tracker 2 is super easy and quick to use. It’s pretty much foolproof. And the shovel and probe were nice too. This is a great kit for getting started, especially if you can snag it on sale.

Great Kit

Getting into the back-country scene? This is a great kit to get you started!

awesome package and the perfect gift

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

This is an amazing package for any one looking to kickstart their backcountry kit or re up on some older gear. I personally got this as a gift for my brother to get his kit going for the simplicity of the tracker 2 and its ease of use for new users. The shovel and probe are also awesome for any kit , the shovel fits in any pack and the quickdraw probe is easy to use!

Great

I am new to backcountry and am excited to become more knowledgeable using this equipment. Luckily I have not had to use it! This package is great to get started and is all super easy to pack on your backpack/body. My friend got the tracker 3 and it is smaller and lighter, but the tracker 2 is just as functionable. I recommend getting this package to start off your backcountry gear.

Haven't Used It Yet, But...

I tested this with my cat and I was able to locate her within 5 meters. I love the color of the shovel, it is solid.

You buried your cat in snow?

Liked it enough to buy it twice

    I bought this avalanche package for myself and then decided to get it again for my brother when he started getting into alpine touring. Great all-in-one safety setup, perfect for beginners: the price point is good, the beacon is simple and easy to use.

    I've been skiing for years but am pretty new to touring. First thing to get before you go into the backcountry? Avalanche safety gear. I got this package because of the ease of use of the beacon. Plus I'm a little old school so I don't mind having a little larger beacon and using the harness with it. I barely even notice I have it on when I'm touring. The shovel and probe are lightweight and super easy to use as well. BCA has been in the game for years and it definitely shows with this package. Be safe out there!

    Everything you need

      This is an awesome kit. Everything is simple, well made and compact. Highly recommend this kit!

      Awesome package

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This avalanche package offers tons of value. For not much more than you'd pay for the beacon you get a shovel and probe.

      The shovel is small and packs easily in most packs. The one drawback to this is it won't move massive amounts of snow in one pull. The Probe is plenty long and should be long enough for all but the deepest snowpacks. The tracker 2 is proven to be one of the easiest and most reliable beacons on the market.

      Make sure you practice with your gear. Knowing where and when to go into the backcountry is more important that owning the gear.

      Beacon, shovel, and probe?

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      In one package?? WOW! talk about one stop shop. In all seriousness, the tracker 2 is easy to use and reliable. Shovel and probe work as they should as well. The probe probes and the shovel shovels. Not the lightest or the fanciest of shovels/probes out there, but will get the job done.

      first backcountry kit!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I'm just getting into splitboarding, so I needed a set up. I went with this kit and I'm glad I did! The beacon is just as advertised. It's very simple to use and comes with a nice harness. It works great in drills, so I am confident it would work perfectly in a rescue situation. It definitely meets BCA quality! The shovel is lightweight and easy to use. The strength to weight ratio is superb. The probe extends and retracts very smoothly. You can poke around in snow for hours due to it's extremely lightweight aluminum design. This is an all around great package to get you out there simply and most importantly SAFELY!

      Crazy Light

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Perfect for my needs. The tracker 2 is a tad easier to use than the 3 with more reliability than the 1. I was super pumped on how light the entire setup was which leaves me more room and saves weight for those longer tours.
