I was able to use this on the second field day of my Avalanche Safety 1 course. The locking mechanism should be practiced since it isn't as easy as other probes that we used in the course. This product seems a bit flimsier than the probes the instructors lent out, but it should hold up for non extended use. A nice feature is the alternating colors for reach rod segment so that you don't have to think about looking at the depth measurement lines when probing for a victim.
