Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slim, Simple, and Speedy I've been a BCA Tracker user for well over a decade, so I'm a bit biased, and very familiar with the technology. Mostly because I've had great success with the tracker beacons and also because I crave simple solid gear for my clients and myself. It's fast & reliable like the T-1 and T-2's, and it's now got the ability to deal with multiple burials with a bit more ease. The T3 has also gotten a bit smaller and lighter! (who isn't a fan of that) Which means when I tether and stow it in my zipped front pant pocket it's less noticeable. When choosing a piece of emergency gear I'm VERY picky, and I have no patience for waiting on a slow beacon or a complicated one...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fastest Beacon! I began using the Tracker 3 at the beginning of last season. I used it multiple times in the backcountry and also while on 2 heli trips. In the process I practiced with it multiple times and was involved in multiple beacon drills. The easy to use format and quick thinking computer made this beacon the fastest in all the drills I did. I adjusted right away to the format and feel very comfortable with it. The size and carry system are also very comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Beacon Out There Small, easy to use, efficient and makes awesome noises! I love my new Tracker 3. BCA really stepped it up with this newest model. Even easier to use and works great. You can barely feel it while skiing and hiking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from latest and greatest I have been using the tracker 3 for two seasons, teaching AIARE avalanche courses, and in normal backcountry situations. This beacon is the newest technology that fits into a slim device that doest it all. I find that my search times have gotten better with this beacon, and it does the job the first time. I am very happy with this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Beacon Easy to use, picks up signals quickly and accurately. Compact package makes it super easy to wear while skiing. Never had to really use it besides practice in the parking lot, but it always excels. Definitely recommend it for the small price jump over the Tracker 2.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from An OK beacon I bought this beacon to replace my dying BCA Tracker. It's ok. The switch is kind of finicky and the screen is hard to see sometimes. I think I'm going to try another model.
