  • 3+ RECCO has the ability to analyze its vertical orientation when buried and transmit its signal on the transmitting antenna best positioned for searchers to pick up a signal
  • Most transceivers can only transmit on one antenna; by being able to transmit on two antennas, the 3+ has a consistent 40m range no matter what position it is buried in
  • The third antenna in the 3+ allows excellent precision and pinpoint search capabilities when you're zeroing in on a buried victim
  • Upon reaching a victim, the searcher can press the single button to mark the found victim and immediately set out for other snow burials by simply following the visual data
  • Internal RECCO reflector brings peace of mind by offering a backup means for finding a buried victim; more than 700 ski areas and rescue teams around the world use RECCO
  • RECCO reflector enhances radio signals from search-and-rescue RECCO detectors, helping speed up the search for a buried avalanche victim
  • Adjustable harness with case keeps the 3+ RECCO secure and accessible; operates on 1 AA battery
  • Sturdy Beast telescopic shovel weighs only 710g (1 lb. 9 oz.); 5052 aluminum blade and 6061 aluminum T6 shaft stand up to regular use
  • Shovel handle extends to 86cm (34 in.) to ease shoveling; compacts to 43cm (17 in.) to fit in your pack while touring
  • 240 Light PFA probe assembles quickly and weighs only 270g (9.5 oz.); centimeter markings on the probe help you determine depth of a burial
  • Probe is 240cm (7 ft. 10 in.) long when assembled; collapses down to 45cm (1 ft. 5 in.) for easy storage in a backpack
