Quick assembly
It's a good quality, lightweight probe. The depth markings are clear, and the probe assembles very quickly in the event of an avalanche/emergency. As the description says, you just pull the loop and each section slides into place and locks very easily. It also has a good, sensitive feel to it when probing for crevasses.
