The BCA B1 180 Probe is a tough and light 180cm aluminium probe with wire cable and threaded lock nut tension system. This is the most compact probe we sell, easily able to fit into even the smallest day pack.
At only 180cm it's a bit shorter than your average probe but that's the trade off for the compact design.
Note: Even though you can keep your B1 probe in your B1 shovel handle, we don't think it's a good idea to. It's a pain to get it out of the handle, and there is the potential to easily waste time trying to do this in an emergency.

I bought this pole as part of a package with face west. It is a great price for a short probe (185 cm rather than 180cm!) which is only really useable with a transceiver for final location rather than general search. It feels almost like a tent pole, although the locking mechanism is reasonably robust. You have to grip a fairly small spindle to do it up which could be tricky with cold hands and somewhat surprisingly there is no case so you'll need to buy some elastic bands to keep it together in your pack!
A no nonsense probe with a good cable locking system, Does fit in the B1 shovel shaft but obscures the clip holes ( see my B1 shovel review) nice and light but also feels sturdy.
