Customer Reviews of BCA Snow Study Kit
I am a Mountaineering Instructor working in Scotland and presenting avalanche awareness training. I also ski off piste and on mountain tours for myself in Scotland and Europe.
This is a compact snow study kit with enough extra space and additional storage straps to personalise with extra items. Some may find it a little cramped storage wise but the essential items are included and with good personal organisation it is easy to use. Better to be compact than taking up too much space.
A tad expensive but being more avalanche aware is worth the money.
The BCA Snow Study Kit is good for what it is, way beyond novice level. It's a good idea if you're attending a Henry's Avalanche Talks (HAT). Also handy if touring a lot and digging hasty pits and Reutsch blocks every day. This is a bit of kit where a lot of knowledge is essential to get the best from it.
The case is an ideal size for side pouch or top pocket on most touring size bergans. I stress not for the novice, it will just confuse you.
