      Comments about BCA Tracker3 Avalanche Beacon:

      I was able to experience using this tracker during on the snow avalanche training. It was incredibly easy to use. The search mode was very accurate and efficient in finding another buried tracker. The switch to change from Transmit to search was very easy to access and change. It is very sleek, light weight and easy to secure.

        Comments about BCA Tracker3 Avalanche Beacon:

        A good beacon can't replace knowledge and good backcountry sense. That said this beacon is my favorite so far! It is easy to use, fast, and very intuitive. I took it out for the first time in the back yard and figured it out almost immediately (my previous beacon was a mammut pulse). The harness it comes with holds it in perfectly on my body without being to bulky or in the way. It is worth reading the user manual though, I like my beacon to auto revert (go back to transmit after certain amount of time without movement, helpful in the case of a secondary avalanche), this one doesn't come preprogramed to auto revert but it is an option just takes reading the manual. Overall a great buy at a great price. Have fun out there!

              The Tracker3 is one of the best 3 antennae beacons in the market - super simple operation, lightweight and reliable, without overly complicated or unnecessary features. The harness system is one of the best out there and it's low profile is a big improvement over the Tracker 2.

                  Comments about BCA Tracker3 Avalanche 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!

                      Upgraded from the tracker2, the 3 is smaller, fits better and has faster, more accurate searching. Well worth the purchase. Batteries last forever in transmit mode and searching was very easy with the arrows and distance even for beginners to use.
