The BCA T3 Rescue Package is a smart purchase for those looking to gear up for their first backcountry experience, or experienced backcountry travellers wanting to replace their old outdated equipment.
The BCA DTS Tracker 3 has an efficient and progressive industrial design, making it the most developed of BCA's Tracker range.
The T3’s foundation is still built around the industries' fastest, most precise pinpointing and instantaneous real-time display. However, the Tracker 3 is now 30 per cent smaller and lighter than the Tracker 2
If skiers are caught out by an avalanche, their companions in the vicinity have their work cut out. They have to locate the victims and dig them out as quickly as possible. The chances of survival diminish rapidly after 18 minutes of burial in the snow. Using a transceiver can radically reduce search times, thus increasing the chances of a successful rescue.
The BCA DTS Tracker 3 is a very good advance in transceiver design. The device weighs only 170 grams and is very small and easy to carry (BCA’s goal was the size of a modern Smartphone).
In search mode, it tells you if you have 1, 2 or multiple victims and whether they are in close proximity.
There is a button that you can push that gives you a 'big picture' of the search and allows you to review all signals received in the case of multiple burials, helping the user to direct a search if working with other rescuers.
When you let the button go it locks back on the closest victim. Once you get to the first victim, you can suppress this signal and you will then lock onto the next closest victim.
New features include BCA’s no-nonsense markings for multiple burials and a special Multi-Burial Button that can switch between or suppress any signal in any direction in a multi-burial situation.
The foundation on the BCA DTS Tracker 3 is still built around the original Tracker Technology which provides the industry’s fastest, most precise pinpointing and instantaneous real-time display.
