IF you’re more into backcountry than ‘slackcountry’ you should be packing a saw, and the G3 Bonesaw is a cut above the rest.
The offset teeth can cut snow, ice, and even wood to make a fire or floor for your snowcave.
It comes with a durable sheath for easy carrying, and can be strapped onto just about anything (ski pole, probe, shovel, your mate’s wrist) to cut cornices or anything at greater than arm’s length.
The sheath stops it damaging other things in your pack, and it includes several tools, including three grid sizes to make half of your snow research kit obsolete.
Don’t even consider any other saw.
