The ARVA EVO5 is the newest edition of EVO Series avalanche beacons. The EVO5 is a high performance, compact beacon that works great for anyone from experienced backcountry user to first-time skier/rider. The EVO5 has a 50m search range, a fast processor, and a backlit screen (a unique feature for an avy beacon). The beacon's software features a mark function, automatic revert-to-transmit function, group check mode, multiple burial indicator, and U-turn alarm. Weighing in at a scant 170g, this is an action-packed avalanche transceiver. Based out of France, ARVA has been making avalanche equipment for 35 years. This is the next step of development in their companion rescue equipment - faster, more compact, and easier to use.

I've gotten to know this beacon this year, it is really straight forward display and easy to use. Seems like a lot of thought went into the small design and features it has (forget it is in my pocket sometimes). In light of another model having issues with a switch this year I really like the confirming with a switch and button to turn it off so it never would be accidentally turned off in an accident.
