ORTOVOX ZOOM+ TRANSCEIVER REVIEW

Price: £180
Dimensions: 117x80x24mm
Weight: 285g

Far from being an accessory, a transceiver is actually an essential piece of safety equipment – at least if you’re planning on venturing off piste. Ortovox are one of the best-known and best-respected makers of transceivers, or avalanche beepers, in the business, this is their entry level model.

As well as all the usual functions you’d expect from a transceiver like the universally compatible search and emit modes, this has no fewer than three antennas, making pinpointing avalanche victims easier and quicker. There are also other features like the ‘automatic switchover’ to emit mode if the user is buried in a secondary avalanche, and lights to indicate multiple burials. There are more sophisticated transceivers out there (Ortovox’s very own S1 is one of the finest) but in our opinion this is the best option at this price point. Perfect if you’re starting to venture into the backcountry for the first time.
