Special order items take longer to ship

We want to make extra-sure you realize that you've added a special order item to your cart. These items take a little longer to get to you because we have to order from the manufacturer first. The "Est. Ship Date" is the date we expect items to leave our warehouse... so add your chosen shipping speed to see when it will show up at your door.

The MSR Beta Saw is a snow saw for testing and analyzing the snow conditions up in the mountains. The 18.5 inch saw weighs in at only 7 ounces, fitting into your pack with ease thanks to the slim, flat blade. Don't worry, you won't have to jam it into your pack unprotected, it includes a welded sheath to prevent your pack and other gear from getting torn up along the way. As the aggressive teeth chaw their way through the snow, you won't have to guess the size of the column you're cutting, with 1mm and 3mm crystal grids laser-etched into the side, as well as a 30cm indicator. I hope that snow pack is ready for some serious skiing and adventuring.

FINAL SALE: For safety reasons, we cannot accept returns on load-bearing climbing equipment. Sorry for being so mean.

Product Reviews
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wasn't too impressed with the Wasn't too impressed with the overall construction. I thought the handle would have been a thicker material. For the money It should be more durable. Nice design, but overall, for just cutting snow its not bad, any other use is pointless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good saw. Worthless sheath Saw works well. The sheath is absolute garbage. Makes it hard to keep your bag safe from the teeth.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great saw, terrible cover! As others have noted, but I hoped wouldn’t actually be true - the cover for the actual saw is just a few cm short, so it leaves a few teeth exposed. Great saw, design flaw in the cover!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid product Works great. Lightweight, all the features needed, and fits easily in the probe sleeve.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs work As a light version of similar saws, it's ok with some drawbacks: -sheath does not cover the blade all the way. I put tape over the first few teeth so they won't cut my gear. -handle is at a goofy angle that makes ski-strapping the saw to a pole for ECT tests awkward / nonfunctional -coating was peeling off the handle before the saw was used in the field (not a big deal, but yet another missing detail) Overall I don't find this saw very functional in use compared to the other 3 saws I've used personally or at work, and would like to see the lightweight blade paired with a different handle design.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from buy another saw! this saw, at least the one I bought in europe is a cheap construction. Avoid buying it. I had my first saw replaced by the retailer but i received the same problematic construction. The case is smaller than the saw, leaving one tooth exposed. The case is different than the photo on msr website at a certain spot leaving a tooth exposed in your airbag pack or next to your expensive goretex jacket in the pack. The rubber on the handle is poorly glued or unglued. The durability of this saw is under question.
