Half and half
I bought this shovel because my old one didn't fit well in my pack. Or more accurately, it did not fit the way I wanted it to fit in my pack. This one didn't either. The blade is a great size and fits great, the handle was too long however, by just an inch. Luckily the handle fell out of my pack one day after a bad tumble, so I bought a replacement collapsible T handle and now I have the perfect shovel!!!
