Nice & light
I just tried this shovel out this last weekend 3-13-2010. Temps got down to single digits and we had 15" of snow one night. The shovel worked flawlessly, never froze up and everyone wanted to use it. I had a Snow Claw on the last trip but the shovel works better, although heavier its more versatile. I also like the bright green color goes with my pack, and is easy to find in low visibility conditions. The only con would be that it is a little short and the handle doesn't collapse into the shovel for storage, but for the weight and how it performs I really can't complain. LOVE THIS LITLE SHOVEL !!
