This shovel is great. Easily to assemble and separate, and the "trench/hoe" function (long side of handle slots into shovel head) is great for rapidly moving volumes of softer snow. I'm quite lanky and still find the length when extended is good. Not the largest blade out there, but good compromise between volume and packability, and feels super solid. Have used Voile/BD/G3 and others, prefer this to all others so far.
