I have had this shovel for 2 years. unfortunately I lost the shovel. Its been rated the Best. and fits easily on the backpack. I snowmobile and sometimes get a ski caught on a tree. Nice to have a strong saw. I am also with Search and Rescue. This shovel is strong and lightweight and makes digging in hard packed snow easy. The holes punches are great if you need to tie off and use as an anchor. Big plus I've noted in looking at other shovels is that is lifetime warranty!
