This little shove is not only light, but brilliant as well!
I was amazed, despite it's size, at how well this little shovel could dig!
In fact it was quite a life saver since it was used to build a temp snow cave to get out a recent sierra snowstorrn. The amazing thing is regardless of the lack of a longer handle the shovel still performed, and due to it's metal structure, the shovel withstood fair bit of abuse without any signs of stress.
If looking for a excellent lightweight backcountry snow shovel, this is the one!
