This fits perfectly into my CamelBak Snoblast. Not looking for a true backcountry shovel - more for making some small jumps or small digging. This is perfect for the job. Good size and the extension makes it a little more bearable. Great quality shovel - and I like the handle design. It was this or the deploy 7 and I went with this for the longer handle and bigger shovel since I wasn't worried about space in my pack.
