    As I stated in the picture I submitted, this shovel is not for avalanche rescue, it snapped the first time I used it for a beacon search in firm snow, snapped like a twig... It's fine for a car shovel but it's nothing more then that. Don't go cheapo on a lifesaving piece of emergency rescue gear, get a good shovel!

    Bought this shovel at a decent price for my first season in the backcountry. A year later I have to replace it.

    The good: The cost. The previous review?
    The okay: Its a shovel. Relatively lightweight.
    The bad: Its not aluminum. At your first avy class you'll see why metal is preferable. Sharper, and harder. Easier to cut through the snow pack.
    The ugly: One of the internal springs popped out and is a PITA to retrieve, rending the shovel rather useless. It happened as I was digging a pit.
    The other ugly: Multiple pieces = more to loose.

    Bottom line: Buy the single piece, aluminum shovel from Black Diamond.
