This is a rippen value. Appears and feels almost as quality as the name brands. The blade is on the smaller side about the size of the most compact avy shovels. The shaft telescopes in 2 parts. This would be a good backup shovel for a cabin or car, to loan to a guest or in case someone forgot their regular avy shovel. The bright yellow is a good choice for keeping track. I'll carry this while on the groomed ski trails; when near, but not exposed to, avy terrain in case someone up the slopes has an emergency.
- Atmosphere: Lowbagger
