Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
A rapid-deployment shovel for backcountry use, the Deploy 7 has a trapezoidal shaft that locks in place with a quick pull, so you don't waste time putting things together when you need to be digging.
Built for backcountry travelers and first responders, these shovels deploy instantaneously for emergency situations. Utilizing Black Diamond's trapezoidal, curved-shaft design, they provide rotation-free, fast activation with the squeeze of a spring pin. For integrated storage the shaft slides into the metal blade, which is made of exceptionally strong aluminum and designed to move large quantities of snow quickly as well as for creating smooth pit walls. The Deploy 3 incorporates all the features of the Deploy 7 but with a smaller volume blade. The ergonomic handle feels like a D-grip but packs like a T-grip.
