Brooks-Range Backcountry Longneck Pro
Here's what other sites are saying:
With the longest shaft of any backcountry shovel, the Brooks-Range Backcountry Longneck Pro Shovel gives you the leverage you need when you perform a rescue, dig a pit, or fortify your camp. This shovel is also recommended by the AIARE (The American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education). The Pro's aluminum blade has the strength and durability needed to shovel out a victim, deadman holes allow for use as an emergency anchor, and the two-piece shovel shaft can double as stretcher bars with the Brooks-Range Mountaineering Rescue Sled.
