Source: bought it new
Price Paid: Don't recall
Been a durable dependable camp tool for over 10 years. It has taken its share of abuse with rock, roots and hard ground and shows no real sign of any plastic fatigue.
- Light weight
- Strong material
- Orange color makes it easy to find
- A luxury item many backpackers find unecessary
This is one of our camp staples, both for car camping and backpacking. I find it more convenient than trying to find a stick that's strong enough to dig in our rocky CO soil or using the heel of my boot. Plus when you gotta go, sometimes you gotta go and it's nice to just have the tool right there.
It has worked for us for more than 10 years and I can see it going another 10.
I didn't really expect much from such a low-cost item…
I didn't really expect much from such a low-cost item but it has been durable during camping trips as well as working in the garden. It seems to be about the same weight as other trowels that I have seen. I like the orange color, it makes it easy to find.
