For women looking for a lighter, more compact shovel to use in the backcountry, the G3 Women's SpadeTech Elle Shovel gets the job done with a bit more finesse. For most women, more efficient shoveling techniques make up for a lack of oxen-level strength when digging pits or practicing burial excavations. With the SpadeTech Elle's smaller blade and plastic T-handle, you can use these techniques with a shovel that fits your smaller frame and arm span. Durable aluminum lasts for years and punches through icy debris thanks to a curved blade and handle-to-blade design that transfers more power directly to the blade's tip.
The SpadeTECH shovel was designed for versatility and durability. Then G3 noticed women gravitating to this shovel. Of course! The compact design fits easily into a womens proportionally smaller pack. The reduced size of the blade allows women to move snow with technique rather than brute strength. G3 added a splash of colour along with their WOMENS COLLECTION signature artwork and created a new shovel; the SpadeTECH elle. Its the perfect match for the women who use it; sleek, stylish and strong.

Those features and a snazzy color makes the G3 Womens SpadeTECH Alpinist Elle Shovel the worlds first specially designed for her.
