Here's what other sites are saying:
Lightweight shovel made from annealed and anodized aluminum.
The Alugator Light is Mammut's lightest avalanche shovel. It weighs less than a can of soda and can fit into any small daypack. The sharpened, tiltproof blade is made from super-robust anodized aluminum, while the attachment holes mean it is easier to construct a snow anchor or rescue sled. The telescopic shaft has an oval profile. This makes the Alugator even more robust.

Mammut made the Alugator Light Shovel for backcountry skiers and snowboarders who want to shave every possible ounce from their kit without losing function. It's nice to take a 21. 2oz shovel into the hills, but you don't want to give up your ability to save your friend. Aluminum construction helps you cut through tough avalanche debris when it really counts. Mammut also included an extendable handle to give you better leverage for digging test pits.
