SnowClaw Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars It's easy to carry. It does work. I had two, gave one to another rescue worker. I like it very much. No problems, easy to carry, almost forget it's in my pack, but when I need it it makes any digging much quicker. Full review

SnowClaw Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars I find the Snow Claw an essential item for backcountry snow play. I am going to disagree with it not being an effective avalanche rescue tool. I researched these long and hard before buying one. Some rescue crews report having tested them directly against standard $75 portal avalanche shovels. They were in fact surprised to find them more durable, faster at moving snow, and easier to carry. Furthermore they were found to be the superior tool at getting cars and trucks dug out of snow banks. Typical… Full review

SnowClaw Guide

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A great must-have tool, for snow travelers of every kind. When I started doing a little bit of front and back country snowshoeing several years ago, I saw this and thought it would be a great thing to have. And for twenty bucks, why not?? It is a very easy to use "shovel," and moves a fair amount of snow easily and quickly. It is effective in most snow conditions, except for really icy situations. I have had it since they first came out, and it is still in like-new condition.  I especially like… Full review

Voile Mini Shovel

rated 5 of 5 stars If you are going winter camping and not carrying one of these (or a comparable model), you are not carrying an essential winter survival tool. The Voile Mini is one of several small snow shovels that anyone winter camping on snow should carry. This is not a full size shovel, but for all that I have done with it, it was the perfect size. I would take mine even on day trips. It is fairly light, has a metal blade, and is well made. The handle comes apart and fits back together easily. It can be used… Full review

Lifeline Alum Sport Utility Shovel

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Lifeline Sport utility shovel may be sold at places like Fred Meyer and WalMart, but don’t let its cheap price fool you. This is an excellent shovel. It is often marketed for auto and snowmobile use. But don’t let that fool you. It is just as, if not more, capable than many shovels many times its price, not to mention a lot lighter. I would highly recommend this to anyone needing a good low cost lightweight backcountry shovel. Works excellent in making snow caves. When I bought this I was… Full review

SnowClaw Guide

rated 2 of 5 stars Having seen but never owned a Snow Claw this is not a review but a warning: NEVER substitute a Snow Claw for a shovel when traveling in avalanche terrain. There is simply no comparison in the amount of snow moved. Full review

SnowClaw Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars YES! Long story turned short, I dug out a snow cave with one of these. It is awesome. Moves a lot of snow, but not as much a conventional backcountry shovel. Totally worth it though. Full review

Voile TelePro Shovel

rated 5 of 5 stars It changed my life. I can't believe how incredibly awesome this shovel is. I can't imagine my life without it! Full review

SnowClaw Guide

rated 5 of 5 stars When I was a kid growing up on the beaches of San Diego, I would always use a strong frisbee to dig holes on the beach. It was much faster and more powerful than any of my friends using a shovel. I was in the market for a shovel this winter, and noticed this innovative item as an alternative to a snow shovel at REI. I was able to test this powerful tool in crusted snow and 4 feet of powder alike last weekend on a snowshoe trip. It is so much easier to use in all but the most icy of snow conditions. Full review
