U-Dig-It Folding Hand Shovel and Trowel
Price Paid: $9
The Cordura sheath is beefy, eliminating any worries of the point damaging any of my gear. It folds easily, and the blade is sharp and durable.
Field tested personally and it works very well, much better in fact than my previous plastic one. The hard ground in SoCal doesn't care how badly you have to go, and having a strong Stainless Steel blade has been a relief in certain situations (no pun intended).
Ditto to the first review. Western desert and mountains don't like the orange plastic shovel that is so popular in camping stores. One metal shovel per group is a must.
