Here's what other sites are saying:
Before you venture into the backcountry, be sure to throw the Arva Ovo Compact TS Shovel in your touring pack. With a weight of just 1. 5lb, the shovel won't weight you down. But when it comes time to dig a pit, or rescue your partner, you'll be glad you have it. A lightweight polycarbonate blade saves on weight and is partially serrated to efficiently slice through snow. A telescoping handle adds an extra five inches of length to the shaft for a more comfortable shoveling feel when you're digging a pit or constructing a snow cave.
