Backcountry Access A1 Shovel and Saw

rated 4.0 of 5 stars

The shovel itself is great: strong construction, easily collapsible, and the extension feature makes it perfect for snow caving. Now I am able to build both the tunnel and the cave with one shovel. Before I needed two types; a short shovel and a long. If you build many caves, this is the shovel you need.

The saw, however, is a different story. I was cutting off a branch (about one inch in diameter) and the saw broke in half. I continued to use the remaining part of the saw and it broke again. It didn’t last more than one minute of real use. Fortunately, it will be relatively easy to put a real saw on the thing.
