Black Diamond Avalanche Safety Deploy 7 Shovel BD1021860000ALL1. When its time to stash the Deploy in your pack the curved handle slides down and hugs the contours of the blade to take up minimal space.
A rapid-deployment shovel for backcountry use, the Deploy 7 has a trapezoidal shaft that locks in place with a quick pull, so you don't waste time putting things together when you need to be digging.
Black Diamond designed the Deploy 7 Shovel to fit efficiently in your pack, with a collapsible handle that nestles inside the blade for efficient use of space. It's made of tough, light aluminum, and features a hybrid D/T handle for comfort and efficient digging, making it perfect for everyday backcountry missions, small snowpits, and digging in tight spots.
