This shovel is light and unbreakable!
I accidentally backed over the shovel head of mine with the car back in 2001 and I still have it in my back country pack ready to go for 2009-2010 season. I doubt an aluminum piece could make that claim. Simply unbeatable.
If you know what Lexan plastic is you won't hesitate to get it. I even sharpen it with a file once in a while to keep it sharp for cutting snow easier.
I really like the Life Link products for back country use, and recommend them to anyone getting into serious winter hiking and riding.
I wish they had the Arva 3000 Transceiver in their avalanche transceiver list I would review it, as that is what I have use backcountry for more than 5 years, but have also used a Pieps, and an early model DTS tracker.
Thanks for reading.
