Positive Reviews:

This shovel stays with my pack so I can easily grab it on a big snow day accessed from the resorts. However, that pack does stay in the back of my truck when not in use, and this shovel has dug out myself, friends, and plenty of mountain tourists out of the ditch as well as early morning truck evacuations from the previous nights snow fall.Not the lightest, but Ill gladly trade that for a larger blade to move more snow.

Yea it is a shovel and yea they all do the same thing. Or do they? I have used many a shovel and I really like this one. It is not the lightest shovel out there but it can dig with a shovel twice its weight and size. I snowmobile a lot and therefore get stuck a lot which means a lot of shoveling. This thing moves the heavy crap, cuts great pits and stash's in a nice small package.

First impression very well made, strong, collapses to a very small size. own the B1 too this one is much bigger on the shovel size. ++++

Neutral Reviews:

Durable, simple, well-designed...but take away those stupid ribs.
Pluses:
+ Nice size and shape
+ Great handle (bright, good angle)
+ Flat-ish shovel blade makes it easier to have flat pit walls
Deltas:
- Even with the new end-caps, the extendable handle still freezes up way more than my old BD shovel
- The strengthening "ribs" on the blade make it look tough, but they make unsightly marks on my pit walls -- using this shovel makes it significantly more difficult to achieve my anal-retentive-standard smooth pit walls for layer ID.

Maybe I just got a bad batch, but the end cap was missing after a few days, the shaft filled with snow, and their is some seamless missing. A burly shovel, but I've been turning to my Voile Telepro instead of this newer and easier-cutting blade. Once some issues are fixed it will be a nice shovel for big guys moving plenty of snow.
