Got this shovel, was going to get the BD Deploy 3 shovel, but thought it would be too small. This fits in my Dakine Poacher Pack, with room to spare. I wanted this shovel because the handle really compacts. So I don't have to carry my handle on the outside, and having the chance of it getting ripped off. Also I don't even have to take the handle of which is important in those situations. Seems like a great shovel, which has great durability. And i'm sure it will last forever. If you want a great compact shovel that you can leave the handle on in almost any pack get this you'll love it.
this shovel deploys super quick. i think that's where they got the name from. but if you're actually trying to dig someone out, a fast, foolproof system could make the difference. simply depress the button that holds it in place (easy to do with gloves), pull back on the handle, and start digging. another button on the shaft locks it in the extended position.
only complaint is that the handle sticks out a couple inches from the blade which makes it harder to pack. not really a conplaint though cause i got the shovel to dig quick, not fit nicely in my bag.
Excellent design for a Compact shovel. No reason to not carry one in your car due to its handle design. In fact, the first weekend that we had it was one where two feet of overnight wet snow got us stuck pulling out of the driveway. This was tested immediately and has a solid scoop that does not flex much.
Nice shovel. Light and folds up nice and small. I could fit it in my Bandit pack but it was tight. Probably not the best if you had to dig pits all day due to the short handle. Ended up with the Deploy 3 based on the type of terrain I normally skill and my tolerance for risk.
