Brooks-Range Backcountry Longneck Pro Shovel Reviews:


These shovels are absolutely awesome.
I have a Backcountry Pro Compact with a D-handle, not to be confused with the Compact-Pro. Yes, Backcountry sells four different Brooks Range shovels that look almost exactly the same, but the kicker is, Brooks Range will customize your shovel to your needs. Shark-tooth or straight edge? Long-neck or compact? D-handle or T-handle? Full size or compact blade? They have a full range of colors and do the crazy Chaos anodization if you want to be extra rad, bra.
My Brooks Range shovel has the best blade strength to weight ratio of any shovel I've owned. The shaft can be used with a pair of skis and poles to make a rescue sled. The handle can be locked at 90º if you're digging laterally. It's completely customizable. They'll even monogram it for you. And all of the options (except a $3 charge for monogramming) are available for the same price!
Seriously. Look past the hype of the big brands. Brooks Range makes these awesome shovels in the USA to keep your butt safe in the backcountry. Get one for yourself. Then, get one for your skiing buddies. After all, if you get buried, you'll want them to have the best shovel available in their hands when they're digging you out.

This is certainly the strongest avi shovel ive owned or seen. Great construction quality and breaks down to a reasonable size. Some people would complain its too large, but when you actually need it, it wont break and will move snow faster than anything else, and to me thats whats most important. Get it, it could save you or someone you care about's life.
