Positive Reviews:

After getting my first Voile pro shovel about 12 years ago I got one of these little G3 shovels for free when I bought a new avy beacon about 4 seasons ago. At first I was very sceptical- the small size made me think that it was less effective and therefore a liability.
After some time I've realised that having a shovel with a bigger blade will not make you more immune to avalanches, sure you might be able to move snow slightly quicker (assuming that you have both a good shovelling technique, are familiar with concepts like the "strategic shovelling strategy" and are physically strong) than someone with this shovel. But personally I tend to pick my lines more conservatively- if I think there's a chance that I'm going to have to dig a buddy out, then I'll opt to ski a different, safer line.
I still sometimes bring along my Voile shovel with the larger blade, because yes I can move snow faster with it and if I'm planning on digging a sh*tload of observation pits then it makes most sense. But for 80% of my touring I bring the G3 spadetech- because the weight savings and decreased size are worth it in my opinion.

Great little shovel.If you want light and want to free up room in your pack, here it is.In summer, I even eliminate part of the handle for less weight.Ideal design for digging snow pits and profiles.

I went on a summer ski mountaineering trip late July and this was the perfect tool for the job....Packed well in my pack....Perfect for penetrating hard snow conditions....

Negative Reviews:

this thing is little bigger than a trowel. take your friends' lives seriously and get a proper size shovel that can move more snow.
