  • Ultra-lightweight (7oz) and compact when folded (16.5in), so you won't have a problem finding room in your pack for it
  • Avalanche gear benefits you and your party the most after you take an avalanche course and regularly practice your skills

Piece of crap. Very first time I tried it in in a test on the hill it snapped. Wasn't doing anything special, just trying to push it through some hard snow. Try some other product.
