Emergencies? Never again!
Honestly, this shovel is wonderful! My housemate got her Jeep stuck in a large snow bank, and we used this shovel to clear out the snow from around the tires and also from under the car. The compact design makes it easy to store and transport. The durable design means that it won't fall apart like other flimsy so-called "emergency" shovels. It stays in the trunk of my car at all times. This is definitely an essential item.
