diggin' this shovel
This shovel is durable and light for the price. The telescoping handle makes it easy to dig with and even easier to carry on your back or in your pack. The pre-drilled holes and slats in the grip make setting up webbing straps a piece of cake. The shovel has held up through drills, dog holes, snow pits, and deck projects. I've had a couple issues with the spring pins in the handle getting jammed a few times, but not where it hooks to the blade.
