It is one of the lightest metal shovels out there. Can't really go wrong for its weight and strength.
The handle may be short but that hasn't proved to be a problem. It packs down nicely for backcountry ski tours as well. Only complaint is that mine weighs 18.1 oz, which is over the manufacturer's specs of 16oz. I recommend this irregardless.

With slightly thicker insulation than its non-hooded counterpart the thermawrap jacket, this lightweight parka is amazing. I got it for my lady who is 5'5" and ~110lbs in a med due to its slightly small sizing. It is a bit heavier than its down cousin but adds a margin of safety in the chance of it getting wet. It weighs a scant 309g w/ its included 7g stuffsack on our digi. The construction is impeccable as are all the MB products that we have purchased. It has an adjustable hood, hem, and a triangle of stretch fabric at the cuffs, which all are very functional It is definitely not bomb-proof due to its lightweight nature though, so no bushwacking. Overall an outstanding parka.
