Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Over the years I've ended up with 4 avy shovels and this is by far my favorite! It's light enough to get packed every time, and can move snow. I've never had to dig anyone out, but we did use the entrenching function clearing snow for a snow-cave and I won't have another shovel without it.
