I bought this shovel online so I didnt have the benefit of looking at it first. Frankly, since it was a Voile, I thought it would do fine.
- The T handle is not as nice as the D Handle.
- The little spring clips Voile uses to hold the handle, blade and saw in place can get sprung right out. Fortunately for me I found mine in the snow on the trail of Mt Pierce at the start of the Presi-Traverse and didnt have to use duct tape and bailing wire to hold it together.
Think Twice about this isn't ideally designed with winter backcountry use in mind.
