    Start diggin'.

    Black Diamond designed the Deploy 3 Shovel with a collapsible handle that nests into the blade, making it easy to stash it in your pack while leaving plenty of room for all your other gear. The trapezoidal aluminum shaft and hybrid D/T handle are strong and light, while the Deploy's compact size makes it great for digging small pits or working in tight situations.

    Awesome Shovel

      This shovel is perfect for any of your backcountry needs. It is extremely portable and can fit in pretty much any pack. It is very durable as well. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great backcountry shovel.


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've broken a couple avalanche shovels over the years but the Deploy 3 seems to keep holding strong! Great shovel that is super light at only 1 pound 4 ounces. Easy to hold grip for any digging situation. The blade cuts clean for avalanche testing or even building a booter here in the Wasatch! Love it!


      Great shovel

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Great shovel. The quality is top notch and once you start using this shovel you can tell it will last a long time. Easy to assemble and assembly is fast. Fairly light but with construction this good it's not going to be the lightest. I have two small complaints and both are addressed with the Depoly 7. The shovel width is kind of small and the handle is on the short side. With that being said if those are concerns for you than get the Depoly 7. All around great shovel that will last for years!
