Efficient shovel

If you want a shovel that dogs efficiently. This is it. Whether you are a backcountry skier or a ski patroller, this shovel is gray quality. I like the comfort of the handle and how the handle extends. From finding someone in an avalanche to digging snow pits, would highly recommend.

Awesome bigger shovel

I upgraded from my smaller BCA collapsible shovel to this big guy primarily for my upcoming Denali trip. This one worked great digging out tent platforms and a cook tent, and I spent way less time stopped over compared to my smaller shovel. Obviously it's larger and heavier, but definitely worth the tradeoff for me!

It’s a shovel

Don’t love how the curved attachment point for the blade and the handle fit in my pack. However, when put together it’s an ergonomically good shape.

Great Avy Shovel

I got this because the Evac 9 has trouble fitting into my Scott avy bag. The Evac 7 is still big enough to move snow around quickly. D-handle and hoe mode are great features.

Evac 7

Haven't used it yet since I just got it and the season hasn't started yet. It fits perfectly into my new Dawn Patrol 25 pack which I will be using for full time ski patrol work. It seems sturdy and I especially like the ability to switch to how mode quickly. The blade volume is bigger than my other shovels=more and quicker snow removal. We're always having to dig out tower and snowmaking hydrant pads, plus we do buried transceiver drills regularly. It will definitely be put to work this upcoming 23-24 season.

Indestructible shovel?

Backed over it with the Skidoo Skandic with barely a scratch left on the shovel!

Well Made Shovel

The Evac 7 is a well made shovel. The welded attachment point for the handle is just one example of the quality design. The shovel is light for its size and packs well. I would recommend this shovel to experts as well as those heading out to the back country for the first time.

Rattles like cans tied behind a wedding car

I watched a video from a Canadian Mountain/Ski guide touting your Evac 7 as a strong, dependable shovel. Figured I give it a try. I can't Imagin that kind of slop, bodes well for aggressive use in avalanche debris.

Great Length, D Handle is super comfy but... barely fits in my Dawn Patrol 32 pack. It is a struggle to get the zipper to close. I have tried repositioning but have not found a good way to make it fit without a struggle.
