Like the animal it's named after, the Ortovox Badger Shovel is compact, powerful, and built to dig. It's made with hardened aluminum for a lightweight feel that doesn't sacrifice strength, and it features high side walls and a center ridge for added rigidity and maximum efficiency. When speed matters, a centering aid in the shaft socket helps you assemble it rapidly, while the hybrid grip and non-slip step grooves on the top of the blade let you shovel snow efficiently and quickly.

- Q & A
This shovel is super light, durable, and very easy to pack. I havenât needed to use it yet but know it will get the job done when needed. If you are looking for a shovel at a very good price, snag one of these.
Good avy shovel
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have used this shovel for digging snow pits in the back country and I also keep it in the car in case of emergencies. This shovel moves snow well and packs easily into my 38L backpack with all the necessities. I like the fixed handle because the shovel feels more solid and there are less pieces to break or lose. Good shovel, good price!
