You may want to shave weight off your backcountry setup by leaving your shovel at home, but a shovel is as essential as your skis, so balance your minimal-minded desires with avy-certified safety by packing Voile's Telepack Shovel. Just because this shovel is one of the smaller options in Voile's collection doesn't mean it's some skimpy spoon. This shovel features an extendable handle to enhance efficiency when you're digging, and the tempered scoop yields an impressive tensile strength of 35,000 psi, meaning you won't be able to break it if you tried. The scoop also features slotted holds that help you create an emergency rescue sled or anchor point, though Voile doesn't recommend rapping into crevasses with that method.

Overall this shovel is fairly straightforward and a great product from Voile. It's a fairly small shovel but it definitely gets the job done, so far I haven't used it very 'seriously' mostly cleaning off my car and taking it on a tour or 3. It is pretty lightweight and the extendable handle makes it great to use and pack.
Is this the same as the Voile Telepro Shovel but with T handle?
What is size difference between regular and mini sizes?
