Light but not flimsy.
Voile designed its XLM Shovel to be as light as possible, without sacrificing an ounce of strength. The fixed shovel shaft and blade are made from lightweight 6000 series tempered aluminum, making the Voile XLM one of the lightest metal shovels on the market. If you carry a plastic shovel because of weight, now you can have the strength and reliability of a metal blade without being weighed down.

Light and burly.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This is a sweet little shovel that's fairly compact and would make a nice addition to a dawn patrol pack. I'd say it's a better alternative to lightweight plastic shovels since it's made out of aluminum, but the blade is fairly small, so it's not going to move quite as much snow as the Telepro. I still tour mainly with my Telepro just because I prefer the larger blade, but this is a nice little shovel if you're looking for something that's going to take up less space in your pack.
