This shovel is the best! It folds up and is perfect for fitting in the back pack. I was nervous it wouldn't be strong enough too. But once I put it to use its extremely strong doesn't bend and is very very light so it's awesome! I give it a 9.75/10 there's probably something out there that could make this better but I'm still trying to figure it out! Ps it rakes a spot great. And I was shoveling hardened arena snow so it took the test!
