This shovel is a staff favourite and is practically indestructible. The plastic is so strong that you can even use it as a pogo stick (don't try this at home!)
This orange shovel features a robust integrated handle and telescoping shaft (with a T-shaped grip) which makes the shovel quick to assemble and easy to use. It's designed as an avalanche shovel, so the blade is made from an unbreakable polycarbon, and has a decent edge to it (29 x 21 x 6cm) and it's also very light - only 600 grams! The bright orange blade acts as a beacon to help the professionals find you in difficult situations, but let's hope you never get into one!
