Not a bad tool, but it is a bit on the flimsy side. Clearly, it's not made for moving rocks and whatnot, but for basic dirt/sand/mud recovery, it gets the job done...kinda. I really like how compact it is, and the pouch is well-made too.

I broke it the first time I used it. I guess it should not be used to dig mud out from under the front of your Jeep.

I bought these shovels to take to the beach and then was going to use them as emergency shovels for my vehicles. I only used one and after only one day of sitting in the ocean breeze the powder coated hardware began to rust, even though it was rinsed thoroughly with fresh water. To further my disappointment when I finally used the shovel to dig in one of the softest mediums know to man, sand, the metal blade gouged grooves into the plastic tightening collar rendering my shovel into nothing more than a glorified hand trowel. I have yet to contact the company to see if they will replace the defective product. I would have returned it to amazon but the return window had closed by the time I got back from the beach. There needs to be a metal bushing between the metal blade and the plastic tightening collar which I may be forced to fabricate myself. Stay away from this or you'll be disappointed.

Nice quality and sturdy. The tri-fold build makes it very compact, and including a good case with it is a nice touch.

I'm not a big guy weighing only 140 pounds but the day this shovel came i extended it, gave it some pressure and the nylon reinforced handle snapped. Another waste of money...

does the job. not nearly as reliable as a Gerber military issue, but you get decent quality for the price.

I won this shovel in a charity raffle. At first look it seems great, and even seems kind of heavy duty and durable. I have yet to use it to dig my jeep out, as I usually have a buddy with me to pull me when I get stuck, but I HAVE used it about 20 times to dig a hole in the woods. It works great for hole-digging and fire-covering duties, but the plastic handle cracked at the base after two hits to a piece of firewood.

Pros: Pretty lightweight, folds up kinda small, relatively cheap, easy to lock into position using the twisting shaft
Cons: Handle is not very strong, serrated edges are worthless for sawing

Don't use it to whack wood and you ought to be okay. It's great for digging small holes and covering camp fires. I'm going to gorilla-glue it where it cracked and use it for light camp duty.

A friend gave me this shovel which was very nice. Neither one of us had tried this particular shovel out before.

Build seemed nice, tight and secure when locked open but the plastic handle broke when shoveling some snow to clear a stuck truck. I was using about 1/2 strength when shoveling. It would have definitely broken had I been trying to dig out dirt and rock.

I suppose it would be OK if you knew to be gentle when digging but that's not something that seems against what a shovel should be made for.
