Initially I ordered two of the "LITE" model folding shovels but determined them to be inadequate even just for very light use. (My review of the "LITE" model is posted on its own Amazon product page.) So I ordered the "PRO" model from a different vendor and hoped for the best.

Unfortunately, the second vendor erroneously sent me the "LITE" model shovels instead of the "PRO" model shovels I ordered; and when contacted, sincerely apologized and advised me that, in fact, they did NOT carry the "PRO" model at all; so I returned them for a refund. But I still didn't have the two "PRO" model folding shovels I was seeking.

By now I doubted whether the "PRO" model shovels really existed in the universe, so I contacted UST/Revere Products to try to find out. They assured me the "PRO" model does indeed exist, and suggested I check with our local REI store to see if they had the "PRO" model available. I did, REI did, I went, and at long last I have what I sought - two UST U-Dig-It "PRO" Stainless Steel Folding Shovels. They are solid, hefty, strong, and very well-made right here in the good old USA (in Oregon, or so I was told by the UST/Revere rep.)

Since these folding shovels are to be kept in our Bug-Out-Bags, and since we might not be able to replace them right away if they failed, we need to trust that they won't break. I am happy to say that after testing these two "PRO" model shovels I feel confident that they can withstand the moderate use I envision.

Bottom Line: I do recommend the American-made UST U-Dig-It "PRO" Stainless Steel Folding Shovel, but I definitely do not recommend the Chinese-made "LITE" model. Be sure you order AND RECEIVE the "UST U-Dig-It PRO Stainless Steel Folding Shovel" model. Do not waste your time and/or money on the "LITE" model, no matter how inexpensive it may be.

If you're going to be digging into hard soil (like sun-baked clay) or rocky soil, this is a great choice. It 'bites' into soil well for its size. Build is sturdy. I've had mine several years, it's held up fine. Nylon sheath is a handy plus. You may want to toss this into a ziplock bag to keep your pack clean.

If the handle should ever bend (mine has not), you can bend it back with a pair of pliers. One reviewer says his was pinching his hand, and I wonder if it just needed a pliers adjustment.

If you're looking for something lighter and don't need it to be metal, the inexpensive Fiskars plastic garden trowel ($1.50 currently on Amazon and big box stores everywhere) is a great choice.
Besides digging personal latrines when camping, these little trowels have a lot of non-camping uses.

By the way, you can wrap paracord or other rope (or even bicycle handlebar tape) around the handle for a much more comfortable grip...the trowel will still fold up just fine.
These are available at a range of prices from various vendors, but they're all the same trowel. Made in China.

Hope this is helpful. Happy digging, everybody.
