Light & Small Peace of Mind,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Wanted something to move snow, just in case. The BD Deploy fits in my daypack and is amazing light and compact. The handle deploys and locks by engaging two spring buttons that engage in holes in the shovel neck.
I've not put it to hard use, but I'm glad to know it's there. I carry it when snowshoeing on Mt. Hood, Oregon. It's also nice to know I have something around the house in Portland, Oregon, where it snows sometimes, but not enough to warrant anything for regularly moving snow.
I look forward to my first snow cave with this shovel.
