I would not recommend this product to anyone, this company should be kicked off of Amazon!!Folding Camping Survival Shovel with Pick
This thing is small, weak, poorly balanced, and easily broken. Spend a few extra bucks and get yourself a surplus folding military entrenching tool (E-tool) and pouch instead of this garbage.
Initially, it may appear decent, but this folding camping survival shovel just doesn't cut it and shows its faults when used for more than a few minutes. Either your hands quickly get torn up (because its ergonomics are awful) or it simply falls apart.
I sometimes enjoy evaluating new pieces of gear to see if they add something to my existing tools or offer a new feature or two. This does neither. Two of these shovels were given to me at a camping/hunting show so I decided to test them on our next outing. While setting up our camp that fall we tried them out. One quickly turned into garbage (spade became twisted and chipped way too easily) while digging a simple drainage ditch around our tent (dry, semi-hard earth with few rocks). I then babied the next one while I finished the drainage ditch, and then dug the firepit and a latrine. It was plain to see while working that it was too small and was taking way too long to complete a task that an E-tool would normally bite into and finish quickly. I did finish up with it, but by the time I did I was forced to put gloves on (which I never need to do with an E-tool) and even then my hands/arms were aching because this shovel slides, twists and rolls on you (due to the lack of a T-handle) as you work. In other words, it requires extra effort and discomfort to work with, thereby causing you to work longer.
This piece of gear is a pretender and I pity the poor person who is stuck somewhere with it.
Overall, these tools are unreliable and horrible when compared to my 25 year old E-tool which I have never needed to repair. A camping/survival tool should give you confidence in its durability, efficiency, and versatility.
