Well I bought this as the Blizzard of 2010 was coming towards Manhattan and didn't feel like going from store to store to find the right shovel. I have a small car so I wanted something that folds up to keep in the hatchback.

It's made of plastic so you can't chip away any thick ice but it does a good job moving snow around if you can keep it from getting too heavy.

It's the perfect size for making a path out for a car. My Ford Focus got into a drift pretty easily, I prepped a parking spot to move into and I got in with no problems.

The folding works well, it's got a lock so it won't fold up on you while you use it, you have to pull and turn a latch to make it open or close.

It's great for a portable tool, it is plastic so some ice might be a problem but I would plan to break ice chunks with an ice scraper and then move the snow and ice around with this.

Overall, I was very glad I purchased this product. Having just been hit with the Midwest blizzard, this arrived just in time.

As to the product, one of the most notable features is its size. While it would not be very good for shoveling a large area, it works well for shoveling between cars, and the size is just right to fit in a car trunk or back seat. Additionally, the shovel folds in half, making it even more compact. The blade is longer than it is wide, so it still picks up a decent amount of snow with every scoop. It is a little short when open for pushing snow, but for shoveling (actually having to pick up and throw the snow to the side) it works pretty well.

The two handles work pretty well and give a decent amount of leverage when picking up snow, though the middle handle is so close to the blade that your glove is guaranteed to get some snow on it with a full shovel. After about an hour of shoveling around my car (the drifts were up to my chest, so I had a serious amount of shoveling to do), I had to switch gloves because they were too soaked from this hand positioning.

The handle locks open with a clamp lock (a little piece of plastic that when open allows full movement and when closed applies friction to keep the shovel in place. The shovel is prevented from opening past the full point via plastic tabs on either side that push against each other. The clamp lock never worked well, frequently sliding open more than I wanted it, but the tabs did a good job of stopping it at first. After a while, the plastic tabs had taken too much and no longer kept the shovel from opening all the way. This led to the shovel opening too far and the snow sliding right off.

I purchased this shovel for the recent winter storms in NYC. The shovel is well designed and perfect for emergencies and small jobs. The blade is made of tempered plastic. It won't carve through thick ice but works well for almost all other conditions. I was able to dig my car out of 2 ft of heavy/icy snow and free up the wheels faster than several other stranded motorists. It is much lighter than standard shovels, folds compactly, and fits nicely in the trunk. As mentioned elsewhere, the latch does loosen with repeated use but I was able to easily re-tighten it by hand. I felt that the handle placement was good and versatile. My wife, who is petite, was able to use it easily as well. Amusingly, several observers remarked that they thought the shovel was "cool." I would definitely buy this shovel again.

Pros: lightweight, compact, versatile, almost "cool"
Cons: latch may loosen with use

Just ordered one of these shovels for our SUV. When it arrived and we saw how compact it is, and how sturdy it appears to be, we ordered another one for the pick-up. We thankfully have not had a chance to use it, but by the looks of it we think it will be very good for moving soft snow. We are getting a different type of shovel just to chop into snow that has a hard crust, and will still use this one to actually move snow. Of course this shovel is not meant for shoveling your sidewalk, however it looks like it will be great for emergency use when traveling in the winter.

I purchased this to have something that could be stuck in the trunk of the cars, so that I could dig in a pinch. The design is great for folding into a very compact, portable size. The tradeoff is that it is nowhere near as useful as a real shovel, but useful nonetheless. I used it to rescue a stuck motorist, clearing a path to lay down the Portable Tow Truck traction strips, so this shovel has certainly accomplished its basic purpose. It is definitely better to have it on hand than not to have a shovel, and most folks cannot comfortably fit a full-size snow shovel in their vehicles.

I did not purchase this on Amazon but at Home Depot. First time I used it was in dry powder snow and did the job. The second time was in wet heavy snow and the locking mechanism stripped out and rendered the unit useless. They need to improve on the latching mechanism to be more robust.

I bought one of these shovels a while back as a precaution, and got the chance to use it several times this past winter. It's a pretty good little shovel. Got me out of a few jams this winter, actually had to shovel myself out at work and again to get into my driveway once I got home. Folds up smaller than I expected, so it doesn't take up a ton of trunk space.

A word of precaution: when folding and unfolding the shovel, be sure to use the lever on the side! I was forced to shovel in the dark and didn't see the lever, and after folding and unfolding it a few times, it kept trying to fold up when shoveling. That was definitely due to operator error, and I'll probably have to replace it because of that.

Other than that, it's definitely worth the cost, saved me from towing charges when I got stuck
