Failed during a simulated avy rescue.
The lower spring loaded pin assembly fell out of the handle, making the shovel unusable.
Light and Durable
This shovel is awesome because not only does it work but it is light and compact. When you pack you bags to get into the backcountry no longer will your shovel take up all the room on your outer straps. This will be nice compact and sturdy. The best is the new weld less connection point to help strengthen the shovels life. I have not had any issues with the Pin falling out!
