Black Diamond Deploy 3 Shovel - $59.46

Check out the Black Diamond Deploy 3 Shovel if you want a design that's light, small, fast, and simple. Couloir Magazine was so impressed they gave it their 2006 Degisn Innovations Award. The Deploy 3 Shovel's handle collapses into the blade for a tiny 17.3in package that's entirely self-contained. Just give the handle a pull, and its trapezoidal shape ensures it slides and locks into place. No more messing with frozen buttons or handle parts buried in your pack. In addition to this Black Diamond shovel's amazing simplicity, it weighs only 20oz, making it a great choice for alpine climbing and lightweight backcountry tours. - $59.46
