Versatile, collapsible, and packable, the DMOS Stealth Shovel is a handy tool whether you're facing down a snowy bomb cyclone or just cleaning up the backyard on a warm summer day. Made from 2.5mm, T6-6061 aircraft grade aluminum alloy, it's nearly twice as thick as an avalanche shovel yet weighs just 3.3 lbs. It extends up to 56.5" long for usage but is a compact 18" x 9" x 2.25" when broken down, small enough for keeping in your car or strapping to your backpack. Teeth on the front edge help break up ice and tough ground, an oversized 16.25" x 9" blade can clear areas quickly, and its powder-coat finish ensures years of service, no matter what you plan to use it for. Stress tested in lab and field conditions in temperatures ranging from -40 and 170 degrees Fahrenheit.
