Backcountry travel is a serious endeavor. It not only takes specialized gear, but the knowledge of how to use that gear to stay safe in the mountains. An avalanche shovel is a crucial piece of equipment that could just save you or your partner's life if caught in an avalanche. The Brooks-Range Compact Pro D Shovel is the shovel of choice for professionals all over the world, and for good reason. When extended, the Compact Pro is more than 3 feet long, giving you the leverage you need to move debris, yet collapses to just 31.5 inches when you need it shorter. Since shoveling is often more of a chopping action in the mountains, the Pro's blade is made from tempered aluminum for increased durability and strength. This is an item you don't want to be caught without. *This is a new demo product used only for show. It has never been used but may have slight cosmetic wear from transit.*
