Shoveling snow all day to build that perfect backcountry booter can make your back tired and sore in a hurry. Stave off potential issues by using the Brooks Range Compact EXT Shovel with an extendable shaft that allows you to dig with more leverage and from a less hunched over position. Slots in the blade allow for easy carrying, or use as an emergency sled. Lightweight and compact, this shovel will always be with you when you need it most. Hopefully it's for building sweet chairs to sit and have lunch, and not digging out your buddy after an accident.
