The Jones Excavator Shovel is a robust and lightweight backcountry tool built for both rescue and winter camping use. Featuring a streamlined yet high volume anodized aluminum blade, the Excavator can move snow fast, yet easily slips into any sized backpack. The Excavator’s two-section collapsible aluminum shaft can adjust from 32cm to 49cm and offers a functional length while keeping the shaft compact. For unshakable grip when moving fast or changing hand positions, the Excavator is outfitted with an ergonomic symmetrical T-handle. Ideal for backcountry travel and winter camping.
