Findings: This little shovel is a real gem. In my quest for light weight gear, I’ve brought out some cheap shovels sacrificing strength for weight. What a mistake! This trowel however is light weight and strong. It has depth markers on it to make sure you are digging deep enough and a space to loop a lanyard through for easy strapping onto your pack. Plus, as an added bonus, it looks pretty cool! So now digging a hole for your you know what is easy and stylish. Way to go GSI!
