....undestructable? Lexan shovels are a joke of the industry.
This would be the first one that is really "undestructable" (I have a broken "undestructable" one at home, albeit from another company). Lexan blades are a joke of the European industry, and good that BCA and Voile are avaible now here too.
Get one with a prober tele handle and metal blade - like a Voile or BCA. Your partner might thank you for it one day.

If you do want a light shovel, get the BCA Traverse EXT (590gr) or for spring tours (not winter) if you have the strength to compensate the short handle, get a Voile XLM (500gr) or BCA Tour (450 gr) the only acceptable light shovels.
