The Voile Telepro is a great backcounty workhorse shovel. The compacted length of 18 inches allows for easy stowing on a pack while the extended 32.5 inches gives great leverage for moving lots of snow. The big D handle also makes it easier to use the shovel for extended periods and allows for better control with heavy loads.
The large, tempered aluminum scoop is strong enough to handle hard compacted snow and large enough to move lots of powder. There are also holes in the blade so that it can be used as an emergency deadman anchor.
The lightweight aluminum handle telescopes from 18 inches for storage to 32.5 inches for moving snow.

The D handle is more comfortable than other T handle shovels and makes it easier to use for extended periods of time.
The blade is very durable and makes quick work of compacted snow. The extendable handle gives tons of leverage for prying snow blocks out for building wind blocks.
