FOR: Neutral
MSRP: $80
GET IT: $58.90

From the Editors of Freeskier:

The D-2 EXT is a beastly shovel, inspired by earth-moving bulldozers, with a shaft that can attach perpendicularly to the 10-by-11-inch blade for efficient snow removal in “hoe mode.”

The Pros: Large blade. Ergonomic grips.
The Cons: Two pounds will weight down your pack a bit.
