FOR: Neutral
MSRP: $89
GET IT: $88.95

From the Editors of Freeskier:

Like its name suggests, the Kodiak shovel is powerful. It offers an additional 90-degree shaft position for efficient relocation of snow and a serrated blade for effective ice and snow chopping.

The Pros: Rubberized portion of handle provides optimal grip.
The Cons: Serrated blade isn’t great for snow-pit maintenance.
