The MSR Operator Snow Shovel is a backcountry shovel for basecamps and snow pits. The D-handle version of the shovel comes in at 1lb, 10oz (the T-handle is 1lb, 8oz), allowing you to pack it while still get great digging power out of the telescoping handle. The high sides combine with a serrated edge to drive in and scoop more, whether you're constructing or on a rescue mission. Building a snow shelter in the backcountry is so much more satisfying than digging out your car in the mornings before work.
