The MSR Responder Snow Shovel is a packable shovel for snow pits and rescue missions. The shovel begins with the smaller blade, in a 6061-T6 high strength, hard-anodized aluminum, that has a serrated edge to drive through snow and ice. The shaft has two sections that telescope and deploy quickly ending in a T-handle that is ready to grip regardless of what kind of gloves you've got on your paws. The Responder earns a place in your day pack with just 1 lb, 6oz of weight.

FEATURES of the MSR Responder Snow Shovel

  • Compact: Our smaller blade, featuring a reduced scooping geometry and neckless design for stashing easily in a backcountry or sidecountry pack; neckless design adds durability
  • Fast Deployment: Two-section, non-rotational telescoping shaft and fast lock pin provide rapid, hassle-free deployment
  • Ergonomic T-handle: Meticulously designed to offer the same comfort and control as a D-handle, in a compact, low-profile form that works with all glove types
  • Versatile: Shaft's upper section fits equally well into the blade, allowing you to choose the shovel length you need
  • Aggressive: 6061-T6 high-strength, hard-anodized aluminum blade, with traditional flat chopping face for stable strike and serrated edge to break up snow and ice
  • Straighter geometry excels in paddling snow quickly during a burial rescue, making this shovel the choice for your rescue kit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great mountaineering shovel! I have used several shovels, my last being a BD one. I picked this one up and knew that I had a new favorite. It was very easy to dig avy pits with this shovel, even when there were some firmer ice layers to chop through. The flat blade made it easy to smooth out the pit walls and the shop also assists with packing it away easily, right in the outside pocket on my pack. The T handle and shape of the shaft make it super quick to assemble or extend from the blade. I also like that you can leave part of the handle at home and connect the top section of the shaft directly to the blade if you are concerned with weight. All my buds that have used this love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Quality Shovel I just received this shovel today and am already thoroughly impressed. Very lightweight and solid construction. I tried it out in my yard and it cuts through the snow with ease. Also like the design of the telescoping handle. Very easy to extend. Can't wait to use it in the backcountry for winter camping/snowshoeing and also later this season and next year when I sign up for Avalanche classes. Seems like all the gear I have ever bought over the years from MSR is gear that I still use today and this shovel is well built and solid and I am sure it will last a lifetime. MSR is a great company who stands behind everything they make because it is top quality, well thought out and designed gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I've got the Responder shovel a few weeks back for SAR and having fun in the yard. It works great and feels comfortable. Dug out a small snow cave in the snow pile in the front yard to test it out. I really love the solid telescoping handle for close quarters digging and it cuts through hardened snow very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shovel Bought a couple of these before Christmas in anticipation of an Avy 1 class and have used them in the field for a couple of classes and they worked well, were light weight and held up to a little abuse
