Product Description Item No.   10260086

The MSR Basecamp Snow Construction Saw is a snow saw for cutting out blocks of snow for your shelter deep in the winter backcountry. Shelter from the wind is just what the doctor ordered after a long day of snowshoeing or skiing up into the mountains. Why not build that shelter fast with 65cm of toothy 7075 aluminum? Durable enough to chew and cut it's way through ice and snow, you'll be snuggled into your very own snow hole after a short amount of hard work. When it's time to pack up and move, the saw folds, chopping the length in half and slides into a welded sheath that protects it and your surrounding gear.

FEATURES of the MSR Basecamp Snow Construction Saw

  • Aggressive: Non-linear blade delivers an ultra-efficient cutting pattern, while laser-cut teeth rip snow and ice in both directions, and voids between teeth remove debris from path
  • Rigid: Secure, low-profile locking pin holds reliably through hard pack conditions, and increases stiffness
  • Compact: Folds its long reach to half its size for ultimate pack ability and backcountry practicality

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lock Mechanism Failed On First Use The saw worked out great until ice started forming under the small metal strip that is the locking mechanism. 30 minutes or so into building a shelter the saw started becoming a problem. Once enough ice formed under the lock (which was very little, really) the lock completely failed! I had to use extreme caution on the push strokes to not have the saw fold up and ruin my brand new OR mitts. This made building a shelter inefficient which was a huge bummer, because I was really excited about my new fancy piece of gear. I feel like this is a total design flaw. I likely can't return it, I bought it at feathered friends over a month ago. If I decide to use it again, I'll drill a hole where the other lock hole lines up, and use a small carriage bolt, or something a little fancier to minimize friction when cutting. That being said... In my opinion, this thing should be recalled, because in other scenarios, people could get hurt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from efficient and ergonomic Recently went on a ski/ snowshoe tour in Sequoia. It was so fun, our friend brought the MSR basecamp snow saw. It was fast and efficient in penetrating the snow to make near perfect blocks to build our shelter. Great buy and perfect for the winter camping season
