The Arva Ultra is a super lightweight shovel with an aluminium blade and a super light fibreglass and carbon handle. The shaft length is 48cm, long enough to affect a reasonable rescue whilst keeping the weight to a minimum. The blade/scoop is just 21cm x 21cm so an efficient shovelling technique is vital if you're going out with this shovel, the blade is shaped to make cutting through hard snow easier. The advantage of such a small blade is obvious - it takes up hardly any pack space and weighs next to nothing!

I work in the outdoors and have climbed skied extensively for 30 years Superlight & easily packable. Used last week to dig a snow hole on Cairngorm. Sharp metal blade cuts through hardback well. As long as you realise it's a lightweight tool and not for heavy duty usage its brilliant. Because it's so light you don't mind carrying it. 8 out of 10 due to price only.
