The Camp Crest Shovel is a competition shovel for ski mountaineering where weight could cost a place on the podium. The Crest complies with the ISMF regulations and is suitable for this purpose. If you are looking to buy an avalanche safety shovel then you should buy an aluminium bladed one not one of these.
The shovels blade is made from Polypropylene making it stiffer than most plastic shovels and easier to use but still pretty rubbish for a proper rescue. Four holes in the blade allow it to be used as a snow anchor in emergency situations. The aluminium shaft slides into the blade making this a good compact size when in your pack.
This shovel is really only for competative ski mountaineers. It's super light and small but in terms of avalanche rescue totally rubbish. It should really only be purchased as a second shovel for racing duties.
