Gerber Gorge folding shovel, Box 22-41578

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on October 21, 2011
Ordered two; one for each of our vehicles; primary reason was for dealing with all the snow we receive in Minnesota since we periodically travel on non-arterial streets and some off-road; secondary use for scouting (used once already and it works perfectly); third reason was for camping/hiking in northeastern Minnesota adjacent to Lake Superior (aka locally as the North Shore); overall nice to have if your activities take you out of an urban setting.
Pros: Exactly what I was looking for; see comments.
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes

Gerber Shovel

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on November 23, 2010
The Gerber Gorge Folding Shovel is very compact. This is both a positive and negative. On the one hand, as a camper intending on hiking this tool in to my camp site, I want it lightweight and space-saving. On the other hand, this is barely large enough for the simplest digging task. The tool is about the size of a large gardening spade but weighs about 2 or 3 times as much. However, the extra weight makes this a sold, durable tool able to reduce its overall length by 30% and do heavier tasks than a typical spade, like hammer in tent stakes.

If you want ultra-light, bring a spade. If you want a full-use shovel, get something much longer--like a real shovel. While this tool does not satisfy either of these extremes, if what you need a two day latrine hole, this will work without breaking your back.

I received the product quickly and with no problems. I would only recommend the Gerber Shovel to someone needing a compact tool for light use.
Pros: Compact
Cons: ... Compact...
Would recommend: Yes
