I’d like to see this test with all the shovels.

I'd be game for that as well. I've got lots of snow piles at my place. Just need a few different brand shovels

I run the Volie. One in my pack one on my sled
Sold the BCA one. Found the blade small and handle short for me. All my loaners are the SOS shovels and I have one HMK. With the short handle.

But it would be cool to put a bunch of shovels up against each other and see the pros and cons to each.

I have the HMK with the long handle. I’m 295 lbs and 6’5. It has the compass and saw blade in the handle. I forget what I paid for it now. But I will tell you this. 2 years ago I dug a pit half way up Sir Alexander in at Kakwa. I’d put it up against anything. 8’ wide by 6’. We had a big fire and kicked it for a couple hours while changing a track out.

Yessir, got that one. the steel tip on the handle is great for ice chipping too! saw is completely F'd but might save your life in a pinch lol
