Gerber Review
Seems sturdy and well built but smaller than it looks in the picture. Great for small jobs while camping but definitely not big enough to dig a very deep, like if your vehicle was stuck in the mud.

Fantastic shovel for the size
I got this to put in my bug out bag. I needed a small, compact shovel that could handle some wear and tear a low price. This was the perfect fit. It's a very small shovel, so you can't expect it to perform like a full size shovel or even an E-tool. It's designed to be as compact as possible while still having digging capabilities. It has a simple and yet effective folding method. The head folds over, and the handle is slid up the shaft. To lock the head in place is still done like the old fashioned E-tool, but the handle can just be pulled out into place. While folded it's nearly the size of my hand, while opened I can use it with two hands quite comfortably. The shovel also comes with a small hammer head instead of a pick. This hammer is useable, however I couldn't imagine that it could do much more than pounding stakes. The tool can dig very well for the size, with minimum fatigue. If you are looking for a very compact, quality folding shovel then you've found it, just keep the size in perspective.You wouldn't cut down a full sized tree with a pocket knife.
