DMOS Stealth Shovel

One of the biggest downsides to backcountry snowboarding is that there aren’t any pre-built and groomed ramps. But your average snow shovel is bulky, heavy, and far too awkward to haul around the woods. Thankfully, the folks at DMOS have created the Stealth Shovel – a collapsible and packable kicker-building tool.

Built from powder-coated T6 6061 aircraft grade aluminum, this digger weighs a grand total of just 3.3 pounds – but it’s durable enough to survive even the toughest digging jobs. In fact, it’s been tested and succeeded in temperatures ranging from -40 to 170 degrees Fahrenheit. Even better, it can withstand up to 3,886 pounds of force and offers 56.5 inches of leverage, meaning it can make short work of pretty much any job you can throw at it. But it also collapses down into a format that’s only 18″ by 9″ – so it’s easily strapped to just about any winter-friendly pack. You could feasibly use this versatile tool to build board ramps, dig your car out of a snowdrift, and even garden in the warmer months. And it’ll only cost you $90.

Purchase: $90
