Good deal on "backcountry" shovels at Costco

Postby Jeff Valliere » Tue Nov 20, 2012 10:22 am

A friend of mine made a recent discovery that I thought I would share here:

Have not checked them out myself, so I cannot attest to the quality, but the price is good, so I will probably pick up a pair, if only to keep in the car or give to my daughters so they can help me scrape the driveway (if it ever snows again).

I checked them out last night and they don't look too bad. I'm not going to say their equal to or better than a black diamond or similar brand but I'd say for 20.00 for 2 you can't go wrong. I plan on picking up a pair for my girlfriend and I to at least keep in our cars for the winter if nothing else.
