    Considering I'm in a tornado zone, you never know when you just might need something like this. I was able to fit it in my 72 hr kit with plenty of room for a few other nick nacks. I thought it was very easy to unfold and set up. I liked the carry case it came with too.

    Its small lightweight size makes it possible to include it in our bug out bag. In any emergency situation it is handy and convenient. Can be used to bury waste, dig up edible roots, etc. There is no limit to its uses.

    These are just like the ones that the military uses and they are cheaper than going to an army navy store. This even comes with a case like the military ones.

    This worked fine for digging shallow trenches. I wouldn't want to use it for any real job. It's heavy, and a little awkward to carry. After a while it got stuck in the closed position, it took a vise, some pliers, and some WD40 to break the nut lose. I still have it around, and it works for small jobs, but I store it in the open position now - just in case
