Our top-of-the-line UIAA certified shovel built for professional use, the Black Diamond Evac features a unique handle that can be set up in in both standard shovel and hoe mode for digging test pits or rapid snow removal. The large blade moves lots of snow quickly, and a flat-bottom profile helps you get a good clean face on your pit wall. The updated, extendable shaft eliminates the possibility of jamming in the field while the modified large D handle increases comfort for long days involving multiple pits and speeds up digging time during an emergency.
