+Packs down small
+Decent blade size
+Works well on snow
-Worked for about half an hour on soil before the locking mechanism broke
-The serrated edge is kinda a gimmick
-Small when fully opened (kinda expected with a folding shovel though)
I would buy it to be kept in the car to dig yourself out or to clear a pathway. If you intend to do any digging in soil but need portability just buy a miniature shovel because within half an hour the locking mech broke, meaning you end up with a shovel that flops between the fully extended and 90 degree positions
Gave 4 stars because I do like it and if used correctly then it would be perfect, just know it has limits.
