A rapid-deployment shovel for daily use in the backcountry, the Black Diamond Deploy features a trapezoidal shaft that locks into place with a quick pull, so you don’t waste time putting things together when you need to be digging. When it’s time to stash the Deploy in your pack, the curved handle slides down and hugs the contours of the blade to take up minimal space.
