USGI Military E-Tool Shovel Product Review

As a genuine issue of the US military, this survival shovel is built to withstand any condition you could think of. The heavy steel blades are designed to dig through everything from gravel to tough dirt and roots. The blades’ serrated edge also gives you peace of mind that you can cut through certain terrains if necessary.

When looking for a survival shovel, size and portability are crucial. This shovel comes with the added benefit of being adjustable, so you can lock it in at different lengths and positions. It can also double as a grappling hook or an ice pick, so you use this shovel whatever the weather.

For your convenience, this shovel also comes with a durable carrying case, made from 1000 denier nylon. It includes MOLLE straps so you can easily attach the case to your backpack or vest.

However, the reliability of this carrying case is questionable. Some customers have claimed that it is a bit too narrow to properly fit the shovel inside, and will require you to maneuverer the tool around to get it in correctly.
