It’s definitely an orange shovel

This shovel is great for digging holes and stuff. Its ability to bury poop makes it a truly multifunction tool. The bright orange color makes it easy to find in the snow. Also good to have nearby so if you drop trou to do your business and a hunter mistakes you for a hairy wildebeest, you can frantically wave the blaze orange to get his attention. Awesome all around.

The shoveliest shovel of them all.

It digs holes and scoops dirt well. Bring it camping so other people don’t have to step in your mess. Terrible for eating ice cream with.

Its a trowel. You dig a hole. You poop in it. You fill it up. You leave. Is capable of doing that. Good poop hole digger.

These trowels have been around AT LEAST 40 years, so not only do they work great, but they have a nice nostalgia, like a Sierra Club Cup.

It’s orange, 2 oz, $4, and digs. Five stars.

We use these as our poop-hole diggers when backpacking. The shovel is easy to see, lightweight (1.9 ounces by my scale), and digs well. It arrives quite sharp but over time will dull down. Beware the sharp edges when packing to avoid damaging your bag.

I like this trowel because it is light weight. Its easy to find because the color of the trowel is orange. The trowel is one piece. I can dig really good when the dirt is dry. I got mine from a local sports store, it was on clearance. It was a 1.50. Well worth the price for the trowel. I actually had this trowel on my “wish list” and would have bought it at the current price on Amazon. It is very strong.

Does exactly what you think

Not exactly rocket science here. Its a shovel. its small and light weight. Its blaze orange so you can find it when you drop it, and as one person said, if you find yourself in a hunters sights with your pants down. Always good to have something that is this blaze orange color for an emergency signal. At this price I wont feel bad if it breaks or is lost. Works great as a specific task took rather than using another camp shovel for this task.

These sturdy, well-designed trowels have been around AT LEAST 40 years since the 1970s, so not only do they work great, but they have a nice nostalgia, like a Sierra Club Cup. I think these were even in the original Whole Earth Catalog.
