    K2 Rescue Shovel Plus is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely useful I was skeptical at first, as it felt a little flimsy. I was pleasantly surprised after using it in adverse conditions to build a snow cave with my 10 year old daughter. The metal blade allowed us to hack our way through multiple layers of ice between snow. That wouldn't have gone well with my older plastic bladed shovel (which sat mostly unused in the snow the whole time) The best part is being able to adjust this from a shovel to a hoe. Really made scraping away hard layers and digging sideways a lot easier, and loose snow/ice removal was a breeze.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good shovel, unnecessary kit The packability was the main reason I bought it. The shape of the handle and blade gives it good strength in tough conditions. The way the blade doesn't extend above to accommodate the handle means that it packs nice and small into the backpack. I had the telepro and it was a bit tougher to pack. I like how the cutting edge of the blade isn't straight so it bites in better. The ability to use it as a hoe is nice but not something I use very often. I really wish you could buy the model down without the rescue kit, I got this one on sale so I got it anyway. I am sure that K2 skis are nice but my friends and I are all snowboarders and we all have this $10 set of bolts we will never use. Seems like a waste of money and resources for a lot of us but then again if it wasn't on sale none of us would have bought this model. I would recommend the one without the rescue kit but not this model unless it's on sale.
