Great, but..

    Pretty large shovel blade capable of moving a lot of snow fast. But, if you find yourself digging pits quite often, the generously curved blade can be a bit of a nuisance when trying to make a clean vertical face for accurate tests. Otherwise, solid shovel with no other apparent drawbacks.

    The Best

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This shovel is awesome. My fiance has the Deploy 3 and I like the 7 much more. The extra volume is really nice to have. Just like the Deploy 3 this shovel is easy to setup. The construction and quality of both these shovels is top notch. If there was one thing I had to complain about on this shovel it would be the amount of curve in the handle. Other than that I love this thing!

    Will this shovel fit in the Dynafit Chugach 32 pack?

    Moving Snow

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This shovel is one of my favorite tools. My buddy has the same one and we mostly use them to build backcountry booters. In the winter I keep it in my car in the event i have to dig out my car. If you can fit the deploy 7 in your pack get it. The smaller shovels just don't move snow as fast.

    Does this fit in last years Dakine Heli Pro pack?

    Hey Kassia,



    Yes this will fit in last years Dakine Heli Pro pack with the shovel disassembled.

    Hi Jared,

    Do you think the deploy 7 will be able to fit in my Arcteryx quintic 28? The dimensions I found for the pack are:
    Length x Width X Depth
    22.5” x 10”/14” (top/bottom) x 8”/9.5” (top/bottom)

    Thanks!
