Default So I've got a small bag...

So I just bought a new pack, one of the AK 15L bags. I wanted something pretty low profile but would still be able to carry my poles, etc. I am now faced with the decision of what shovel I can fit in there. I would like something with aluminum construction and possibly even a snow saw built into the handle. Now that being said, I am wondering if such a shovel is possible with such a small backpack. Any good input is welcome. Thanks.

Whew, 15L is awfully small. I use a 20L Dakine Helipro and it's about as small as I could imagine going.

Definitely go with an aluminum shovel. I wouldn't trust a plastic one. You'll just have to look for one with a small to medium blade. If you want a saw, you better get one that's incorporated into the saw handle because you're really going to be pressed for space.

Did you even try? Check the dimensions listed for shovels against the dimensions of your backpack. Sites like backcountry have all those specs.
