Shovels

Im confused as how i carry a shovel with my heli pro pack, Ive had my pack for like 3 years but ive never carried a shovel. Its kinda a stupid question, but im looking into buying a shovel, and where i keep the blade, will guide me as to which size shovel to buy.

Its either the BCA Chugach pro ext (12" blade) or the companion shovel (10" blade and shorter) Both have oval shafts to keep them really strong.

If anyone has pictures with a shovel in the pack it would help a ton.

Sorry for the random question haha. Im building up my urban assault arsenal for when i can start riding again (stupid knee) and im gonna be building some kickers and getting into back country so. Id rather get the nice shit to start off with. like doing things right

the front zippered pocket is for shovels, but yours may not fit, in which case it will have to go in the main compartment

come on, there's 2 compartments

I have always used Voile but after this write up it's even more of a no brainer. Hope this helps.

Buy a shovel and stuff it in there where it best fits. If ya can't figure it out, don't carry a shovel.
