The Alloy Pocket Trowel is a durable, lightweight and compact backpacking trowel. The handle retracts into the blade to save space in your backpack and extends to the same length as the ideal ‘cathole’ depth. It's the perfect tool for practicing Leave No Trace principles in the backcountry and is made from a lightweight and strong 6066-T6 aluminum alloy.
- Strong, ultralight aluminum alloy
- Compact design for easy packing
- Storage space in handle for lighter or toilet paper
Suitable for use in rocky ground, or soil with a lot of roots? Absolutely. The shaft and hardened blade are made to the same specification as avalanche shovels – the Alloy trowel will chop through rocky soils or roots with ease.
Worth the premium over a ‘garden center’ plastic trowel? Definitely. We regularly find the broken remains of plastic trowels discarded in the backcountry (which is the absolute antithesis of Leave No Trace).
Field repairable? Possibly. If the locator pin should become displaced, it can be moved back into position – email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
