Those familiar with the older similar shovel that was red: this one is a new version that is super similar. Just redone and in a slightly more lovable colour. The blade is sturdy and you'd feel confident bashing through melt freeze snow without damaging the blade. So far from use I haven't had any problems for build quality.
The grip fabric on the shaft does tend to get a little snow caught on it during use if you're near zero degrees (or solar pit above -5c). But it's manageable and minimal. If you're really concerned about moisture in your bag that might be annoying and you could cut it off.
