Go for the D grip

Purchased for a backup shovel; it's decent but a few dislikes: 1) the metal pins are very tough to work with gloves on and I would not want to waste precious seconds fiddling with a shovel pin (two of them) while my friend is buried. 2) the T grip is really just setup for right handed people. I'd suggest just sticking with their other shovel and go for the D grip!

Great Shovel, Couple of Defects

I really like the shape and size of this shovel. I’m a firm believer that a smaller blade is faster an more efficient in Avalanche debris.

The downside to this shovel: The shaft grip is a great idea but it slipped after only a month and I had to cut it off. And finally, the notches in the T-Grip handle get full of snow, which then melts and gets your gloves soaked. A real pain in the butt when you’re digging kitchens and snow caves while winter camping. I made some modification using hockey tape to get around the later issue.
