Comments about GERBER Gorge Folding Shovel:

Very compact, yet completely functional. The shovel was actually steadier than I thought it would be.

Comments about GERBER Gorge Folding Shovel:

Bought for grandson who drives alot in deep snow. Small head, short handle work well in tight spots. Compact enough to leave in truck all the time.

My 10yr old son bought this shovel for digging. He has a metal detector and needed a shovel to dig. The size and weight is perfect for him.

It Digs, It Hammers, and it Folds

Comments about GERBER Gorge Folding Shovel:

I was in need of a shovel to comply with California law regarding camping and campfires, and so I chose this. It was actually the only shovel at my local Sports Authority and it was Gerber so the decision was pretty easy.

The shovel worked great to pound in tent stakes, for which it has a hammer head built in, and it folds to a diminutive size. There are, however, a couple of points of note keeping it from a five star review in my book.

First and foremost, the telescoping handle seems slightly silly. It moves only a couple of inches at most. I wasn't expecting it to be a full-sized garden shovel, but it's adjustability is so slight that it seems like a waste. I'd have preferred the handle to be fixed to give it a little more longevity.

My second gripe, and this is a personal one, but it's made in China. And while I'm sure that the Chinese are fantastic at making shovels, and very concerned about the quality of your camping gear, I'd have gladly payed $10 more to have had this made in the USA.

Overall, three stars for the shovel. It's probably not a lifetime piece of equipment but it will certainly suffice for now.

Compact and durable

Comments about GERBER Gorge Folding Shovel:

For the most part, this is a great tool to use for building small campfire pits, with the added hammer feature for tent stakes.
It is easy to assemble/disassemble, lightweight and strong. Add it to anything you see use to it (camping, gardening, travel, etc.)
Haven't found anything wrong with the product so far.
