What makes the G3 Women’s SpadeTECH Alpinist Elle Shovel gender specific? A fair question. How about a smaller blade designed to move snow with finesse instead of brute strength? Indeed. And a compact handle that fits better in a proportionally smaller pack? Sure. All this while maintaining a high strength-to-weight ratio? Yes, that’s the ticket. Those features and a snazzy color makes the G3 Women’s SpadeTECH Alpinist Elle Shovel the world’s first specially designed for her.
