Having a Stainless Steel Shovel with a Long Fiberglass Handle whilst camping makes sense a lot of sense. Especially when you can easily store it on your roof rack. You'll never go back to a small folding camping shovel once you've converted to a full-length shovel.
Shovel With Fibreglass Long Handle
The long handle will reduce stress on your back and knees when digging and is ideal for people who find it hard to bend over. The large boot sized footrests also help provide a sturdy placement for your foot, making digging a breeze.
What's so good about fibreglass handles?
A fibreglass handle will stand the test of time in harsh environments when out in the sun. However, when wooden handles are left out in the sun, they can start to splinter if not well maintained, which can be pretty painful when you're using them. With a fibreglass handle, you won't have this issue as it easily glides through your hands with its smooth finish.
- Very strong.
- No splinters.
- No maintenance is needed.
- A long handle saves your back.
What's so good about Stainless Steel Shovels?

When it comes to shovels, a stainless steel blade and a fibreglass handle are the best options for surviving life in a harsh environment. Not only will it last the test of time, but it will also save your back and make digging a breeze.
