The definitive ultralight backpacking trowel. When it comes time to dig a cat-hole, stop messing around with rocks, the heel of your boot, or your trekking poles, and go for the Deuce of Spades. The design and aluminum alloy construction of this trowel makes super quick work of digging. Let's be honest, digging a proper cat-hole that's really 6-8 in deep is really hard without a trowel, so adding the Deuce to your backpacking kit is the smart and most weight-efficient way to Leave No Trace. The Deuce #3 is the largest of the trowels in the Deuce lineup and is specifically designed for digging in hard, rocky environments, aka the High Sierra. Made from thicker material, it is twice as strong as the Duece #2, so you can really pry your way through rocks and small roots. It only weighs 0.97 oz (27g)! Plus, this trowel can be used as a tent anchor in sand.
