Review: Sea To Summit Nylon 66 Pocket Trowel
This is a collapsible plastic trowel for digging… umm… holes to the ground for you know what when you’re backpacking.
The trowel in it’s extended form. (Credit: Sea To Summit. Fair use.)
Does it work?
Yes, it digs a hole and packs pretty small. This is also a pretty handy thing for shoveling snow to your pot when you’re melting drinking water in the winter.
Is it good?
I wouldn’t go so far. The collapsible structure is not very tight, aka it clatters cheaply. Same thing with the handle container lid.
This will do but I would recommend checking out other options as well. For example, there’s an aluminum version of this as well. Maybe that would feel like a proper trowel? Or something else entirely.
