Made with reinforced Nylon 66, this pocket trowel is lightweight and compact. The handle retracts into the blade to save space in your pack and extends to the same length as an ideal ‘cathole’ should be deep. It's the ideal tool for practicing Leave No Trace principals. Please note that if you are in situations where you may encounter hardened or rocky soil, you should choose our more heavy duty (pun intended!) Alloy Pocket Trowel.
