Made by Fiskars and is an updated/improved version of the US military folding shovel, features a fiberglass reinforced nylon handle and a steel blade that can be locked at 90 degrees and features a serrated edge. Folds up to about 9"x6" and folds out to roughly 2' long. A very solid product allegedly used by the USMC and Finnish military, excellent for car emergencies and camping, it will beat those wiggly aluminum car snow shovels any day (particularly for digging and chopping ice), and has been extensively tested to survive abuse. Make what you will of the original non-sale price, but either way these are not dollar store quality and the price/build quality reflects that. There is also a model with a fold out forged pick, but that one is not on sale.
The Gerber "Gorge" folding shovel is also on sale for $20, $10 cheaper than MEC and a dollar away from a historic low price according to CCC. It's heavier, not as compact, has has a telescoping handle and hammer function for driving tent pegs, but still a very solid product from the reviews.
