These work great, I used one just over the weekend. It's nice that they disconnect allowing you to store them in the trunk of the car and usually in one of those lower in-floor trunk compartments in most vehicles... very light too. Hasn't bent yet.

Somehow, the words "lifeline" and "emergency" made me think about the practical uses of these shovels in situations where I have to dig a hole to bury a dead body after ending someone else's life to preserve my own.

I've had a set for awhile now. Decent shovel to keep in the trunk during winter, shoveled myself out after work many times with it.

If there was low demand there, wouldn't it make more sense for Costco to lower the price to entice people to buy it?

What’s the price for just one? Can’t imagine going through two emergencies

These are also awesome little shovels to have on the snowmobile or your backpack too when in the backcountry. Mountaineering, winter camping, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, sledding, icefishing etc. At this price, much cheaper than the brand name competition, and also much better quality than the usual cheap plastic offerings.

not a lawyer but if you have killed someone in self-defense you should contact a lawyer, not bury the body

Bonus: These ones are reusable! If you have a second car you can have one reusable shovel in each!!

As long as you're not hoping to use them in an emergency situation in the backcountry. There's a reason good snow shovels like SOS, mammut and voilee cost $60+. Definitely well worth the little extra money if you are venturing in avalanche county.

Sure a sturdier and more expensive shovel for avalanche areas, but I've found plenty of use for these ones to get sleds and vehicles unstuck in bad situations. A decent quality beater shovel that I wouldn't hesitate to throw under stuck pickup tires for traction either
