What is a shovel?
A shovel is a tool for creating. In nature you use this, for example, to dig a hole or construct a drainage around your tent. By digging a trench with a shovel you carry the water away from your tent.
Schep: a compact outdoor tool
If you are out in nature and regularly need a shovel, a full spa or a shovel is not very easy to tie onto your backpack. Special outdoor scoops have been devised for this, which is also called pioneer scoop.
An outdoor shovel must be compact and have a low weight. Nobody wants to carry a heavy shovel all day on a trip in his backpack. These special outdoor shovels are small in size and foldable at most, so they really take up little space. Usually supplied with a nice bag where the scoop can easily be stored.
