Developed out of necessity, the Blade Sling is a more civilized approach to packing your Avy shovel. Constructed of the finest nylon webbing shoulder straps with 3/8 bungee, the Blade Sling threads through the handle and clips to the blade. (Shown with Probe Case).
The plastic clips are a bit too small and doily for my application. They are difficult to get on or off my metal BCA shovel. I use this shovel for near-daily cornice chiseling on morning AC. I don't take the sling off to shovel, just extend the handle and chink along on B Route. I like the bungees for that. I will probably replace the clips with something else and see how long the other plastic parts last.
