ULA Helix "Ice Axe" Potty Trowel on 12/02/2010 22:56:55 MST Report Post Print

Rating: 1 / 5

I bought one at the "kick-off" to use on the PCT. It broke when I was chopping snow to melt for drinking water. I was appalled when I looked at the broken pieces to see how weak this "ice axe" truly is. This tool makes no sense as either an ice axe or a potty trowel. I replaced it with a Camp Corsa, which, at 7.2 oz., is a REAL ice axe, not a dangerous toy. To their credit, ULA refunded my money. It would have been better had they not sold it to me in the first place.
