    I have an old US Army fold-up shovel. It works great and essentially folds to the size of the spade. I picked through a pile of shovels at flea-market to find a US one. It was a pile of "military" shovels. No idea of the vintage but it is a terrific "truck shovel".
    Looks like this one, except mine is OD - https://www.amazon.com/Military-Ori...ocphy=9007370&hvtargid=pla-403695446807&psc=1

    You're not far off. Fire shelters are woven silica bonded to aluminum foil. Fire shelters are designed for radiant heat. They will fail in direct contact with flames. Absolutely a worst-case, last-chance scenario use.

    Any of the vinyl stickers on cloth will lift right off with a little heat.

    A little, like a blow dryer on low, not a heat gun.

    I kid, but haven't forgotten about this sad incident:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yarnell_Hill_Fire

    "The firefighters had apparently deployed fire shelters during the ambush, but the heat of the wildfire soared over 2,000 °F (1,090 °C)."

    "A fire shelter is a safety device of last resort used by wildland firefighters when trapped by wildfires. While such a shelter cannot withstand sustained contact with flames, it can protect a firefighter's life in a short-lived grass fire. Furthermore, it is designed to reflect radiant heat, protect against convective heat, and trap breathable air — most firefighters' deaths are from inhaling hot gases — so that firefighters can survive in non-burning areas surrounded by intense fire for more than an hour."

    Made a movie based on this incident with Josh Brolin and Miles Teller. Good movie, but obviously very sad. Called "Only The Brave"

    If he can afford a $240 shovel, more power to him. I am personally in the wrong business. I would be more interested in knowing what lifestyle puts him in that much real life or death situations often enough to justify his logic.

    What are those attachments for the shovel? I usually carry a shovel in the winter and haven't found a good way to mount it. That looks like it could be my solution!

    Looks likes quickfists on a rail mount. Not sure if its a COTS rail or homemade, but you can make them yourself pretty easily.

    Interesting. I'm not familiar with them so I'll have to look into them a bit more.

    Quickfists are the little grabby clamp bits, then you can mount them on whatever you like. You could make or buy the flat stock and t-slots for the rails pretty easily.

    FWIW we have quickfists holding stuff on our apparatus (EMS/fire) so they're pretty robust.

    My point was that I’d rather rely on a quality tool than the cheapest solution I can find, and a tool that you don’t have with you is worthless. With a Diamondback cover like what I have, a folding shovel like that is easy to store and access.
