Don't drop a deuce in the woods without it. TentLab's Deuce is an ultra lightweight backpacking trowel that will help you deal with all kinds of shit during hiking and camping trips. At 0.6 ounces, or the weight of 3-1/2 teaspoons of water, the Deuce is your righthand man for cover-ups. Your cleaner. Your perfect 6-inch-deep gravedigger for the bodily function you gotta get rid of quick, before it infiltrates a water source, or another hiker's shoe.
TentLab says the Deuce trowel is "dramatically minimalist," but with the "unique, mind-bending stealth feature" of an option for handle-down use. Flipped, the little Deuce can produce up to 4 times the digging power in hard ground, breaking up tough dirt, and ejecting entangled rocks so they're ready for the scoop end to cast aside in preparation for the poo burial. Deuce length, 6.8", is also handy for ensuring you've dug out the requisite 6" hole before making your deposit.
TentLab customers also report using the Deuce as a shoehorn, sand stake, and to loosen bear canister screws. It's made from 7075-T6 aluminum.
