The 20+ years of service essential called snow shovel disappeared from my porch. Strong, metal, light weight, ergonomically correct.

The stores didn't have anything that impressed me.

I know where to turn for recommendations.

Also, the backpack is on its last legs. Strong, can carry a laptop safely/securely, lots of compartments.

Thank you.

I don't know about snow shovels, but here are two places that make me drool over how functional their backpacks look:

https://www.patagonia.com/shop/luggage-backpacks
https://www.mysteryranch.com/

Do I wish they were made of natural material, Made in the USA, and more reasonably priced? Yes, yes I do.
Are they still awesome? Absolutely.
 
Can you hear that? That's my theme music. I don't know where it comes from. Check under this tiny ad:
