Ever notice the cautionary lyrics strewn throughout holiday classics? Warnings like: “How I’ll hate going out in the storm,” “you’d freeze out there,” and that lesser-known “Jingle Bells” verse, “I thought I’d take a ride, and soon Miss Fanny Bright was seated by my side, the horse was lean and lank, misfortune seemed his lot, he got into a drifted bank and then we got upsot”?

Not even yuletide schmaltz can cover up the fact that we’re about to face down winter’s worst, and if you’re going to make out better than ol’ Fanny, you’re going to need a shovel. Specifically, the super packable, all-but-indestructible shovels from DMOS, currently on sale at Huckberry.

Created by snowboarders to strap on their backs, take anywhere on the mountain and hook together onsite, the DMOS shovels were quickly adopted by all sorts for that unbeatable portability, as well as superior leverage, a sharp-toothed blade and tough aircraft-grade aluminum construction.

And right now, two models are $20 off.

BUY ALPHA 2: $119 $139  BUY STEALTH: $100 $119

Both are available in Blackout and Safety Red colorways, so the main difference between the two is size: the Stealth packs down to 18×9″, while the Alpha 2 is a more all-purpose snow scoop at 21.5 x 14.25″.

Put the bigger one in your garage, the smaller one in your trunk, and call it a day.
