Whites is my choice of equipment. It's dependable, reliable, durable, and easy to use.  The shovel is a lesche, very strong shovel, I have broken many digging out there but this one should pass the test on durability. I use the Prizm 2, the Prizm 3, and just acquired the MXT. Beautiful machines. 
Always remember!! Safety first!! Carry protection in the woods especially if alone! Here's what I carry.
