DMOS is an acronym that stands for “Do My Own Shit.” To us, the name is rooted in a Do-It-Yourself mentality of self-reliance we find in our home state of Wyoming. We got pissed when cheap plastic shovels would break just when the going got tough. Shoveling snow or digging dirt—we wanted a tool that wouldn’t let us down during heavy mountain storms or on off-the-grid adventures deep into BLM land. We knew we could shape and build something with more grit and toughness. The result was applying a throwback bootstrap mentality to what we built into, hands down, the best shovel in the west.
