  • Multi tools make camping safer and simpler

    2010-05-18

    Camping is an excellent way to get in touch with friends, family and nature itself, and with summer fast approaching, many families across the country are gearing up for an excursion to the great outdoors. Campers that like to be prepared for whatever may come their way have long looked to the multi-tool, a Swiss-army style gadget that incorporates a number of tasks in one item, to help them out while they are roughing it. Yet the question arises, which is the ultimate multi-tool?

    One of the more popular choices is the Zilla multi tool. This hearty stainless steel contraption boasts a number of functions including spring-loaded pliers, a survival knife, wire cutters and strippers, flat and Philips head screwdrivers, bottle opener, clip and sheath all in a package that weighs a mere 7.4 ounces.

    The camper who likes to go fishing as well might prefer the Lil Guppie Multi-tool, a nifty gadget that features a 10 millimeter monkey wrench, a full strength carabiner and a high carbon stainless steel blade in addition to more traditional multi-tool features like screwdrivers and bottle openers.

    For a sleeker package, travelers might opt for the Tool Logic Survival card, a slim multi-tool the size of a credit card that features a fixed blade serrated knife, loud signal whistle, tweezers, a toothpick, a red LED flashlight and a firestarter magnesium flint.
