When it comes to camping, it’s all about keeping it simple. This philosophy is paramount for backpackers, but it often extends to the other various styles of camping and outdoor adventures as well. The less stuff you bring, the less stuff you have to keep track of. But that doesn’t mean that you should leave everything at home and risk your safety, which is where the survival multi-tools come in. Multi-tools are popular among the camping and outdoors demographic for offering the flexibility of many useful tools combined with the simplicity of having it all in one place. Here are some of our favorite all-in-one survival gadgets you can find at SunnySports. Remember that any order over $50 receives free shipping!
As multi-tools go, this one from HighGear is unique in that it’s not your typical 80-different-kinds-of-screwdrivers model. This tool is actually meant to cater to the aspiring survivalist, or at the very least, the adventurous outdoorsman. Equipped with an LED light, digital thermometer, floating dial compass, safety mirror and whistle, dry storage compartment, and a 5x magnifying glass, it barely takes up any room in your pocket, but offers a number of pertinent uses. The battery it uses for the LED flashlight is easily changeable on your own. For the price, having the Adventure Tool on hand when exploring the outdoors is a no-brainer.
