Expect the Unexpected
You might not want to carry all your tools with you to your next campout, but an extra flashlight and bottle opener will always come in handy, and a pocketknife blade never hurts to have while out in the woods. You never know when you are going to need this stuff, but if you do, you’ll be thankful you had the right tools, and you’ll definitely notice if you don’t.
Some multi-tools are destined for the junk drawer. Others, like this 7-in-1 option from Bell + Howell actually do come in handy whether you’re out camping or just hanging out around the house. It has a convenient clip if you want to keep it close at all times, but it’s also great to store in the car or out in the shed for those “just in case” scenarios.
