The bug out bag topic is an interesting one, and it seems a lot of people have different opinions on what they think they need in the bag. This is a subject I will breach in a future post, however I want to focus on an extremely valuable tool I think everyone should have, a Multi Tool. There are many different types, and sizes. I prefer the Gerber brand Multi Tool, but Leatherman makes some top of the line tools as well.
The Multi Tool is similar to the Swiss Army knife, in the fact that it has a variety of tools that fold and are stored in the handle. However the Multi Tools also fold open and contain the workhorse, the pliers. All of the tools included work as they should, are solid, and made of stainless steel. I prefer the standard larger size, not the compact sizes. I have looked all over the internet for these tools, and I have found the best prices for these on Amazon.
