The Leatherman Signal Is the Multi-Tool for the Survivalist

If you need a multi-tool to handle fixes around the house, you have a lot of options. If you need one to help you survive the wild, you're going to have a tougher time finding a reliable option. Leatherman wants to fill that void with Signal. It's the multi-tool designed for outdoor survival. After much research, Leatherman concluded the three things survivalists need are the ability to start a fire, proper tools to perform an array of tasks, and a way to communicate that doesn't rely on a battery. They answered these questions by including a fire starter, a plethora of tools, and a whistle. The aforementioned tools include pliers, wire cutters, knives, a saw, an awl, a hammer, and much more. So maybe put off getting lost in the wilderness until it comes out in the summer.

A Hand Warmer, Phone Charger, and Flashlight in One SHOP

In an effort to conserve packing space, we like our gear to pull double-duty, and, when possible, triple-duty. Not only will this aluminum cylinder warm up in less than five minutes to keep your hands toasty, but it can also charge your phone and act as a pocket flashlight. It can stay warm for up to three hours to make winter excursions more bearable, and give your phone a little jolt or the path in front of you a little better lighting. Able to be recharged over 500 times, it’s the ultimate companion for cold months or late night expeditions. ... check it out
