NOMAD Survival Multitool

$35 from Amazon »

I like NOMAD's addition of a firestarter to their Survival Multitool, but am a little disappointed it's just a foldout manual metal rod, and not the click 'n' flame wand lighter it looks like. That the whole tool looks...

CRKT Freyr Axe

$79.40 from Amazon »

Nothing fancy or special about the Freyr tactical axe. Except that there's nothing fancy or special about CRKT's strong and simple bearer of the chop. If that's a refreshing change to you, amidst all the overengineered...

YETI Hondo Base Camp Chair

$299.99 from YETI »

The empty weight of YETI's forthcoming Hondo Base Camp Chair is a hefty 16-1/2 pounds. But I think its load bearing capacity more than compensates for the additional load it imposes. During testing, the chair's break...

MecArmy Titanium Carabiner Flashlight

Stikkan Kindling Maker

I was a fan of the Stikkan kindling maker before it caused a huge fight between me and She-Ra: Princess of Power. I said, "Hey, look at this firewood splitter video. You mount it to a wall or tree outside and it makes...
