We love the idea of a multi-tool – a folding device that can tackle a wide variety of tasks any of its individual components would be unable to handle on their own. Unfortunately, most of them are woefully unequipped for the kinds of hard use outdoor tools see regularly. But that’s why the folks at Aclim8 have put their efforts into building the COMBAR – world’s first 5-in-1 heavy-duty multi-tool.
There are actually two versions of the tool. The first is equipped with an axe, hammer, and spade attachments. The second – the PRO version – additionally comes with an optional saw blade and a removable knife. But, whichever of the two you choose, you’re getting an incredibly tough backcountry tool built from a combination of aircraft grade aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium. Shockingly, however, the whole thing weighs just 2.8 pounds – making it ideal for camping, through hikes, and extended stays in the great outdoors. And if you’re worried about whether or not it can stand up to the kinds of hardcore tasks you’d require of it, don’t be – it’s been put through hundreds of extreme field tests and even comes with a lifetime warranty. The COMBAR and COMBAR PRO will launch on Kickstarter later this year.
