For outdoor adventuring, especially over the course of multiple days or even weeks, there are a lot of tools an outdoorsman might need. However, if you’re trying to keep your load to a minimum — both in weight and quantity of items — that can be a bit of a problem. But it’s a problem the folks at Adventure Mate have helped mitigate with their new AM-V2 5-in-1 camping tool.
The 2nd version of Adventure Mate’s signature tool, the AM-V2 is an impressive, transforming device that combines the functions of a camp axe, shovel, wood saw, hammer, and tent peg puller/bottle opener — all managed via simple and sturdy interchangeable heads alongside a secure, patented 2-stage CAM locking mechanism to ensure security in use. The handle — which stores the removable, replaceable saw blade when not in use — is built from carbon-fiber-reinforced nylon with an ergonomic rubber grip, which is also Cerakote-finished for extra durability. And the whole thing comes with its own carry case to keep everything together in transit from campsite to campsite. Back this project on Kickstarter starting at $219 to get one of these handy outdoor multi-tools for yourself.
