When life gives you lemons, grab the FiveJoy Backcountry Shovel, the ultimate survival tool, to get you out of any jam. It’s portable, surprisingly small, and packable ensuring that it won’t take up too much space when not in use. However, you’d be hard pressed not to find daily utility for this little helper, especially while camping or road tripping.

Each shovel serves as a solid multi-functioning item. It’s a shovel, hammer, axe, hoe, escape hammer, saw, knife, wire cutter, bottle opener, fire starter, whistle, and paracord. All in one small but tactical package fit for any outdoorsman. With such a wide variety of uses, it’s easy to see how the FiveJoy might be able to get you out of a bind, or several, at once. You can use the shovel and hoe to dig your car out of the snow, cut woods for shelter and fire with the axe’s serrated saw blade and start that fire with the built-in fire-starter. It’s an all-in-one package that makes the uncertainties of the outdoors a little less risky. Available now for $72. [Purchase]
