Gear to Get You Going
Leatherman’s Signal survivalist multi-tool is designed specifically for the outdoors, and this one-of-a-kind multi-tool is as apt for the hardened hiker as it is for casual campers. The tool set was culled from conversations with trained survivalists, who placed particular emphasis on tools that provide a way to communicate sans tech — like a ferrocerium fire starter and a whistle. The Signal also incorporates outdoor staples like a can opener, a saw, a hammer and an awl, alongside several others, for a total of 19 tools in one unit.
