Rarely does a piece of gear come along that can replace a whole range of other necessities. But that’s exactly what the Shovel from EST Gear can do if you bring it on a trip that involves hiking, camping, overlanding or trail maintenance. That’s because this tactically-inclined shovel is actually more than a dozen tools in one package — shovel, saw, axe, knife, spear, bottle opener, fire starter, wire-cutter, trowel, hex wrench set, nail puller, pick, ruler, hook, screwdriver, whistle compass and rope cutter. And small-item storage inside the hollow handle piece is waterproof to boot.
The EST Shovel is lightweight (2.5lbs) and made to last a lifetime with components forged in 420 high-carbon steel and aircraft-grade aluminum alloy. The well-appointed tool is a packable and impressively useful addition to any adventure that lies ahead of you. And for the next month, the EST Shovel is half-off on Indiegogo; a great value at its usual price of $120, you can get it during the month of May for only $60.
