    I feel that a Gerber Multitool or some form of multitool is essential for survival. You never know when you are going to need tools, but having one solid multitool could save you from a ton of sticky situations. The only downside to the tool is that it can be easily lost if put into a not-so-safe part of your pack.

    So long as your mutitool is taken care of, it is a tool that will last you a long time. Personally, I have used my Gerber Multitool for all sorts of different situations. This tool can come into good use for something as simple as needing to open a can of food.

    Do you use any sort of multitool?

    Some basic tools such as the tomahawk have more than one use, but personally I see the multi-tool as an urban implement. I prefer to carry the right tool for the job in hand when going into the wilderness.

    I have never liked multitools very much, I think they are very over rated and over priced, I prefer the right tool for the right job.

    I have a Gerber but prefer my Leathernan Wave and it goes on my belt next to my folding Shrade ( urban) Kbar in the woods.
    I never put anything of that high of value and importance in my pack .
    Multi tools have gotten me out of some real jams .
