There are a variety of different multi-tools on the market, each coming with a different set of tools, which will suit whatever your camping needs: whether you’re an experienced camper or just heading out for a weekend excursion with your family. To help you choose which multi-tool is right for you we’ve compiled a list of our top 7 recommendations of the best camping multi-tool. 

Throughout history, tools have been combined to serve more than one use. In Roman times, it’s likely that people combined tools for eating, to make their tools more portable. However, it wasn’t until World War II that the multi-tool garnered worldwide popularity.

This was because of the success of the Swiss Army Knife, developed by Victorinox. This was the first time that a multi-tool had been marketed for the masses. It wasn’t just used for camping purposes, people from multiple professions carried them with them, such as soldiers and artists.

The perfect multi-tool will help with everything from cooking to cutting rope.

 

Why should I invest in a multi-tool? 

Preparation is the main reason we would recommend taking a multi-tool on your camping trips. Multi-tools are eminently useful. Out of the multi-tools we have reviewed, they range from 9 to 31 different tools and functions. So, depending on your camping emergency, you’re likely to find a solution for it in your multi-tool – even if it’s something you haven’t predicted! Whether it be opening a bottle of beer at the end of a long hike, around the campfire, or using the knife to break up timber or prepare your campsite. With the right multi-tool, most eventualities are covered. 

With the adaptability of a multi-tool, it’s also the most portable option for your camping needs. With a multi-tool and a little imagination, you have on hand the solution to that loose thread, or loose screw, in your kit. Instead of lugging around a big toolbox, they all fit neatly and conveniently in your pocket, making the multi-tool an efficient assistant, that you can take with you everywhere. 

Multi-tools mean that you’re always prepared. When you’re heading into the great outdoors, you never know what could happen. Multitools prepare you for the unpredictability of nature. Multi-tools aren’t a replacement for a traditional set of tools, especially for your DIY needs. Especially if you’re primitive camping, for example, we’d recommend you still taking with you a camping hatchet. These are designs to be far more heavy duty than multi-tools and will be far more useful for heavy-duty tasks, such as clearing your campsite of branches or cutting up firewood. However, for the majority of camping needs, the handy multi-tool can replace this bulky kit. 

Swiss Army Knife 

As we have mentioned, the world popularity of the multi-tool was initiated with the Swiss Army Knife. This is what first springs to mind for many when we think of a multi-tool. With the trust in the brand, Victorinox, and nearly 100 years of development and expertise, our first recommendation is a modern update of the classic Swiss Army Knife.
