The Recon Survival Tool is a shovel, hatchet, saw, knife, hammer, and firestarter built into one handy gadget. Made of high-quality stainless steel, this thing will help you do everything from chop wood to dig a latrine while you’re camping.  

The best part? The Recon only measures 17 inches long and weighs a mere two pounds (a hatchet by itself often weighs that much). It’s a must-have for your car and will prove ultra-useful for all but the most weight-conscious backpackers.
