Let's face it, most of us don't spend much time during the week out in the wilderness — making that serrated saw blade on your pocketknife pretty useless. The Victorinox Cybertool Lite Multi-Tool ($115) is intended more for the kind of guy who sees more keyboards than leaves day-to-day. With tools like multiple screwdrivers (including a mini flathead), a wire stripper, cutter, and crimper, hex sockets, a ballpoint pen, and a white LED flashlight, you're bound to find plenty of uses for this handy knife. And for the off-hours, it also includes a cork screw and a bottle opener (perhaps the most useful tools of all).
Survivalist icons like Bear Grylls make due in the wilderness thanks to their experience, their wits, and plenty of equipment. You might not have what it takes to rough it like Bear, but the Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Pack ($950) might make you feel like giving it a shot. The pack comes with every Gerber Bear Gryils product in existence, placed skillfully in his Commando 60 survival pack. So if you've got what it takes to turn off Survival programming and actually take on an adventure of your own, this pack should equip you for just about anything, except maybe drinking your own urine.
