There is nothing quite like heading out on a trip that’s more about the journey than the destination. Wandering through remote backcountry, while nights pass camping under the stars, completely connecting with each moment.
Trips like this also requires you to be independent and self-reliant while in the field, which starts with having rugged and dependable equipment. But you need a lot more than just dependability, you need functionality. Whether your planning for a backpacking trip, or looking to equip your adventure rig or RV, generally you want gear designed to keep you safe and comfortable while exploring far off the grid.
One of the best tools you can take with you on a trip off the beaten path is an axe, and Off Grid Tools’ Survival Axe Elite is one that won’t disappoint.
For starters, the best back country gear is multifunctional, and the OGT Survival Axe Elite has no shortfalls in functions boasting 31 features integrated from the axe head to the handle. Aside from the obvious axe edge, the head of this tool includes a variety of hex-head socket sizes, a hammer head and claw, bottle opener, wire cutter, nail puller, gas valve shut off wrench, and more.
Built into the ergonomically designed, 33% glass-filled nylon handle is a comfortable and secure feel in hand, and contains a foldable hacksaw blade, steel glass punch, seatbelt cutter, and more.
Measuring in at just 11.70 inches in length and weighing in at a mere 1.60 pounds it just might be the most important item you bring with you into the backcountry.
