Gerber Bear Grylls Compact Multi-Tool
Price: $10 with in-store pickup
Lowest By: $4
Is It Worth It?: Bear Grylls is the host of the popular TV show Man vs. Wild on Discovery Channel — since he's been stranded in so many barren locations and managed to find his way back to civilization so many times, one would have to assume that any useful camping device he endorses is totally worth it. This is the only compact tool that features two full-size Gerber Legendary Blades, nose pliers, wire cutters, both fine-edge and serrated knives, Phillips screwdriver, small and medium flat drivers, lanyard ring, tweezers, and, most essential of all, a bottle opener.
