Tool Logic

Credit Card Companion

RECOIL OFFGRID - - Pocket Preps -

It’s hard to beat the ap­peal of a tool that’s easy to use, af­ford­able, and ac­tu­ally use­ful not just in a pinch, but in daily life, too. The Credit Card Companion is an ev­ery­day carry (EDC) item with nine tools in to­tal, all of which are housed in a com­pact-yet­durable ABS body. While you won’t win any geo­caching con­tests us­ing the com­pass, it can give you at least a gen­eral clue of where to go if you’re lost. There are also tweez­ers, a screw­driver, a combo can/bot­tle-opener, a 2-inch ser­rated blade, and more.

Pros:

Abun­dant num­ber of tools in such a slen­der pack­age Tools seam­lessly tuck into the card for con­ve­nient carry. Sharp blade is great for cut­ting fi­brous ma­te­rial, like rope or branches.

Price tag won’t break the piggy bank

Cons:

To use most of the tools, you have to sep­a­rate them from the card. And be­cause they’re small, they of­fer lim­ited grip space and lever­age, es­pe­cially the piece that holds the canopener, bot­tle-opener, and screw­driver.
