Different Types of Tactical Tools

Expeditionary trips are taken for a number of different reasons – guys’ weekend at the hunting lodge, a rock climbing trip and sometimes, even deployment from the military can be the beginning of an expeditionary mission. All of these various trip types have a plethora of changing needs that require an assortment of tools. This is where tactical tools come into play – particularly when you need to find solutions to hardware problems.

A key tool for any tactical trip is a knife. The number of various things you can simplify or fix with a knife is endless. For instance, you may come across some brush that cannot walk through, so you would use a knife to help cut down some of it. Hypothetically, you may come across a wild animal that is looking to attack and a knife is a quick, effective weapon to draw in such a situation.

Multi-tools are also incredibly effective in an expeditionary scenario. One such item is the Skeletool SS from Leatherman, which has a stainless steel combo blade, removable pocket clip, carabineer, bottle opener, pliers and a bit driver all in one 5 oz. tool. If you need a quick clip when you’re rock climbing, this tool will do the trick. If the front plate on your radar is loose on a boating trip, use the bit driver to screw the front back on. The options are endless with multi-tools.

One of the most important tools for any tactical trip is some sort of navigational tool, like a compass or GPS system. You may think that a tool like a compass is outdated, but it is crucial to any hunter. It doesn’t make noise (that could startle animals) and doesn’t need a power source. You can even wear one like a watch, like a Suunto M-9 with Velcro Strap Compass. If you learn how to read one, you will always know where true north lies.

Speaking of watches, ordinary department store watches are not going to cut it out in the middle of the desert or on an arctic plain, you’ll need something rugged. The Casio G-Shock series watches are perfect for any kind of expeditionary trip – they can withstand a lot of potential damage.

Tactical tools are just as important as any other item you bring on a trip, so it is good to be informed about them.
