What I Got For Christmas

I thought this would be a fun post to see what everyone has gotten under their tree this Christmas. I'll start with what I got this Christmas and post my review of each item.

Leatherman Surge Multi-Tool

I did a lot of research on Multi-tools and I kept coming back to leatherman over any other brand that I have found. I have had several of the cheap mutli-tools over the years and have broken them all.

I replaced the cheap Mutli-tools with a small Swiss Army knife and I can't count how many times I have used it. I have been using my Swiss Army knife for the past 3 years. I have recently been doing things that require certain tools that my Swiss Army knife could not provide.

In my search for the mutli-tool that had the tools I needed, I found the Leatherman Surge that had almost every tool I needed on a daily basis. I need a mutli-tool that I could use at home, work and in the woods.

Things I look for in a mutli purpose knife/tool are; for more information please visit their website

  1. Large Blade & Small Blade
  2. Scissors
  3. Pliers
  4. Philips & Flat Head (Small & Large)
  5. Metal File
  6. Wood Saw
The Leatherman Surge and rest of of their product line is built to last, I love the beefy feel and solid stainless steel of the Surge. I'm a carbon steel kinda guy when it comes to my knives, but I can settle for stainless steel in my multi-tool. I will probably follow up with an update on how my Surge holds up to my tasks later this year. I would highly recommend this Multi-tool/Brand to any one looking for superior made tool.

In Canada the Leatherman Surge runs between $100 -$115 in most retail stores.

MEC High Camp Cookset

The high camp cookset is really nice for the price. This set will run you $35.00 at the Mountain Equipment Co-Op website or in-store.

These pots feature bail handles with stainless steel rivets, stepped bottoms to prevent warping, and lids that double as frying pans. These lids are rounded for easier cleaning. An aluminum pot gripper is included. I really like this gripper, its extremely light weight and can be used on the lid/frying pan or pots. This cookware set would feed 2-3 people depending on the food made.

This is a lightweight set, that I will put to good use. Having not used any other cook sets like Zebra or similar. I will definitely find out this spring and summer when I head out in to the woods.

I also received socks, clothing etc... not anything that is bushcraft/wilderness survival/camping or otherwise related items. I will post my survival pack and the items I do carry with me in a later post and also any new items that I might come across.

Thank you for reading, I hope you have enjoyed my blog.

Awesome post! .I love cookbooks, I own so many of them. I feel like sometimes I see the same recipes over and over with just little tweaks here and there. This book I felt like there were quite a few recipes that I had never seen. Thanks!
