Penfield has been making hardy outerwear to withstand the elements since 1975.
So, it comes as no surprise that the brand also produces some pretty cool camping accessories, ideal for a weekend away with your mates. We’ve picked three products that fall into the category of “survival tools” and, thanks to the amount of times your chums have chipped their teeth trying to open beer bottles on camping trips, we’d be inclined to say these are necessities.
Save your molars the undue stress and invest in one of the Penfield titanium multi-tools, complete with bottle opener and a dual usage spork. These are perfect for both campfire meals and fending off small bears. And to top it all off, don’t forget to pick up one of Volcom’s metal flasks and fill it to the brim with rum or coffee… or both. Just as everyone begins to get on your nerves, you can retreat back to your tent to practice your embroidery skills with Patagonia’s Expedition sewing kit (handy for mending a ripped tent, too).
