If you own a pack—be it the daypack you take to the resort or the backcountry pack you tour with—you should have a good multi-tool. You never know when you’ll need to cut salami, fix a binding, or crack a beer during the day. The Gerber Steady adds another seemingly gimmicky but ultimately useful tool to the arsenal, a mini tripod for your point-and-shoot or smart phone. Leave the awkward, held-at-arms-length photos for inebriated college girls trying to create “memories,” and make your impromptu adventuring shots a bit more professional. Just pop up the mini tripod arms, attach the camera to the tool, and set up a photo that’s actually worth taking. Look at you go Ansel Adams.
