Chums Vortex Utility Wrench Review

Chums Utility WrenchSummer is a wonderful time to escape from our routines and spend some time in the mountains. Whether that's a day hike or an extended camping trip the most unappealing task, in my opinion, is the packing. Would you agree? At times I've felt I'm packing the whole house just to leave my house. This can be easily discouraging and you may even find yourself saying, "Let's just stay home." The right gear can help you overcome such tempting thoughts. Today I want to talk about a nifty little tool that will work to consolidate the lengthy camping list.

The Chums Vortex utility wrench is a smart way to carry a lot of tools in one easy carabiner. The Vortex wrench features hex-bit, SAE and metric openings. It works with wing nuts, square nuts, and wire nuts. A novice can figure this one out. When I first used it I simply ran the wrench along the bolt until I found a fit and then gave it a twist. Super easy to use. I found when I would twist it around the split ring would sometimes get in the way. Either remove it entirely if it bugs you or shift it to the other side. Also the 3/4 gate is perfect for bottle opening.

Camping, backpacking, hiking it's all about consolidation isn't it? This little wrench adds to that mission. So check the box labeled tools and lets get out the door this summer.
