The 1980s were a strange decade for sure, what with the laughable fashion sense and terrible music. Oddly enough it brought a great deal of excellent television. It was a time period that saw the debut of “Alf,” “Married…with Children,” and “The Simpsons.” Now, for those of you not in the know, I want to take a minute and introduce you to one of the finest programs to have ever graced the television airwaves. In addition to the aforementioned programs, eighties television also delighted us weekly with the inventive applications of one Angus MacGyver, of “MacGyver.” You see, MacGyver was a member of the fictional Division of External Services and later the Phoenix Foundation, where he put to use his years of experience as a scientist and bomb team technician on his numerous secret missions. Typically, those missions landed him in a life-or-death situation where the only escape was to improvise some amazing device using all of his scientific know-how, whatever random items happened to be lying around and his trusty Swiss army knife. They were usually pretty over-the-top, but that is what made the show so great.
Obviously, no one is here to merely sing the praises of “MacGyver.” In fact, I have a bone to pick with the man. I would like to know why he chose the Swiss army knife over the arguably superior multi-tool. After all, pliers are a pretty handy tool to have around and would no doubt have made his life just a little bit easier. Regardless, Keepshooting.com has something that would interest MacGyver or anyone else who aspires to join the legendary Phoenix Foundation – the Gerber® multi-tool pouch.
If you carry a Swiss army knife, a multi-tool, a pocket knife or anything similar then the Gerber® multi-tool pouch is right up your alley. Slip this two-pocket pouch onto your belt and keep your tool of choice with you at all times, ready to serve at a moment’s notice.
Even if you don’t normally carry any tools I am sure you could pull a MacGyver and come up with a thousand different uses for the pouch. The Gerber® multi-tool pouch is quite a steal at only $2.95.
