Versatility. It's one of the most important values when it comes to the adventurer lifestyle and goes a long way when it comes to gear too. Adventure often happens at a moment’s notice and having equipment that can adapt to suit your ever-evolving journey makes all the difference.

Let's take a look at six of the most versatile pieces of gear that you can use on a daily basis that will also spring you into adventure mode in a flash.



A classic item in the adventurer’s toolkit. For years, Leatherman has consistently provided some of the best multi-tools in the world and that tradition continues on with the Leatherman Rebar

The Rebar multi-tool includes pliers, knives, screwdrivers and the classic can opener. This Leatherman features a sturdy build but won't bog you down with a weight of only 6.7oz (190g).

If you're out on the trails, this multi-tool will come in handy for cutting rope, opening packs of food and tightening up equipment that is getting worn down. This tried, tested, and true unit is essential for even your smallest venture.


LIVSN Flex Canvas Pants

Quality and adaptable apparel is one of the most important components on any adventure. Thanks to LIVSN, versatility is taken to a whole new level as you can easily jump from work mode into adventure mode and never look out of place.

LIVSN's Flex Canvas Pants offer the perfect combination of mobility and durability. The EcoFlex canvas in these pants gives you both flexibility and long-lasting strength for any activity. You get full range of motion with your legs, which keeps you comfortable regardless of your activity. There is also adequate reinforcement at all major stress points giving you durability you might not expect during more challenging adventures. 

To top it off, LIVSN maintained a stylish modern look that will inspire your sense of adventure while keeping you looking sharp.


Piorama A10 Adjustable Duffel Bag

While this piece of gear isn't quite as "everyday," the adjustable duffel bag from Piorama is the perfect single bag for an adventure.

Piarama has designed an expandable bag that instantly adjusts to fit what you need. With adjustable and detachable straps, it can function as a backpack, a duffel bag, and even a sling over your shoulder. 

This bag is great for travel as you can expand or collapse the pack relative to the length of your trip. You can also adjust the size of your pack mid-trip so you can pack big for a trip to the city, but then collapse it for your smaller day trips.


Black Diamond Carabiner

Whether you're hitting the trail for your next adventure or getting stuff done around the house, you can never go wrong keeping a handful of carabiners nearby.

Black Diamond's new Liteforge Screwgate Carabiner is perfectly equipped for the versatility you are looking for. You can use it to hang up gear in your garage or to chill out in your hammock in the backyard. And of course, you can use it on your next adventure for climbing or just attaching extra gear to your pack.

The new Liteforge Screwgate features a keylock nose which is excellent at preventing snagging. It is lightweight but has an impressive closed gate strength of 24 kN (5,395 lbf).


Voile Straps

Similar to a carabiner, having a pack of Voile Straps within reach is always a great idea. These straps are truly versatile and yet simple at heart.

Voile Straps were designed over three decades ago as a unique way to bind skis together. Since then, they have evolved to strap, secure, or repair almost anything. Voile straps are simple, compact, and durable. Plus, they come in a variety of sizes to suit whatever you are up to.

Use them in your garage for storing tools, on your bikepacking trip to secure your gear, or in your vehicle to keep stuff from rolling around on your next road-trip. If you need an adaptable strap, look no further.



Water is life’s most important resource and perhaps it’s most versatile. As adventurers, we push life to its limits and we often find ourselves drinking, purifying, cleaning with, and generally needing the most from our water. It’s no small wonder then there is so much gear surrounding our liquid best friend. This made us wonder though, “Why isn’t there a multi-tool for water?”

That idea became what is know today as MODL (short for modular-bottle). With MODL, we save weight, space, and product waste through combined functionality. At the swap of a cap, MODL can transform from a normal bottle to a hydration pack, camping shower, water filter, and more.

MODL gives you the power of water’s versatility and fits anywhere from the office to the backcountry. When you’ve got your MODL, your water needs are met and you can just focus on the adventure. Check out MODL here.


Versatility For The Win

With these six pieces of gear, the transition from the everyday to adventure is easy. When your gear adapts as seamlessly as you do, it gives you the flexibility and confidence to take that path less traveled when it inevitably pops into view.

Adventure on,
