do you actually need the knife on the mountain? Seems like unnecessary weight and bulk in your pocket to me, unless the blade saved your ass.

There are lots of opportunities for using a knife when you're outdoors. Also, the screwdriver on that thing is pretty awesome (feels almost like a full size one) compared to the other alternatives.

Although it may seem like a trivial use, sometimes a blade is the quickest way to get compacted snow off the base of your binding. I've also used it to get compacted snow off the bottom of my daughter's boot when she can't get her boot into her binding any more.

wouldn't the drive bits work just as well? Just scratchin my brain, not arguing lol

And yeah outdoors you always need tools...I just don't consider a catered mountain resort an "outdoors" scenario where a blade is needed which is why I'm curious to know if it has actually been beneficial

They'd work, but not as well. You have more of a reach with a knife, plus you can take the snow off with a scraping or slicing motion. With a pocket screwdriver you're pretty much limited to a stabbing motion. Mind you I'm talking about a proper folding knife with a 4" blade, not some dinky penknife.

I've been looking for another combo tool for my fire gear. Thank you haha

Anywho, having a small tool on the mountain is super useful. You never know when a binding or highback will loosen up, especially in the park.
