Cabelas carry a small multi tool/key chain I carried it with me whether upland or waterfowl hunting in place of needle nose. Because of the compact and lightweight design I purchased enough for family and good friends for Christmas. They take little room and does not add much weight in the ammo bag or if carried in an upland vest can be very handy in an emergency. It also folds up to minimize damage while carrying it, and again reduce space that may be needed for more shells, at least in my case. Do not get me wrong they are not a Leatherman or Gerber multi-tool, but they will and have come through in a pinch or emergency for me.
