For multi-tool makers and everyday carry aficionados, the wallet-friendly form factor of a credit card has a strong appeal. The M.020 Camping Tool Card is another interesting example of this, squeezing a number of campsite-oriented functions into a package that will be right at home in your pocket.

The M.020 Camping Tool Card is the latest from Tactica Gear, whose magnetic hex bit multitool we looked at back in 2019. The M.020 is a decidedly slimmer implement with a thickness of just 6.5 mm, meaning that while it's not strictly shaped like a card, it can be easily slid into a wallet or pocket as you head into the wild or simply go about your daily business.

Crafted from Grade-5 titanium or stainless steel, the M.020 measures 92 mm (3.6 in) long and 56 mm (2.2 in) wide. Built in is a ferrocerium striker rod that can be removed from the body for fire-starting purposes and allows the rods to be easily replaced when worn down.

Other tools aimed at helping users set up at camp include a rope cutter, rope tensioner and a tent peg puller, which all work with designated finger pulls at the top end of the tool for ease of use. Also onboard are imperial and metric rulers, a pry bar, can opener, flat screwdriver and a bottle opener for when the work is done.

Bottle opener. Check.

If you don't want to hurt your fingers then try pulling directly on the peg. Somebody is soon going to be selling a 6 inch nail calling it a multi tool. It can pry, it can be a handle, it can dig, it can open a can....

Another solution looking for a problem. As is typical of most multi-tools they are a jack-of-all-trades but masters of none.
