Somehow they don't mention the weight of the product (or did I missed it). I think that most of the supplies inside are semi useless. As a vivid outdoor man you probably own all of them and of better quality. But the final judgment should be made after one treks with that staff for 10-15 miles. If you arm feels like you were power lifting weights all day than this is no a good product.<br><br>Matt

I'm in the market for another staff and saw that one on ebay. My first thoughts were, throw the knife away and get a real SAK. <br><br>I'm against carrying all of my eggs in one basket, so I'd probably continue to wear my current vest in case I lost the all in one survival staff. Besides, I prefer a wooden staff and will probably go with the CS quarterstaff or the 6' ratan staff they sell.

I have the Crawford Staff. It is a high quality unit that can be configured in 3 lengths, and has lots of options. IMHO it is vastly superior to the staff referenced by parmedicpete on ebay. <br><br>While I like this staff very much, I find I almost never carry it. I much prefer my Palm staff or other wood staffs for their "warmth" and overall easy carry (no hidden features, just light weight support with superior pace maintaining swingability).

A few years ago, I tried making a "survival staff" using some bits of aluminum tubing I had lying around, and I never got a unit that worked well enough as a staff to warrant carrying it on any kind of a trip. All the stuff in the handle screwed up the weight and the balance. <br><br> Light weight and "swingability" are critical to a decent staff, and while a staff is not an essential survival tool, it is indeed a very useful item to have in the outdoors. One of my very best was a replacement tool handle, all of $2.
