We initially set out to design an upgraded version of our original Adventure Mate multitool that we launched in Australia back in 2016.
With this next version we set out to create the most compelling camping multitool on the market.
In November 2019 we launched a Kickstarter campaign to do just this. The support we received was awesome, and with the help of hundreds of kickstarter backers we successfully hit our funding goal 30 days later, and had completely sold out of our first batch of production by Christmas 2020.
Our mission at Adventure Mate is to design products that inspire you to get outside and explore the natural world.
It was nonnegotiable to the team that each new tool we incorporated into the design, needed to perform as well or better than it's traditional single-use tool counterpart, and through an uncompromising approach to build quality, materials, and functionality, we have created a multitool that you can rely on no matter the situation.
We understand that great things are done by bringing many small things together, and at Adventure Mate we are constantly exploring how we can improve the design and functionality of our product.
That is why with every new production release we aim to ship a higher quality product from the last.
In late 2020 we made some improvements to the Axe head design..
In early 2021 after selling out two batches of our initial tool the team took a trip to Lake Tahoe to run the AM-V2 through further testing to gather new practical insights into the tool we had created. We began developing a next-gen shovel head with foot pegs for easier digging, a more aggressive scooping arc, and a naturally stiffer design.
To become a transformational force for global forest regeneration, while actively reducing the environmental impact of our own production.
For every Adventure Mate tool sold we plant 5 trees.
All AM-V2 production is offset through the purchase of carbon credits.
We use 100% recycled cardboard for all our packaging
