Gerber Strata

Every season gives weekend warriors challenges with their gear. You may need to adjust your binding to tame the powder or just crack open a cool Corona after a day with the sun pounding your back on the trails. The key is to find a versatile and compact tool to assist through all seasons and activities.

In response to the needs of weekend warriors, Gerber has introduced the Strata. A multi-plier featuring 13 functions that boasts:

  • Needle Nose Pliers
  • Carbide Cutters
  • Scissors
  • File
  • Serrated & Fine Edge Blade
  • Bottle Opener
  • Can Opener
  • Flat-Head & Phillips-Head Screwdrivers
  • Saw
  • Scissors
  • Can & Bottle Opener

The Gerber Strata is compact when fully closed (L: 2.5"L, W: .75", D: .5") weighing a half-pound. It easily can be tucked into the breast pocket of your ski jacket or an external pocket in your pack.

The pinch cutters incorporated in the pliers can easily cut through smaller-sized rope or small branches for kindling off a dead tree. The Strata sports a solid design and each component locks out to make it easy and safe to use. Even with its compact design, the Gerber Strata is too cumbersome to make it an everyday companion to carry with you.
