A midsection of a man wielding a hatchet in the outdoors

No man should head into the backcountry empty-handed, and one of the first and most trusted tools that every outdoorsman adds to their pack is a quality camping axe (or hatchet). Along with high-quality survival knives and reliable multitools, a compact hatchet is a gamechanger when you reach camp. These OG multipurpose tools come in handy for any number of jobs, like felling small trees, clearing branches, butchering game, and splitting wood.

Unlike their counterpart, the full-sized axe, the best hatchet can be carried easily into the backcountry, or stowed in a bug out bag ready to be relied on in a survival situation (or in a The Last of Us-style zombie apocalypse). One hatchet isn't necessarily like all the others though. Different handle lengths, hefts, and heads all combine to give you a raft of unique tools, so we put together this list of our favorite camping axes to help you pack for your next adventure.

I’d heard that Sedona mountain biking is incredible, but it is something you must experience for yourself.

Forgive me if this sounds a bit cliche, but Sedona is truly like stepping into a postcard. The city sits in a valley surrounded by towering red rock cliffs, with multiple trail systems reaching out from the city into these hills and cliffs. And they are not for the faint of heart.
