That notch in the hatchet head is for pulling nails. You can rig it for other things.

I use one of my luggage straps set to reach from the stake to my shoulder with my knees slightly bent. Loop up and straiten knees. Kinda like putting a bike on centerstand. Plenty of power.

Can't think of the last time I pounded one in tho'. Could be the stakes I use (Y stakes in the summer time). You just step on them.

I also have sand stakes and snow stakes but they don't travel on the bike.

I carry an 8 oz ball peen hammer rolled up in the tent with the poles and stakes. It's light enough that I don't care that it is there, heavy enough to pound stakes, and the ball end fits in the cord loops tied to each stake making it easier to pull them out of the ground.

I think I got the idea from an inmate many years ago.

And you have a tool that is designed to work on the bike as well.

Ok Guys, I've been lurking this thread from around the time of its inception and have gone thru 3 fully functional tool kits/systems refining and fine tuning. My Hip pack has worn out to the point of almost scattering all my tools so I broke down and bought Klim's Scramble Pak here. Thought it would be a good opportunity to take some pics and share what I've come up with.

The Hip Belt comes with me almost always. The Backpack too. The fender bag I leave home when I'm feelin lucky or if I stuff a 21" tube in my backpack. When I'm racing crosscountry 1.5 hour races I pare down the backpack to pretty much water only and cross my fingers. Long Baja trips see all the gear plus camping and food in my Giant Loop. Warm Clothes get Stowed accordingly to the ride.

Almost everything I have has been used when out on the trail either on my bikes or my buddys'. It's a little heavy, but I also use this pack to pit crew at Baja 1000 races and it goes in my truck to help out anyone I see along the road. The 1/4" sockets and ratchet get used the most and are sometimes a little too small. The pliers get used so much I don't want to scale them down. The chain tool is too heavy, but i'm glad I have it when I need it!








Tool Hip Belt:
1.) Asahi Lightool double ended wrenches 8/10, 11/13, 12/14, 17/19
2.) Motion Pro Tire/Axle wrenches 22mm, 24mm, 27mm
3.) 1/4" drive craftsman ratchet with extension
4.) 3.8" socket 17mm, 1/4" sockets 6,8,10,11,12,13,14 plus 1/4f-3/8m adaptor, and 1/4" square-1/4" hex adapter
5.) 1/4" square drive Allens 3,4,5,6,7,8
6.) Keiba Needle nose Pliers (Japan)
7.) KTC pj-200 (japan) Slip Joint Pliers
8.) Husky Multi ScrewDriver
9.) Spark plug wrench
10.) Motion Pro Chain breaker and length of chain and masterlink
11.) Patch Kits
12.) Electrical Tape
13.) Misc carb bolts and jets
14.) Feeler Guages
15.) Valve stem remover (small metal cylinder below locktight)
16.) Red Locktight
17.) Bailing wire
18.) Allen wrenches (90 degree) and allen wrenches (1/4" hex shank) both of these are mainly backups to the sockets
19.) Bag of misc metric nuts and bolts plus electrical connectors
20.) KTM Clutch and front brake lever











Backpack:

1.) Camelbak Mule
2.) 3 liter Hydration Bladder
3.) Corona folding saw (best folder I've found)
4.) 1 liter MSR bottle for extra fuel
5.) Nylon rope (towing, etc)
6.) Hand pump for tires
7.) Cold weather gloves
8.) Athletic Tape
9.) Headlamp (waterproof) with extra batteries
10.) Rain/wind jacket (old snowboarding)
11.) Extra goggle lenses (tinted and clear)
12.) Bike registration and insurance
13.) I-bprofin



Fender Bag:

1.) MSR Fenderpak
2.) Spare Tubes (18/19/21" and/or depending on bike and trip)

Gearwrench Micro Driver

Found this on Amazon, $14.18. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0062FSAVI/...410_item_image
This little wrench is practically indestructible and compact. It has been shown before in this thread as the Husky 16 piece reversible microdriver set $16.97. The Gearwrench comes with more sockets and bits and is cheaper.
I have been using one for a year now and it can take a lot of abuse. I just ordered a second one for my work toolbox.

Just remember to replace the hex bits, They come with SAE bits.

That's also the same kit as the "Cobalt" branded stuff at Lowes. I paid about that for mine on sale. The wrench works well!
