Pyyros takes a modular approach to survival multi-tools

bright flashlight and quality multi-tool is a key part of any camping kit, and Tennessee-based Pyyros has taken a modular approach to its eponymous device. This unit allows you to add a variety of features to your lightweight aluminum body, depending on your expedition.

Pyrros starts with a base model that packs a lightweight T-6061 aluminum body with a 1,000 lumen flashlight, 3,400 mAh lithium-ion battery, USB charger, and stainless steel hammer cap. Additional modules can be screwed into this base using the blank modules included in the base model.

Upgrading to a Buckwoods model adds a compact electric arc igniter and driver set. The Survival model, on the other hand, again contains two water purification capsules at the top. But true adventurers may want an expedition model that includes all of the above plus a Personal Beacon Locator (PBL).

However, the Beacon can be purchased as an additional option on any model for $299. Also, wind and hydro turbines to charge Pylos’ batteries add $35 to the price.

Pyyros said the optional beacon is the second smallest in the world after the attached locator. Breitling Emergency II. Compliant with the COSPAS-SARSAT standard, the dual-band PBL operates at frequencies of 121.5 MHz and 406 MHz and works anywhere in the world. Operates for up to 24 hours and operates in temperatures from -20 to +55° C (-4 to 131° F).

Pyrrhus is now the subject of the following problems: kickstarter campaign We have raised over $15,200 of our $50,000 goal with 20 days left. Pledge $39 to get the base model, but you’ll need to pledge at least $349 to buy the aluminum unit with the beacon. A special edition titanium model is also available starting at $349, and one of his with lots (excluding the wind/water turbine) sells for $689.

If the Kickstarter campaign reaches its goal, Pyyros plans to launch the tool in December of this year. Check out the company’s video pitch below.
