A world-renowned solo long-distance hiker, Andrew Skurka has trekked the equivalent of 1.2 times around the Earth. It’s no coincidence that a VICTORINOX SWISS ARMY multi-tool is featured on the cover of Skurka’s newest book—The Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide: Tools and Techniques to Hit the Trail. A supreme long distance hiker dedicated to traveling further, faster and lighter, Andrew is deadly serious about the gear he relies on when heading out into the backcountry. The unmatched versatility and superior quality of Andrew’s Victorinox Swiss Army tool is a huge asset when every ounce counts.
