From needle nose pliers and Allen wrenches to cutting blades and Phillip’s head screwdrivers, multi-tools have it all, even making them great spy gadgets for the more fanciful among us and an excellent addition to your spy gear arsenal (or perhaps more likely just for your tool shelf in the garage).
If you’re ready for some covert ops or to check some items off of your to-do list, we’ll help you find the best multi-tools on the market today. As a starter we’re pretty impressed with Leatherman Wingman Multi Tool.
11. Pocket Knifes
Every Navy Seal hero, Boy Scout, Shark, Jet, and man’s man has one thing in common: pocket knifes! That’s right, they all carry pocket knifes and so should you.

Power tools may not be as immediately fun as car gadgets or spy equipment (depending on what you do with them of course), but you’ll start grunting like Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor as soon as you shred through timber like butter with your circular saw, feel the power of a nail gun, or use a hammer drill to effortlessly rip up floor tiles.

Typically, mens accessories and high tech gadgets don’t go hand in hand, but today’s smart watches have totally flipped the script by allowing us guys to wear powerful mini computers around our wrists.

Ever since the inception of James Bond in the 1960s, spy gadgets have become increasingly popular, and many have made their way to the commercial market.
From ball point pens that can scan documents to power strips and air fresheners that double as video cameras, spy gadgets have never been so cool!

18. Survival Knifes
Although these cool gadgets could be classified as survival tools, survival knifes are so cool that they deserve to be mentioned all by themselves.
The truth is, if you’re lost in the jungle or injured up on a mountain, the only thing you should have in your hand and ready to use is a survival knife. Sure, they look like the coolest gadgets ever made and will instantly make you feel like John Rambo, but survival knives are in fact on a practical basis the perfect tools for skinning animals, cutting down branches, and protecting yourself in the wild.
If your life is on the line, it’s important to have the best survival knife possible. So, pick out one of these cool gadgets to buy and pack it away with your survival or spy gear today, because it may just be the difference between life and death. Around here we’re currently pretty impressed by the Bear Grylls Survival Series Ultimate Knife.
19. Survival Tools
Doomsday preppers aren’t the only ones to appreciate the need for survival tools. While most gadgets for men focus on high-tech capabilities, survival tools have been used by men for thousands of years, making them not only the coolest gadgets for men, but also the most popular.
You don’t have to be a mountaineer, extreme skier, or hiker who’s lost the trail in order to use these cool gadgets for men. In fact, there are endless situations that may arise and place you in a survival scenario. For instance, your car may die on you and leave you stranded on a desolate stretch of road in the middle of winter or you may become separated from your tour group while exploring Mayan ruins in the middle of the Mexican jungle….come on, anything’s possible.
Thankfully, there are all kinds of survival tools, such as machetes, hatchets, fire starters, thermal blankets, and so on, allowing you to stay as safe and comfortable as possible if such a situation were to occur.
Since we never know what will happen and it’s best to stay prepared for anything at all times, no man should be without survival tools. Whether you’re looking for yourself or gathering mens gift ideas, there are plenty of cool survival tools out there and we’re here to help you find them. For me the Bear Grylls Ultimate Survival Pack with Multitool, Flashlight, and Fire Starter is currently top of my list.
20. Touchscreen Gloves
Okay, so it’s the middle of winter and you need to use your iPhone, iPad, or another touchscreen device to look at a map, find a good restaurant, or gasp, actually call someone. So, you takeout your touchscreen and swipe or tap it to death but nothing happens. The cold is bone-chilling, but the only way to make it work is to take off your gloves and risk frostbite, right?
While this may have been the case a couple of years ago, the recent advent of touchscreen gloves has completely solved this chilly dilemma that residents up north know far too well.
Although touchscreens themselves are cool tech gadgets, most of them only function by contacting something that conducts electricity, like your finger, which means repeated taps or swipes with a gloved hand simply doesn’t work. With touchscreen gloves, however, you can comfortably operate any touchscreen device while keeping your hands warm and toasty…and maintaining that composed and in control look you’re going for, even when its freezing!
Since most of us who aren’t living under rocks now use smart phones and tablets with touchscreens in our daily lives, touchscreen gloves are one of the most important gadgets to buy. Whether you’re looking for office gadgets, high tech gadgets, future gadgets, or simply cool gadgets to buy, touchscreen gloves should definitely be on your must-have list. When it comes to these stylish and practical little tykes we’re pretty impressed with the Pratt and Hart Men’s Wool Lined Touchscreen Leather Gloves.
Bottom Line – Gadgets are cool and you need them! LOTS of them!
From RC helicopters and smart watches to survival knifes and everything in between, there’s a veritable buffet of cool gadgets out there to choose from for us guys. Regardless of whether you’re into spy gear, the great outdoors, speed, or anything else, there are definitely gadgets out there with your name on them!
