Top 5’s: Snowboard Tools

A snowboarding tool is one of the most important pieces of gear that you should always have with you when you’re out snowboarding. Unfortunately, many people don’t bring one with them.

Well if you snag one of these five tools, you might just be able to solve your problems.

The saying” good things come in small packages” is quite fitting for this tool. It’s tiny, and it has everything that you need. It has two Philips bits, a 10mm wrench, a flat head bit, and a goggle squeeze. And the best part is, you won’t even know it’s in your pocket, that is until you need to use.

This tool is small, it has a smooth ratchet, and it has every piece you could think of to fix your snowboard on the fly. Well except for wood, or P-text. That would be awesome if this tool had that. But then it wouldn’t be this tiny, and you wouldn’t want to carry it.

5. Volcom V-Co T Driver
