Gear Patrol features the ComplEAT as Best New EDC Item

In a February 2019 article, the team at Gear Patrol featured the ComplEAT as one of the best new EDC items on the market.

From the article:

“Gerber’s new piece of trail cutlery, the ComplEAT, is more multi-tool than spork. In one 2.3-ounce package, the ComplEAT packs a fork, spoon, dual-edge — one serrated, one rubberized — spatula and a tiny tool that campers can use to open bottles, packages, and cans and peel vegetables. By all means, this should produce an overpacked tool that’s either unwieldy or one that can perform its multiple functions without excelling at them; a dud. Gerber sidestepped these traps by giving the ComplEAT a construction that’s more modular than fixed, as traditional multi-tools are. Each of the tool’s implements slides apart from one another at the end of the handle for independent usage. Combine the spatula with either the fork or spoon to create a pair of tongs.

The ComplEAT is 7.75 inches long. The spatula is made of heat-resistant nylon with a silicone overmold on one edge while the fork, spoon and tool are anodized aluminum. Even the most severe ounce-counting campers will have a hard time turning down all of the tool’s utility to save weight in a backpack. Especially when the alternative is a spork.”
