What's the Best Hatchet for Mountain Biking trail work?

I'm looking for a Hatchet I can carry in my backpack to chop downed trees and logs. I might also use the hatchet for camping or hiking to make kindling for fires. Any suggestions, on a good small hatchet that doesn't weigh too much I can bring with me mountain biking?

I just picked up the Fiskars X7 Hatchet (14 Inch) to use for chopping downed logs, while out mountain biking.  It lightweight, durable and comes with a solid protective sheath. So the hatchet can be carried in a backpack while you're mountain biking.

Fiskars owns Gerber, and the Fiskars hatchet is about $20 less than the Gerber 14-Inch Hatchet
