A Leatherman multi-tool hanging off your belt is a great way to stay prepared for emergencies, but it means you look like someone with a Leatherman hanging off their belt—and that part’s not so great. This innocuous hair clip is a better alternative. It manages to replicate the functionality of quite a few tools, but will all but disappear when used to keep your bangs at bay.
It can serve as a flat-head screwdriver, even for fixing those tiny screws on your glasses. It’s got a 5/16 wrench for tackling the occasional bolt, and there’s a serrated edge for hacking through rope, but hopefully not hacking through your hair when worn. It could very well be the smallest multi-tool you can buy for just $10, trumped only by the Q-Tip when it comes to cost versus functionality.
Leatherman has announced a new ‘survivalist’ multi-tool yesterday at the U.S. Shot Show. It includes a ferrocerium fire starter and diamond-coated file, that are both removable, and a whistle, as well as a lot of the usual Leatherman features (knife, pliers with replaceable wire cutters, saw, hammer etc.)
The mixture of black, silver and a survival yellow make for as really good looking Multi-Tool that is truly designed for those woodland outings.
Mil-spec hook tape with elastic shock cord passing through stitched 1 inch Cordura webbing ,these can then be stuck onto any compatible female loop Velcro and then easily removed for active grab and go use .
A multitude of EDC items or medical kits can then be stashed behind the voluminous shock cord which can then be cinched down tight using the toaster cord locks keeping all the items where they are needed .
I can see loads of use for these in my kit set ups and am sure I will be playing around with these for some time to come as I think they are a great idea for stashing small lose kit items .
