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.
In my experience there are few tools on the market that can beat the Leatherman brand. I have used SOG, Gerber and owned a few cheaper variants however my Leatherman tools are the ones that have always came out on top!
I’m convinced that whilst over in Afghanistan and on duty here in the UK it was my Leatherman Charge Ti that made life just that bit easier.
So now being part of SAR it makes sense to have that same reliability.
The Raptor medical shears are a true tool that when “time is life” why trust it to a cheaper variant.
These are super sharp will cut motorcycle leathers and tuff denim! Not many shears on the market could do that, Iv even had other brands bend or break during use not good.
These also feature -
A rescue hook
Oxygen cylinder key
The sheath is great it will fit normal belts and MOLLE webbing. It can take the shears either closed or in the open position.
If you are in a profession where you need a tool like this, I could not recommend them high enough! Perfect for SAR, military, police, EMT and fire fighters.
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.
I love it when I see a pouch utilised to the very max. This submission from Wouter nicely shows off the capability of the Triple Aught Design OP1. PLUS, check out our Instagram where we’re giving one of these away!!!
