I have several Leatherman Wave and I love them but will never pocket carry those rather belt carry in the holster. I carry a Swiss Army knife (Commander) and a Kershaw Leek in my pockets instead.

I have an original Leatherman. Its hinge is loose. I kept pinching my fingers with it. They have a lifetime warranty but I havenít sent it back.

I have a VERY nice Gerber version. The Gerberís plierís jaws are spring loaded pliers and pop open by themselves when you release pressure on its handles. Itís a lot nicer to tighten or loosen a nut, or cut or strip a wire with it. All the other tools are first rate and lock. The rear of the blade is serrated. And it is SO nice not be pinching my fingers with it.

I keep it in the glove compartment. Sometimes I carry it my bag. It is too heavy and too big for a purse. It does come with a belt sheath. Women's pants don't have big pockets, if they have them at all. You could carry it work pants, I wouldn't think in suit pants, but that's true of the Leatherman too.

Story time:
Once upon a time, a young lance corporal of Marines was unloading a truck full of "stuff" that was to be delivered to the company cp. This young feller came across several large shipping boxes of Leatherman Waves. When this young LCpl asked the company XO, "Sir, are these for us?" the XO replied with an evil sneer, "Hell no, devil nuts, they're good will gifts for some of the locals, so we can win the hearts and minds you freaking tard".

The young Lance Corporal leading this B.S. working party was very disheartened and upset. He had been in this crap hold country for 8 months already and was sick and tired of getting shot at, having crap explode around him at random, and having to put up with the total idiocy of his chain of command.

So the young Marine had a bright idea. While no one was looking he just grabbed one of the boxes, walked into his squad leader's berthing area bold as brass, and dropped them on the Sergeant's cot. He then ripped open the box, grabbed one to put in his pocket, and said loud and clear, "I just jacked these from the CP, enjoy!!" And all the Marines in the platoon mysteriously reported that their families had all coincidentally sent them the same model multi tool at the same time.

A few long months later, this same industrious Marine was out on patrol, and somehow managed to trip on something. While laying on his side after busting his lip on his SAW, he looks to see what is wrapped around his feet. It was a nest of wires leading to a pair of 155MM rounds buried in a shallow depression. So he snatched out his Leatherman and began cutting all wires as fast as possible, after all, he thought, sometimes the unknown is better than the known.

Yeah, I'd give my left one to have it back.
I have one on my flack from when I was a boot saw gunner. Still there never know when you will need it!

Yeah, I ended up buying a Skeletool. It's a little smaller than my Buck knife that it replaced, but it's a damn handy little tool.

I might buy me a Wave or Surge to go in the truck once I start surveying this summer.

I've been carrying the original leatherman whenever I go afield, on the water or at the range. Have had mine for many years, in fact, I'm on my second leather case for the original tool. I don't know much about the newer models but the first ones out are still tops in my humble opinion.

Leatherman MUT. 29 tools of absolute unnecessary bad a$$-ness at the ready whenever you need. More or less for AR shooters, but it does EVERYTHING!!! twice!

They're great for pocket carry. Just don't take one to an airport. I saw a show the other night about what the TSA confiscates, and the Leatherman is the number one item from men. One airport the show visited had several cases of Leatherman multi-tools sitting there. Hundreds and hundreds. I'd love to know what they do with them.

I have the Wave and I really like it however its heavy for pocket carry and really needs to be on a belt , There is really everything you would ever need in it and the cutters are super sharp and dont have a hard time cutting much of anything , Good thing is if you wear it out send it in they will fix it free. I dont carry mine every day but I do carry it alot , regardless there is always a knife in my pocket wether its on my belt or not .
