Multi-tool for the truck
I'd like a "just in case" multi-tool for the glove box, bug out bag, or hiking/biking pack. Specs:

  • All price points under $150 can be considered.
  • This probably won't be carried in my pocket very often, so size isn't a huge concern.
  • Elaborate blades aren't a must (always have an Endura or Delica in my pocket).

What say you? Anything I should be looking into besides Leatherman? And if Leatherman, any specific models that offer greater value/quality?

I have a Gerber in my glove box. Itís pliers are spring loaded so they open back up by themselves when you release your grip. It makes it easier to use and doesnít pinch my fingers like my (original) Leatherman.

I loved my leatherman wave until it got stolen. I now have a cheapo wichester that came in a 3 piece set for around $25. It works fine.

I just have a fold open tool set behind the seat, has your basic tool set for working on a car also just a few things that you normally find in tool boxs and it came with a gerber hatchet for some reason.

I have had this tool strapped to my belt since I got it probably 8 years ago. What I really like about it is that you can access the knife and other tools while the pliers are closed. The only thing I don't like about it is the knife.

I got a SOG multitool for Xmas its the Paratrooper model and it works good for what I do but you have to partially open it to access the blades and that gets old. I like the leathermans that can access the blades without unfolding the tool. I'm not a fan of Gerber some I have used had pliers with very fat tips that didn't get into areas as well as the other brands. The SOGs other than my model have a higher leverage grip on the pliers, that is probably what I will get if I ever replace mine.
