Default Latest from Leatherman

Check it out and see if it's useful or useless. I've read reviews both ways.

As a watchband it might be handy for a cyclist for minor repairs, but I'd prefer not to wear a dedicated bracelet around that has tool heads integrated into it for most any other activity that I can think of.

If at the gun range I just throw small tool in the bag, not wear it on my wrist. Backpacking or hiking I'd just throw a regular leatherman in the bag on my back.

I have several Leathermen and I regard them as tools of last resort. They do almost everything poorly but if it's all you have got .....

Instead of a Leatherman I prefer to carry a small pouch with the essentials but then again, I carry a toolbox in every vehicle too.

This latest adaption, I would not have at any cost. They've just about run out of variations on their theme.

That's going to hurt wether you put it on your wrist/neck on in your pocket.
And for what ? Nothing that an adjustable wrench and a screwdriver couldn't do.

At the price points of the bracelet & watch, I won't be buying one any time soon. I already own three Leatherman tools (two full size for the belt and one mini for the pocket), and each was a gift from someone who had no clue what to buy for me, but felt obligated to buy me SOMETHING. I couldn't tell you where any of them are right now, but I know they are here somewhere.

A 16oz hammer, 4-way screwdriver and an 8" Crescent wrench can handle a lot of quick fixes.

Ditto.

One is laying on the table beside the computer I'm using right now.

The mini is attached to my house key ring.

I think that the others are in various vehicles. I know that I have one in the big tractor. I don't really need them in the vehicles as I carry a tool box in every one but I had to put them somewhere.

I think that I bought one of them. The rest I got for Christmas and birthday presents.
