Synonymous with their original PST, Oregon-based Leatherman now makes a host of various tools, knives, and wearables. Just as it was when founder Tim Leatherman started selling his multi-tool in 1983, all of their products are made in America and tested in the rugged Pacific Northwest.
The original Leatherman was built around the need for a multi-tool with pliers. The Crunch builds on the idea by making them locking pliers. Able to better handle high-torque jobs, they also double as a vice. They're joined in the pocketable tool by small, medium, large, and Phillips screwdrivers, a wood and metal file, a serrated knife, a ruler, wire cutters, a wire stripper, a bottle opener, and a 1/4" hex bit driver, hidden underneath the adjusting screw. Arrives with a sturdy leather box sheath with snap closure.

Most all-in-one tools are handy around the house, but not so much when you're out in the wild. The Leatherman Signal Multi-Tool excels in both scenarios. It has a cadre of survival-focused tools — including a 2.7" combination knife, saw, awl, safety whistle, a diamond-coated sharpener, and fire-starting Ferro rod — that can help you out on the trail should the need arise. Meanwhile, it has needlenose and regular pliers, wire cutters and stripper, a flat end for hammering, can and bottle openers, 1/4" and 3/16" box wrenches, and 1/4" hex and regular bit drivers for more common uses, finished off with a carabiner for clipping onto a belt or bag.

Leatherman continues to upgrade one of the most trustworthy multi-tools in the world. The Wave Plus features 18 different tools, most of which are utilitarian classics, but adds replaceable, durable wire cutters to the collection. Additionally, the tool features needlenose pliers, regular pliers, an electrical crimper, wire stripper, a regular and a serrated knife, a saw, and spring-action scissors. A small and large bit driver is also included, along with an 8-inch ruler, bottle and can openers, diamond-coated and wood/metal files, and a small and large bit driver. Every feature can be opened with one hand and quite a few of the tools are outside-accessible so you can use them when the multi-tool is folded and closed. The Wave Plus is available in all black with a black nylon Molle carrying sheath so it's ready at a moment's notice.

Sized for a keychain and so light you'll forget it's there, Leatherman's Micra Multi-Tool leaves you no excuse for being unprepared. It packs an impressive number of capabilities into its compact, folding body, including scissors, a knife, flat and Phillips screwdrivers, a ruler, tweezers, a nail cleaner, file, and bottle opener.
