    I’ve been carrying Leathermans for decades and I’ll bet this works as well as any of them, but it depends on your needs.

    This has a bunch of tools I never use, no tools I actually use, and it’s a big honking bracelet. I would never buy it.

    It's a bracelet that shows you help supported Democrats,the owner of Leatherman is a Lib.

    And it's big and gay and a way to tell the world how much of a tool you are,while wearing a tool !

    Hard pass. For that price point you could get a an actually sturdy and fully useful multitool. The two things I find I use more than anything on such a tool are the pliers/wirecutter portion and the knife when I forget my knife. Don't really ever have a need for a multi screw set with little doodads that sits on my wrists and makes me look like a tool. I have carried a supertool 300 for years and while yes it weighs a few ounces more it's not on my wrists and has far more everyday functionality with half the price. With other very comparable tools in a similar price point or cheaper.

    Yes, but would it get a pass when flying?

    It looks pretty useless, but at least it's ugly and expensive.

    Maybe if you’re a long-distance cyclist needing all those bits to save you in a breakdown, or just want a gearhead piece of jewelry. Otherwise a Leatherman Wave is more functional for the money and less ostentatious.

    Perfect to wear to the mall with your 5.11 gear and Kevlar jock strap

    It's not a kevlar jock strap.

    It's a ballistic cup:

    When you need it, you'll be glad it's there.

    And, I only wear 5.11 pants when I train.

    Do you wear skinny jeans? Then that’s your bracelet.

    I'm old-school. The only "bracelet" a man should wear is a wristwatch. I prefer the Timex Ironman.

    Starlingear,where should I start...

    First off,do you support Mick Strider ?

    You have to support Mick if you wear Starlingear,and you must wear TAD Gear. You must join all the other toolbags on USN and do a pocket dump.

    Actually I'm the worst person to ask,I don't wear jewelry of any kind.
