    This is certainly VERY nice !

    Only carry about *half* of those Bits, however.

    When i need it, my Leatherman Charge works Really Sweet !
    The Charge is even better than the Wave when you add the bits and definitely the extension as well.

    I had no interest in the bits when I first got my Charge, but having torx and allen bits on me at all times
    has proven so beneficial that I think everyone should make sure to give strong consideration to this
    ultimate package.

    When biking, I carry my Leatherman Crunch along with my dedicated bike toolkit. My Juice S2 lives in my hiking pack/survival/BOB.
    What? Me? Derail a thread?

    Gerber 600 series (?) multitool. One of the first police special ones. I found it on the roof of a house all covered with moss. I soaked it with areokroil overnight and it was pretty much like new. Terrible fit and finish but durable and nice to use. One handed deployment of the pliers. I remember thinking when I was EDCing it that if could deploy the pliers and take on an attacker just with those. It literally rattles in a sheath. Pftw! I replaced the "remgrit" blade with a tungsten carbide jigsaw blade.

    I wonder if the pliers will ever break if I actually had to start using it all the time. If I remember correctly, they just sort of float inside the handle, lots of play, but possibly nothing really to make the pliers unusable? I hope we never have to find out? Anybody know about the long-term usability of these things?

    Leather man wave with bit kit and extender. It's a small package with lots of goodies.

    My EDC is a Leatherman Wingman. Great for pocket carry w/ the built in clip.

    My BOB has a Leatherman Wave. Little more substantial with a few other minor features. Need to get a bit kit...

    If I HAD a BOB, I can't decide if my Leatherman Charge TTi would feature. I really like it as a bit of kit, although I am on number 3 in 5 years (pliers broke and I got a mysterious chip in the blade on the first one, then the big screwdriver sheared off on the hinge on the second) which makes me question durability, especially for such a high price tag. It's also fairly heavy. Had a very small amount of rust on the Charge after I spent 6 months in the jungle with it.

    The Leatherman Squirt PS4 on my keys gets almost daily use, if I was making a 'compact BOB' then I'd probably put one in.

    My BOB Multi-tool is a Leatherman Core and the Bitdriver extension set as well. Does pretty much all I need and the core is heavy enough to take most of what I throw at it...

    Leatherman Wingman. For about $22, I don't mind if it doesn't get used much (and it doesn't). Nice for a pack or BOB, too heavy for EDC. For EDC I use my Squirt PS4.
    GOOD TINT!

    Leatherman Wingman, inexpensive and still USA made. I prefer my Victorinox for EDC.

    I have a Leatherman in the big bob, and a Gerber in the small.

    ...... No idea the models
    They are by far the best multi tools I've owned with my favorite being the Leatherman.
    The slide up pliers aren't my preference.

    Edit: Leatherman supertool 300
    Gerber =? Still don't know lol.

    The Gerber is very like My BOB tool - a Paul Chen Multitasker, it certainly shares the same slide to deploy feature only mine deploys a pair of shears not a pair of pliers, choice is a good thing. Same Chinese manufacturer probably. Great value at £9.95 Still available.

    Must admit, bit surprised at the number of higher-quality multi-tools some of you guys have just sitting in a BOB.
