Gear - Leatherman CX Multi-Tool


I picked up this multi-tool specifically as something to have with me while fishing.  I wanted my tool to have pliers and a knife but didn't want or need much else.  I shopped around for a tool that satisfied my needs but also had a low overall weight.

This bad boy satisfied all of those requirements for a reasonable price and looks pretty good while doing it!

Here is the description from Leatherman:

"The sleek new Leatherman Skeletool CX gets you back to basics... very cool basics. The Skeletool CX has only the most necessary of multi-tool features, because sometimes that's all you need. With a 154CM stainless steel blade, pliers, bit driver, pocket clip and carabiner/bottle opener, you're set. Lightweight, low volume, perfect size. The Skeletool CX: Who says more is better?"

Over and over I've been surprised how useful this tool has been for me.  Sure enough, the

pliers and knife have been the most useful, as expected.  But I have used the screwdrivers and the bottle opener at least one or twice each week.

I've actually moved this tool from my daypack to my pocket for day-to-day use.  It's actually been really handy because I'm now taking it with me even when I leave the daypack behind so I have more opportunities to use it.

This is definitely an item that I would buy again.  here is an Amazon Affiliate link in case you want to support the site:
