AltitudeSicknessMy Favorite Leatherman

Voted 5/5

I have owned Leathermans for many years, this is my favorite one so far. My primary reasons for this is because of the ease on the hands when using the pliers and also the saftey features and the locking blade feature is the easiest to use of all those I have used.

I own a Wave since 1998, very durable, strong and sharp. its a little bit heavy, but that might be the reason for the durability.

PeterBaylissWell worth having

Voted 5/5

I have had one since 2004 and found it great. The tools on it actually work unlike cheap imitations and have found it very useful.
It's a bit heavy but it is excellent to have at camp for fixing things.

Voted 5/5

For general camping I always carry my Leathermans, although as stated above it is heavy and so does not accompany me on alpine trips. Never let me down and an excellent example of a do all piece of kit.

I've had the Wave for about 10 years now. I recently lost it on Elkhorn Mountain. It served me well and will be dearly missed.
