Shot Show 2015: Leatherman Tread

Leatherman has debuted one of the coolest pieces of kit I’ve seen in a while in the multitool category.  The Leatherman Tread is a bracelet made from detachable corrosion resistant links, made from 17-4 Stainless Steel, that contain 2-3 tools per link for a total of 25 useable features.

The bracelet is designed to be fully customizable with slotted fasteners, so the user can rearrange links, add new ones, or adjust for wrist size to ¼”. Even the clasp is functional with a bottle opener and #2 square drive. Other link tools include a cutting hook, hex drives, screwdrivers, box wrenches, and a carbide glass breaker.  There are also plans for a model that includes a swiss made watch. 

For information including some background on the tool’s development and more images, click here.  Below is a video that provides a demonstration of the tool in action.

 

 

 

The Leatherman Tread will be released in May.  The watch version will drop in September.  MSRP for the bracelet is expected to be in the $150-200 range depending on whether you select the Stainless or Black DLC finish.

    Trinket!

    That is pretty cool! In the video it looked pretty chunky/armor-esque, but I think the watch version would make it more wearable in a business environment.

      My only issue with the watch version is that I think the watch would get in the way of using the tools. I’d imagine it would get pretty dinged/scratched up.

    Trinket was my initial thought. After watching the vid, it seems more like an industrial styled piece of jewelry with some in a pinch tool capabilities. I like the look (especially the DLC) and gadget factor, but too pricey for me. I probably couldn’t carry many link with my wimpy wrists.
