Rated 5 out of 5 by TwiceRetired Handy Tool All Around
I ordered this item as a gift for a grandson who is learning to service and repair his own vehicle. He likes having something handy when his toolbox might not be. This has been a very welcome gift and I will probably give another to a second grandson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daviso Awesome Christmas gift for my Daughter
Purchased this for my daughter. She works on a farm stand out of state and she needed several tools to do various things. She wanted a knife, both a common and Phillips head screwdriver and a pair of pliers. This multi tool fit the bill perfectly with the added bonus of a tool that opens packages. She is closing up the stand after a busy Christmas season and she said she has used this tool multiple times and has found it to be very useful.

Leatherman sidekick tool is as advertised. Spent the extra $8 on the engraving. The engraving was a waste of money. You need a magnifying glass to read the name that was engraved.

Rated 3 out of 5 by seaheather27 Tool is great but Sheath doesn't fit
Love the tool, but the flimsy, thin sheath doesn't fit and does not slide on belt as promised. Sheath has two metal grommets. It comes with a carabiner that is very thin and the spring part doesn't operate properly. Not worth paying extra for this as you can't even get the tool into the sheath. Better to buy the tool by itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NittanyMtBiker Leatherman Sidekick
Purchased for my Son (12 yrs old) for Christmas. He loves it. Just starting to get into hunting. Loves the idea of the compact tool.
I like the locking blades. Made a great gift. He takes it everywhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mr6666 good...however
Great unit for the price. Lots of good tools. They do need to "loosen up" a little with use. Sheath/pouch or whatever you wish to call it is mostly useless. Does not provide the sort of easy access you would like on a project

Rated 4 out of 5 by Camperhuntersmom Don't waste your money on engraving
The leatherman sidekick is a good tool, I bought one for both of my sons. You have to turn it from side to side to see the engraving. They said good thing the engraving was free, it's not monagraming is. Engraving was a complete waste of $16.

The Sidekick multi tool is a great gift. Don't bother paying for the L.L.Bean personalized engraving. It is too small and not legible on the stainless handle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by circleswimmer Fantastic Replacement
I lost another 'multi-tool' I carried all the time. I needed to replace that because I discovered I used it a lot more than I thought for everyday small jobs. I ordered this tool and it has been fantastic! I do wish it had a heavy leather case with a velcro or snap flap to carry it in but I use the belt clip and that works just fine. I would recommend this to anyone who needs an everyday 'carry-all' tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FarmNana1 Nice tool. I'm satisfied.
I like this a lot more than the old standard Leatherman from a decade ago. The spring loaded plier handle makes using them a lot easier. I really like how the knife and saw (both locking) are external so you don't need to open up the tool and have the pliers out to use the knife.
I didn't like the belt clip idea at first ( the case is useless), but as soon as I started using the tool it was much handier and I much prefer this to the old leather case.
