Leatherman’s ‘Wearable’ Multitool For Your Wrist

You already know how useful multitools can be — if you have one with you.

The Leatherman Tread is a tool (actually 25 of them) that will always be on your wrist. The links of this bracelet are stainless steel implements like small box wrenches and screwdrivers.

It is designed to be customizable with slotted fasteners, so you 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 tools on the links include a cutting hook, hex drives, screwdrivers, box wrenches, and a carbide glass breaker.

We haven’t tested it yet, but love the idea of this gizmo. Put a paracord bracelet on one wrist, this on the other and a knife in your pocket and be ready for anything.

Included tools are:

Cutting Hook, Bottle Opener, Oxygen Tank Wrench, Carbide Glass Breaker, 1/4” Flat Screwdriver, 5/16” Screwdriver, 1/8” Flat Screwdriver, 10mm Box Wrench, 1/4” Box Wrench, 3/8” Box Wrench, 3/32” Screwdriver, 3/16” Screwdriver, #1-2 Phillips, #1 Phillips, 5/16” Box Wrench, 3/32” Hex Drive, 1/8” Hex Drive, 3/16” Box Wrench, 1/4” Hex Drive, 3/16” Hex Drive, 5mm Hex Drive, 6mm Hex Drive, #2 Square Drive, 1/4” Socket Drive, Pick/Sim Card Tool.

The Tread will hit retail floors in Summer 2015 and cost between $150 and $200. A version of the Tread bracelet that includes a watch — the Tread TM QM1 — will be available in fall 2015.
