Leatherman Signal Survival Kit

Trauma, Survival, Repair: Leatherman Introduces Emergency Kits

Teaming up with Tonquin Trading, Leatherman launches three preparedness kits, each with a signature multitool.

Multitools earn their stripes as an implement to help you through an array of unexpected situations. But even a multitool can’t do it all on its own.

Leatherman recognized this, and this month partnered with emergency supply retailer Tonquin Trading to supplement its tried-and-true tools. Three limited-edition emergency preparedness kits aim to offer peace of mind with portable, stocked supplies — each with its own purpose-built Leatherman multitool.

Live now, the Trauma, Survival, and Repair kits each retail for $175. The kits come with an array of extras, like gauze, repair tape, a survival blanket, and more. And as the names suggest, each kit suits a different emergency scenario.

Leatherman Preparedness Kits: Trauma, Survival, Repair

For emergencies spanning life-threatening situations to basic first aid, the Trauma Kit contains tools to respond to various injuries. At the forefront of the kit is the six-function Leatherman Raptor. This scissor-based multi includes a strap cutter, a ring cutter, a 5cm ruler, an oxygen tank wrench, and a glass breaker.
