Tool Spotlight: Sidekick®

As a way to make it easier to pick that perfect Leatherman tool for you (so many options!), we’re introducing a new Tool Spotlight series. And we’re going to start off with a winner.


This month’s featured tool is the handy, pocket-sized Leatherman Sidekick®. A great choice for people new to multi-tools and first-time users, the Sidekick® does just as its name implies. It’s by your side when you need it. This is why we recommend it for carrying with you everywhere (insider lingo is everyday carry or EDC) whether it’s an outdoor adventure, at home or on-the-go.

TOP 5 TOOL HIGHLIGHTS: LEATHERMAN SIDEKICK® MULTI-TOOL

 



1. OUTSIDE-ACCESSIBLE FEATURES

No need to even open up the tool all the way. Just use the nail notch to access the blade while the tool is folded or closed. Works just like a pocketknife. Think: fast and easy when you need to make a quick cut or prep a campfire meal.



2. SPRING-ACTION PLIERS

The Sidekick® is one of a few multi-tools with spring-action pliers. This means that it’s much easier to use with one hand, so you can work faster and keep your hand from getting sore.



3. EASY TO CARRY

The Sidekick® has a hole to make it easy to attach to a lanyard. This comes in particularly handy if you’re often on or near the water, so you won’t lose it if it’s dropped. A built-in replaceable pocket clip makes it simple to carry your Sidekick® on your pocket or belt loop. Remove the clip, and carry it in a sheath (we have several to choose from).



4. LOCKS INTO PLACE

The combo knife locks into place, and you need to manually fold it away (meaning it won’t fold up on you while you’re using it), to make it much safer to use. 



5. USEFUL EXTRAS

Because we’re Leatherman, we don’t have EDC tools that do only one thing. The Sidekick® includes wire cutters and wire strippers, a built-in ruler and three kinds of drivers. But maybe our favorite features of the Sidekick®? The can and bottle openers. Pop the top of a beverage while you’re out and about, or crack a can of food when you’re away from home.

YOUR NEW GO-TO EDC GEAR


Once you have the Sidekick®, you may wonder how you ever did anything without it. Just like any good Sidekick®. Don’t blame us when everyone you know wants to borrow it, or you’re the new person in charge of fixing things. Saving the day is about to be your new job description. Fair warning.
