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.

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, 5cm ruler, an oxygen tank wrench, and a glass breaker.

My only complaint is that eventually, backflushing won’t be enough. These can clog up after some time and no amount of back flushing will fix its low flow. I went through 2 on the AT. However, it will attach to Smart Water Bottles and most bladders!

Built for backcountry reliability and portability, the Sawyer Squeeze filter is our pick for the best portable water purifier.

The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).
