Such a great tool! The knives are sharp and the pliers are strong. I love the spring-loaded pliers. I been using a Gerber Mini-Suspension for a while now and just felt it was time for an upgrade. After looking at MANY multi-tools, from MANY brands, I kept coming back to Gerber. Being happy with my mini-suspension, I knew Gerber wouldn't dissapoint. I'm very happy with my purchase. The one thing I will likely have to do is upgrade the pouch. It's already showing some stretching in the belt loop and some of the stitching has come undone on the edge. I didn't ding the rating, because I care more about the tool. The pouch is serviceable, but not fantastic.
Best Multi-tool I have ever owned. I bought several to give away as gifts. The pliers are great. The locking mechanism is good. Easy to find the tool you need. If I have a complaint, it's that it's quite heavy and tends to pull my pants down on one side. But it's heavy due to the quality construction, so I can't really call that a fault. The belt case has an elastic strap on the back that you slide your belt into. It's a bit small. If you have a really wide belt, you may have issues pulling it through the elastic strap.
