Along with its various other activity-specific multi-tools, Leatherman currently offers models dedicated to the unique needs of skaters and surfers. Now, it's come out with a newly-updated tool designed just for snowboarders – the Hail + Style PS.
The stainless steel device was designed in a partnership between Leatherman and Signal Snowboards. It consists of two parts – the outer carabiner-like Hail multi-tool (which was previously released on its own), and the removable inner Style PS.
Tools on the Hail include a flat/Phillips screwdriver, scraper, lace assist, 10-mm wrench, earbud cord wrap, and (of course) a bottle opener. If you pop out the Style PS, you'll also gain access to needlenose and regular pliers, a wire cutter, scissors, another screwdriver, a nail file(!) and tweezers.
The Hail + Style PS weighs 3.17 oz (89.8 g), and is priced at US$47. If you're looking for something a little simpler and cheaper, take a look at the CL!CK Carabiner.
