Whether you're a professional heli-skier or a geek stuck down in the IT department, you should always have a good multi-tool in your pocket. But if the thought of said tool weighing down your pants all day doesn't appeal, maybe it's time to get yourself something a little less bulky. The Leatherman Skeletool (Nov. 2007) is an ultra-light pocket-survival-tool that includes just the essentials — a super sharp knife, full-size pliers with wire cutters, an interchangeable screwdriver, and a carabiner clip/bottle opener. The Skeletool keeps weight and volume to a minimum without sacrificing quality or functionality. Two versions will be available — the Skeletool ($72) and Skeletool CX ($96; shown), which switches out some of the stainless steel components for carbon fiber.
