OK, so there are so many multitools out there these days and I have always been a fan of Leatherman. gerber evoI did however get my old trusty Leatherman taken away from me in Dublin last year at the airport…Wouldn’t even let me check it. Grrr, I thought oh well let me pick up a Gerber EVO and see how well it works.

1st off Gerber has been around for a very long time and make excellent knives and multitools. The EVO is a great multitool with a lot of nice built in features like locking the tools in place with a double lock and very nice needle-nose pliers and wire cutters.
In fact I really like the multitool a lot except for the phillips head screwdriver. Its too flat and I think that Gerber can make this a lot better on the next generation. Check out the EVO – Still a great multitool!

All in all except for the phillips screwdriver I really like the EVO  from Gerber. I would not backpack with it though as it’s just too heavy and big.  usually bring a much smaller multi-tool with me into the back country to save weight. Having a multi-tool with you out there is priceless and nice to have for any gear repairs or maintenance.
