A multi-tool that does exactly what it should! Impossible to break, straightforward, and great to use.
- Does what it should
- Can be hard to access some tools
- Gets dirt trapped in it
Great tool. I have been using this thing daily for about five or six years on and off. It's a simple design so pretty hard to mess it up. It's super convenient to use the pliers; everything else is a bit harder to get out.
My only real complaint is trying to get the knife blade out with short nails and larger fingers. Other than that, this thing is pretty great.

This is a great multi-tool without the bulk. Durably built and small, this is one of my favorite multi-tools.
- Not bulky
- Easy to operate
- Not a ton of features
A lot of multi-tools try to cram as many different things into them as possible, often times leaving them bulky and hard to operate. This Leatherman Kick is just the opposite. To me it seems to be a simplistic approach to a multitool. It gives you the basic things that you want out of a multi-tool while keeping it simple and small.
It is built very well. I used to work for a beverage company and used it all the time, every day. I was pretty rough on the thing and it held up over the three years that I worked there. Now I mostly use it while camping and doing other outdoor things and I love having it around!

I would recommend this for anyone. I use it at least once a week between work, cycling or anything you can imagine outdoors. Mostly i use the pliers but there have been lots of times where the knife or the screwdriver have saved me tons of time.
- The pliers
- Gripped sides
This is a great product. I grew up using my Dad's Leatherman with a lot more features and thought I would be disappointed with this. After a couple weeks of use, i can proudly say that i don't miss any of those extras. Mostly i use the pliers, wirecutters, screwdrivers and sometimes the knife. I've never been someone that carries a knife at all times so the addition of one here is great for those times i actually need one.
I've had this product for about a year now. So far nothing has corroded, rusted or otherwise fallen into bad condition, it's like the first day i bought it. The only thing that has changed is that the parts open and flip out easier and the leather pouch has been broken it. It only improves with age.
Overall, it's a great product and a great price for what you're getting. I would recommend it for anyone, especially those that don't need all of the features of the highend version.

I generally carry a Swiss army knife with me at all times and only use/carry a pliers based multi-tool when working or when I know I'll need to tackle a heavier duty job.
My Kick has been my constant companion for about a year at work, I rarely need to use it, so the light weight is a huge advantage, I never realize it's on my belt until I need it. The Kick also has all the tools that you are likely to need in a Leatherman tool.
I wouldn't use this as my only tool or to go hiking with, the tools are more geared towards occasional tasks around the house and work than what you would find at a campsite or on a trail. I would recommend this to anyone who needs to occasionally use a tool and doesn't want to go digging around in the toolbox, but doesn't want the extra weight of a Leatherman wave in their pocket or on their belt at all times.
As with all Leatherman tools the durability is outstanding and if anything would happen to break on it you can fall back on the great warranty that they offer on all their tools
