Summary

This tool, although claimed to be designed for EMTs, is a fantastic emergency tool for anyone. It’s perfect for car emergency kits. It’s also a great addition for a first aid kit.

Pros

  • You can feel the quality and durability in your hand as you hold it.
  • The fully serrated blade comes razor sharp and cuts with ease.
  • The pocket clip is strong and clips secure to your pocket.

Cons

  • The screwdriver bit seems to be slightly loose. I’m not concerned about the bit falling out but it wiggles a bit inside the tool.

The Leatherman Skeletool RX makes a fantastic addition to a first aid kid or car emergency kit. I take it with me especially when I go on long road trips because you never know what could happen.

Based off of some tests I’ve performed with this product, I can tell it is robust and capable of assisting and rescuing either myself or another person in an emergency situation. I have tested the cutting capability of the fully serrated blade on the RX and it does its job flawlessly. It cuts fast and precise.

I like the concept of the exchangable bit driver on the end of the tool. This tool has a uniqur bit which is the carbide window breaker. I have not had the opportunity to test that out so I cannot speak for that aspect of the multitool. However I have EDC-ed this tool quite a bit, and the screwdriver does i’s job quite well.

I will say that the bit seems shakey when it’s being used. I don’t know if that’s normal or not. But it still seems to be secure.

The product feels great in hand. You can feel the quality and I feel safe when I go on longer car rides when I have this tool in my pocket.

Experience

I have had 8 months experience with this product, a completely positive experience.
