Our readers had their eye on the Leatherman Raptor multi-purpose shears this past week. While a set of trauma shears might not be the kind of tool you'd initially picture when you think of a Leatherman, they can be an essential part of an emergency services personnel's carry, first aid kit, or in emergency bag. Some of our readers even vouch for its everyday functionality as well for tasks around the house or outdoors. That's because the Raptor offers a unique toolset in its 420HC stainless steel medical shears, ring cutter, oxygen wrench, rescue hook/seatbelt cutter, and carbide glass breaker tip.

These US-made shears also collapse down to a compact 5" length and come equipped with a pocket clip for ease of carry. For easier access and quicker deployment, you can also carry the Raptor in its open configuration with Leatherman's included polymer holster for a belt or PALS webbing. The Leatherman Raptor now comes in several new colors as well, ranging from your typical tactical tones to hi-vis green, blue, or red options. Check them all out at the link below.
