Being prepared for any eventuality can be a full lifestyle dedicated to researching, procuring, and curating the right gear for the right circumstance, all while trying to predict what scenarios could play out. At most, you have exactly what you need, and at the very least, you’ll have the essentials that will help you get through. Leatherman’s line of multi-tools, when matched with the right situation, usually provide the utility and functionality needed, making them an invaluable part of a dedicated kit, as well as a great option for EDC. With the Leatherman x Tonquin Preparedness Kits, the brand known for it’s pliers-based multi-tools partners with Tonquin Trading to create a pre-packaged and pre-curated selection of tools and implements to help you be more than prepared for different scenarios.

Each kit is centered around a Leatherman multi-tool complemented by selected products from other manufacturers—all in a dedicated and color-coded pouch that’s easy to carry or pack. With one each for outdoor survival, roadside repairs, and medical emergencies, these kits have good range of situations covered. Pack one or a combination in your glove compartment, bug out bag, or toss one in your daily pack to add an extra layer of preparedness to your EDC.

Leatherman Signal Survival Kit

Built around the outdoors-oriented Leatherman Signal multi-tool, this Survival Kit comes in a 5.5" x 6.5" green pouch and includes gear to help you survive when Mother Nature decides to throw a wrench in your weekend plans. The included Sawyer Mini Water Filtration System helps eliminate protozoa and bacteria in your emergency water source, while a survival blanket, hand warmer, poncho, matches, and a Pull Start Fire Pull String Firestarter keep you warm in inclement weather. A face mask and pocket tissue keep things civil while out in the wild, and the included 50' of paracord will always find a use, like mounting and securing gear or a hammock. The Leatherman Signal, with its adventure- and emergency-centric set of tools, helps in using or setting up all these implements, as well as providing a variety of practical functions by itself. Finally, a light stick, signal whistle, and signal mirror helps you get noticed when the situation is dire enough to need a rescue.

These kits are great to give people ideas for how to assemble their own kit, but save yourself a bunch of money and create your own. It looks like the most expensive item in each of these kits (and the reason why the price is so high) is the Leatherman item. If you plan to stow one of these away for a rainy day, no need to buy a brand new Leatherman that will never see regular use. buy a cheaper knock-off or a used item for your custom-made kit.

Leatherman Wave+ Repair Kit AKA Kidnapper kit AKA 50 shades of grey kit!

These kits are really nice. I am not sure about the price tag, because my first IFAK as a civilian was a DAM IFAK and it ran about 150. But, the flip side is these themed kits come with a MT, and a quality assortment of items geared toward the purpose. I know my wife will kill me, lol, but I'll give one of these a shot.

Saw these last week on the Leatherman site. I like pre-made and themed kits. Nice to see Leatherman branching out and looking to partner with other EDC and emergency gear companies. But I have to say that I think these kits are way way way too overpriced. Did I mention “way” ?
