Review: Leatherman FREE P2 Multi-tool

Review

When you dig into the numbers, it might surprise you to learn that the most-carried multi-tool in our community by a large margin came out twenty years ago. Despite its age, the Leatherman Wave has yet to be dethroned as an essential EDC crowd favorite. 

So, how do you make what's arguably the best multi-tool even better? That's the challenge the designers and engineers at Leatherman spent the better part of the past five years trying to solve. Their answer: the all-new FREE collection, a complete overhaul of the Leatherman lineup of tools designed from the ground up as a modern evolution of the EDC multi-tool. They're jam-packed with new technology and innovations aimed to deliver unmatched durability, quicker access, and easier operation than ever before. 

After meeting the Leatherman team at their headquarters in Portland, OR for a deep dive into their next wave of tools, we tested our review unit of the FREE P2 for a couple of weeks to gather early impressions. In this review, we'll see if the new Leatherman FREE P2 will really click with modern day EDCers.

The 10 Best Pry Tools in 2019

When you need to pry things apart or gain access to closed spaces, there's really only one tool for the job: a pry bar. But traditional pry bars are usually too big to carry every day, and even if you could tolerate the weight, lugging one around could give people the wrong impression about your intentions. In the absence of a pry bar, a lot of people resort to using their EDC knives to wedge things open in a pinch. Not only can that ruin your knife, it could also get you injured in the process. Thankfully there's more than a few compact, dedicated pry tools available for your everyday carry. In this guide, we'll highlight some of our favorite EDC pry bars that you can pick up today.

Titaner Pry Bar Multi-tool

EDC is all having the right tool for the job, but if you’re not mindful that can lead to a pocket full of bulky gear weighing you down. That’s why so many people rely on multi-tools to cover as many bases as possible. Having one piece of gear that gives you access to multiple tools in a pinch can keep you from needlessly damaging your gear like when using your knife to pry something open (we’ve all been there). The Titaner Pry Bar Tool makes a strong case for why you’d want to add a small one piece multi-tool to your daily carry with its set of 7 handy tools and titanium construction.

Unlike your knife point, this Titaner Pry Bar was made to do some heavy lifting. The body is CNC machined Grade 5 titanium and its angled pry tip means it’s easy to get the right leverage without worrying about breaking it. But prying things is only part of what makes this tool a good addition to your EDC. Besides the tough and super lightweight build (15.9 grams including the bit), you’ll also get 7 other useful tools built in.

There’s a screwdriver, three different sized wrenches, a hex bit driver, and of course a bottle opener to name a few. Plus, the angled nose doubles as a box opener so you can save you knife from the sticky residue that comes with slicing open packages. As great as plier-based multi-tools can be, they’re not always convenient. But you can just toss the Titaner Pry Bar can on your keychain thanks to a key loop hole and small size. It’s also TSA-friendly so you won’t have to worry about it getting confiscated on your next trip.

Whether you’re looking to slim down your carry or think it would be nice to have a keychain backup to your primary multitool, the Titaner Pry Bar is a solid option. The combination of its small size, tough build, and useful tools make it worth checking out. Make sure to grab one for yourself by clicking the link below.

Dango P01 Pioneer Wallet & Pen

Dango has a track record of combining premium materials and a smart design to create unique and functional wallets for the modern EDCer. One of their best examples of this is their recent P01 Pioneer wallet: an all-in-one leather wallet, notebook, and EDC pen system. And after its successful run of pre-orders on Kickstarter, the P01 Pioneer is finally available to order and ship. In case you missed the Kickstarter, now's a good time to revisit the wallet to consolidate your EDC.

Dango looked at an EDCer's typical carry and then redesigned the traditional bifold to cover those bases, resulting in a wallet that’s anything but traditional. The P01 Pioneer combines three EDC essential items into a form factor perfect for your front pocket. Not only do you get a wallet made of top notch materials like Italian leather and aerospace grade aluminum, but it also comes with a 48 page notebook and a pen for jotting down that great idea when inspiration strikes (or for your grocery list). You also can’t forget that because this is a Dango wallet it’s fully compatible with their MT02 card-shaped multitool. Letting you transform the one item you already don’t leave home without into a robust tool that can handle most everyday tasks.

On the right side of the wallet you'll get a space for the included 48-page notebook, while the left slot is perfect for storing up to 20 cards. All of which are safe from thieves thanks to an RFID laminated material built right into the P01 for added peace of mind. The included pen accepts Schmidt 4889M ink for writing in any condition, and because of the tough aluminum construction you won’t have to worry about the pen breaking in your pocket. The daily grind will only add character to the premium leather making it more your own as each day passes.

Whether you consider yourself a minimalist always looking to slim down your pockets or have been looking for a quick and easy way to add a notebook to your EDC, the Dango P01 Pioneer wallet might be for you. Best of all there’s no need to wait thanks to the success of its Kickstarter and those who backed it. Treat yourself this holiday season with a functional wallet by clicking the link below.
