abunda_amazon_reviews Was very excited when I first heard about this leatherman utility tool bracelet, but was equally disappointed upon receiving it. Although it seemed very sturdy and well-built, the design of this tool is extremely flawed in my opinion. The biggest problem that was evident to me instantly is that the standard size of the bracelet is noticeably larger than the average males wrist, meaning it will be necessary for most men to remove a link or two immediately and sacrifice some of the tools in the process. With each link consisting of two tools, don't be surprised if your short up to four tools in order for it to fit properly. And because each link has two tools fixed on them, you don't have complete independence as to which tools you choose to remove, you're forced to decide which set of tools to do away with as opposed to picking them individually. The odds of the two tools you would prefer to remove being on the same link are pretty small so prepare yourself to sacrifice a tool you would like to keep. I was wanting to add the watch face to the bracelet but that would have required me to drop another two links, leaving me short 4 links (8 tools). The price was not terrible but a little too high in my opinion and way too high after realizing I had to discard a couple links to make it fit and four links to add the watch. I'm a big fan and supporter of leatherman products generally but this one didn't make the cut in my book. I will continue to carry my leatherman wave everywhere I go but I returned this bracelet for a refund.;;Reviewed in the United States on October 19, 2017;;2.0 out of 5 stars;;Great idea but not practical;;Amanda;;;I'm using this as a watchband, to do this you will need to purchase the treadlinks separately and know the correct mm size of the lugs on the watch you plan to attach it to.

I purchased it with the intent to install a Samsung S3 watch on it. This requires an adapter kit, which I also purchased. The Tread arrives much too large for the average wrist, and you must remove links. Thus, you can't wear the Tread without removing some of the tools you have purchased and, assumedly, wanted to use. This is a significant design limitation. In addition, it was ridiculously hard to remove the links and adjust the band to fit my wrist. Small spacers are apparently available, but not provided. I have the Tread reasonably well sized now, and it is quite uncomfortable. The Tread is just too heavy and bulky for normal use. Or extraordinary use! Because of the problems setting up this poorly thought out device, it is not for the faint of heart. Sturdiness and durability not known at this time.;;Reviewed in the United States on April 12, 2019;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;Not recommended;;Jon from Reston VA;;;I've been wearing/using my Leatherman Tread for about 2 months now and I think that after the initial honeymoon period, I can now give it pretty fair assessment. With many more good traits than bad balanced against cost, I would rate it a "very good" (not perfect yet). I'm not a big jewelry person and have consistently eschewed big, chunky, Rolex-type jewelry watches and bands as too ostentatious and impractical. But, I found an increasing need for a "dress" watch (to go with suits as sports watches just look inappropriate) and the Tread seemed to perfectly fulfill my wishes to look respectable, while remaining practical/prepared at heart. The Tread is unexpectedly comfortable. It has not pinched, pulled out hair, scratched me, or left deep permanent tool marks. Except for the exceptional heaviness, I would not notice it much at all. After sacrificing two full links, it fit my wrist perfectly. So far it has only accidentally unclasped once during an especially energetic hand tool movement (crushing salt) and even then, the watch stayed around my wrist. I had much initial concern about the SAE screws that held all the links together, but after two months, I have not noticed any unwanted loosening. I continually monitor these parts and post an update later if it becomes a problem. There's always LocTite I suppose. Note: I wear mine almost constantly now (outdoor work, in the shower, immersion in seawater) and it shows no sign of corrosion. The tools do scratch the surface, but I expected that. To my surprise, the most used and useful tool(s) happened to be the Allen hex keys. There are two in particular that I used several times a week for my takedown recurve bow and my special optics. They are not the most ergonomic tools to access and deploy, but I can say that they function adequately AND, more importantly, they are now always with me on my wrist. The Phillips is probably my next most used tool and, honestly, it is rather hard to deploy and impractically short for much more than a quick tighten on a surface screw. Nevertheless, it is there which is the point. I have used the little cutter-hook blade to conveniently cut cord and wire (particularly when whipping out a knife blade seemed inopportune). Though I have not used it, yet, it gives me peace of mind to have a back-up glass breaker always handy and it obviates a need for me to carry an additional special tool just for that function. The same goes for the O2 wrench. I'll probably have no use for the various hex cut outs, but who knows. So overall, I like it and am happy with it's functionality and general design. It works well as a comfortable, decent-looking watchband. It works adequately for basic tool needs. I think I am fair in down-grading it a Star for it's function limits, for it's heaviness (which could be alleviated with Titanium, hint, hint!), and, alas, it's value/price. Also, this last section is not part of the critique, but simply an expression of wishes and suggestions for future improvement. Let customers choose link sets (metric/SAE). By including both, it takes up valuable link space with almost redundant sizes. Also, consider, an all Robertson link and an all Torx link. Some links have a nice hollow space horizontally through the link and I was initially very excited about them since they seem sized to fit the Bit Kit bits, but..... no. So why not? Make one of the vertical holes a bit-driver socket and allow "extra" bits to be carried "in" the band. There are many tools/accessories/gadgets that I would love to see added to the links: mini-whistle, handcuff key, bit-sized pen, replaceable flint/ferrocerium bar, screw-on watertight compartment (for battery, pill, tinder), removable magnifying lens, and perhaps a general slide-in adapter which holds other things hands free, like a micro LED light.;;Reviewed in the United States on December 3, 2015;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Clever Idea, Hope They Add Even More;;Yasunori-San
