This is exactly the same as a Gerber Suspension, except having BG in bold orange on it, and the suspension over five dollars cheaper.

I've had a Gerber Suspension for 6 years and it's served me well.
I know there are a lot of Leatherman loyalists, but for $30-40, it's a steal.

I keep a Gerber Multi-tool in my gig bag. You wouldn't believe how many tight spots this thing has gotten me out of at a gig.

Letherman, Use it nearly on every job - Gerber Suspension Multi-Plier

u/Ksrugi · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I grew up in Louisiana and always had these at the ready in case another Katrina came by. Barebones and lightweight in case you need to get up and move.

Multitool - Something that's sturdy, offers plenty of options, but also is lightweight. If I got washed out, this would be one of the top things I'd want coming with me.

First Aid Kit - You just never know. Water can hide a lot of nasty stuff like sharp metal edges, broken glass, etc. The kit I've linked to also comes with a multitool.
Water Filtration System - Dehydration will get you before anything else. Southern heat combined with physical exertion takes a lot out of anyone and tiny filtration systems like this will take care of you without adding bulk.

Meal Replacement Bars - You'll ideally want a few days emergency food. I recommend meal replacement bars that are high in protein and fiber and no less than 500 calories. They'll provide decent nutrition and should make you feel satiated for at least 2-4 hours. I don't have a recommendation on this one because there are so many brands and flavors.
Hand Crank Lantern - A reliable source of light that you can crank on your own. Generally, I avoid using generators and the like. I'm paranoid about electricity after flooding occurs.

Whistle - Great for alerting people without tearing up your vocal chords. It's also very, very, very good to have in case animals that shouldn't come by are nearby.
Dust Mask - If your city floods, there's going to be a lot of crud that comes up from the sewers and a lot of things accumulating inside buildings. Save your lungs and your noses.
Portable Battery - I love this age of technology we're in. Charge this a few days before the storm hits and you'll be able to keep your phone charged for days if the power goes out.
Insect Repellant - The ample amount of still water after a hurricane is prime bug nesting. A little repellant goes a long way.
Paddle Your Own Canoe by Nick Offerman - Or any book really to help pass the time. This is a fantastic read though. :)

  • I was hoping the four liters of ready-to-drink water would help me avoid the complexity of collecting/purifying water and be sufficient for the distance/duration I need to walk. Most available water sources near Chicago are pretty polluted with all manor of disgusting stuff, even on a normal day, so I hesitate to risk consuming it. Thoughts?
  • I had never heard of a silcock key before, but I'll be adding that to the bag. Good suggestion!
  • I'll also get a multi-tool. The Gerber 01471 seems to get pretty good reviews for the price. Any other suggestions? Ashamed I didn't already think of this...

Could get them each a Gerber multi-tool, though cutting the cake with the blade from one might be too geeky.

u/SweeneyOdd · 2 pointsr/TheBrewery
u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I actually own a Gerber multi-tool, this one to be specific. I love it, but it is a bit bulky/heavy, I certainly wouldn't take it backpacking. I know Leatherman makes great multi-tools as well, so honestly, I don't think you can go wrong either way.

u/jtskywalker · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

Yeah, but they're really cheap. About $25 compared to an $80 leatherman. I have the Gerber suspension and I've been very happy with it for the price. I got it just to have some kind of multi tool and I have used it way more than I thought I would.

u/Jteph · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Aaalright so he's a simple man. I love that. He likes his tools and his gear to be life lasting and that's something I totally agree with.

A strong ass hatchet would be something manly that he might like.

I know this is out of your price range but a good electric Drill saves you so much trouble when you love fixing things around the house.

He has a pocket knife? Why not a multi-tool. I love these things. Super useful. Or a Swiss army knife.

I would love to have any the above mentioned items as gifts so yeah.

Hope you will find the perfect one thou. Happy hunting :D

u/Stormrider001 · 2 pointsr/knives

Okay these are not surplus but if you want to stay around $25 here is a list. Personally I think a person in the field will probably use a multi-tool the most often, but just in case I have tried included fixed blades that have a way to mount on a molle and had a dark coat and folders.

For Fixed Blade

Schrade SCHF36

Schrade SCHF31S

Schrade SCHF59

If you are willing to wait several weeks

HX Outdoors D-124 Fixed Blade

HX Outdoors D-121 Fixed Blade

HX Outdoors Tactical


For folders - Ganzo has a good line of budget knives. These have a dark coats

Ganzo G7563

Ganzo G7453

If your willing to wait several weeks

Ganzo G729 (like a paramilitary 2)


For Multi-tools

Firebird F202-B

Gerber Suspension


Hopefully this has helped and sorry it took a while to respond. My reddit app crashed on my phone so I had to rewrite the list

u/bore-ing · 2 pointsr/HelpMeFind
u/photosynthetica · 2 pointsr/Outdoors

Well said.

Leatherman is the standard, but in practice I've found it's kind of middle of the road insofar as longevity goes. I'd go with a Gerber or a SOG myself. But yeah, keep away from mystery brands and make sure it has a bunch of tools on it that give it a lot of functionality. Can opener, both philips and flathead screwdrivers, and a sturdy pair of pliers with the wire cutter interior are what I'd look for personally.

This is the one that I've used for years on job sites and outdoors. No problems, ever.

u/Ivashkin · 2 pointsr/unitedkingdom

I carry mine (a Gerber Suspension multi-tool) all the time. In my bag, in it's pouch. I've never been stopped with it. But if I am then my answer will always be "I work in IT, this is a tool for my job, I use it for everything between opening boxes of kit through using it as a screwdriver/pliers". I don't think they would have a problem unless I was in a club, taking it through airport security or waving it around for self defense.

u/dbinkerd · 1 pointr/VEDC

I've had several multi-tools over the years and all of them had good features. Hard to pick which was was best overall, but I will say I am currently going with a Gerber Suspension in my 72 hour kit. I am happy with the design and build.

u/smith_x_tt · 1 pointr/EDC

I have a gerber suspension multitool and it's awesome for the price.

u/lusciouslou · 1 pointr/EDC

I have never carried an actual knife. I've always carried a multitool. It's much more useful while at work. Mine isn't the highest end, but I use it daily.

u/perrofeo · 1 pointr/EDC

IT guy here. I work IT on offshore platforms from the trailers in the construction yards all the way through the operations out in the Gulf. So I would like to say that I work in relatively harsh environments. The tool that I use is the Gerber Suspention Tool. It can be found at any Wal-Mart for ~$20 and it fits my needs perfectly.

I have used every single tool on this thing and not a single one has failed me. I love that it has a straight and a serrated blade. I've even used the saw to make a hole for cables. It's light and it fits perfectly in my hand.

Other than that, I have a Leatherman Style CS on my keychain. But for work, I personally recommend the Gerber.

u/JackEoh · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Expensive and hard to get hold of in the UK?!
I got a leatherman wave at 15, and now carry a skeletool CX at all times. Admittedly, they were 90 and 70 quid respectively. However, any outdoor store stocks the full range, as do many good tool stores.
as for price, I give you the Style CS.

If you really do want a leatherman, 20 quid with free shipping is practically nothing for the quality of tool you are getting. The same as a cheap night out!

Alternatively, if you want the pliers, Gerber is there for 25, and other Leatherman, including the basic skeletool, start out at 40 quid.

You have no excuse!

u/auxiliary-character · 1 pointr/Guitar

I have this in my pocket at all times.

u/Cuz_Im_TFK · 1 pointr/knives

I carried a victorinox for years, and they're nice because they're so compact, but I find their blade/tool locking (if they have it) to be flimsy and unreliable. I also really like having pliers, which you don't get with a swiss army style pocket knife. I made the switch to butterfly-style multitools and have never looked back.

My personal recommendation is to check out this butterfly-style Gerber Multi-Tool The Multi-Plier. This is the model I have and I absolutely love it. I've had it for a few years now and it works and looks like new. Really solid tool-locking, easy releases, very nice spring-loaded pliers, and I've never needed a tool that's on the more expensive ones but not this one. And on top of that, it's only $22 on Amazon. right now, which is just unbeatable in terms of value (I think I paid 40 for mine).

As far as an actual knife goes, I firmly believe that you should always use a dedicated folder instead of a multi-tool if you're going to be using it a lot or for critical applications. And for that, you really can't go wrong with a Benchmade with an Axis lock. It's far and away the best knife lock on the planet and the only one I trust my fingers to. I remember seeing a video where they resistance tested a Benchmade, and when the pneumatic thingamabob got up to 1200 pounds of positive load, the blade snapped before the axis lock did.

My personal recommendation for a Benchmade is the classic 710 in D2 steel. This is my EDC (the Gerber stays in the car) and I use it every day. I remember the day I got it I held a piece of printer paper, freely hanging, with one hand and and then sliced it in half just by lightly pulling my 710 through it. I remember thinking I could NEVER have done that with my swiss army knife—I was hooked. I literally have absolutely zero complaints about it. I can't think up a single downside to this knife. It's as close as you can get to perfect IMO.

Its Knifecenter page claims that it can support 200 pounds of negative load (pushing on the back of the knife towards your fingers) and that even when it fails, it crumples instead of just being released onto your fingers. Mine has never failed on me (you have to be doing something seriously wrong to put 200 pounds of negative load on a folder). And finally, beware counterfeit Benchmades. The out-of-production butterfly knives are the most commonly forged knives, but you should still make sure you buy from a reputable vendor like Knifecenter just to be safe.

And finally, /u/ElBomberoLoco is right about car escape tools. Get a dedicated one of those too—there's no reason to have it on your multitool, and I wouldn't trust one that was added as an afterthought anyway. Just spend the $15 and pick up a real LifeHammer. This thing is tried and tested and has overwhelmingly positive reviews. This is the kind of thing you go name-brand and dedicated-hardware for. I linked the glow-in-the-dark one, but you can save a few bucks by going with the non-glowy one. (Beware: the "Car Hammer" on Amazon is a cheap knockoff of the LifeHammer. It still probably works, but it's not worth saving the $5-6).

Hope this was helpful. Let us know what you end up buying!



So, TL;DR:

For a multitool, look into the Gerber Multi-Plier. For a knife, any axis-lock Benchmade should be fine, but seriously consider the 710. For a car escape tool, go with dedicated-hardware from a reputable vendor that's well-tested and has good reviews, like the original LifeHammer. Beware knockoffs.

Gerber Suspension, cheaper than Leatherman and easier to use plus it comes with a lifetime warranty.

u/ki77erb · 1 pointr/EDC

Before the list, I would just like to personally thank all of you on the EDC sub. Many of the things I use everyday, I bought after seeing them here and reading your reviews and recommendations. I love seeing the diversity of the tools and stuff you all use. I'm including links to where I got my things just to save anyone the time searching.

Here's my EDC on a budget...

Phone: OnePlus 5t (8GB/128GB). Recently replaced my aging Nexus 5. No phone has ever been perfect in my eyes, but the 5t is awesome and lightning fast, and it doesn't have a bunch of bullcrap and bloatware.

Knife: Gerber Suspension. I have several knives, but this is the one that goes with me everywhere. The pliers, screwdrivers and scissor get used more than the blade.

Watch: Timex Field Chrono. Inexpensive, accurate and reliable. Plus I think it looks cool.

Flashlight: J5 Tactical V1. Got this to replace my Mini-Mag LED that constantly flickers with even the slightest shake or bump. I used to love Mags when they had incandescent bulbs. They really f'ed up their LED tech though.

Field Notes: I also do drone photos for real estate and I use this as a flight log.

Other stuff: Cheap glasses because I lose or break them about every 6 months. Chapstick, Levis wallet, car keys, G2 pen, wallet survival card ($1 at Walmart) comes in handy.

Not pictured: Altoids to cover up the coffee breath. Ringke Fusion phone case.

u/Telluride12 · 1 pointr/geek

My mistake. Mine is the Gerber.

It is 10.56oz. The weight only bothers me when it's on my belt. It's heavy enough that it falls off my belt on its own when I undo my belt.

Other than that the suspension aspect of it is awesome.

u/ThirdTier · 1 pointr/knives

I have a Gerber Suspension multitool and I think its the best product Gerber has to offer right now. It's very well made and comes with a wide variety of tools, including full sized spring-loaded pliers for only about $30. It's a great deal.

However, it is a medium sized multitool, and it's a bit heavy, so it might not be perfect to carry everyday. But it does come with a nylon sheath with a belt loop, so it's not too much of an issue if you don't mind carrying it on your belt.

Here it is on Amazon for a more in depth look:

u/UnderwaterJones · 0 pointsr/self

I would spring for the $3.48 and get this. It's the kind of thing you wouldn't normally think to buy, but is really nice to have around.

u/Mr_Weebles · 0 pointsr/EDC

My EDC Multitool is the Gerber Suspension. Best one I've ever had.
