If you're a person who never likes to be separated from your tools, then the Tread bracelet from Leatherman might be just what you're looking for. This stylish chunky bracelet is actually 25 tools in 1. Each of the 10 separate links on this bracelet include 2 to 3 fully functional tools, including screwdrivers, box wrenches, a carbide glass breaker, cutting tools, and an all-important bottle opener. The links are interconnected, but extras can be added or removed, so it can be customized to fit your wrist size. It's made out of corrosion-resistant, high strength stainless steel so it won't let you down when you're in a bind!
Leatherman president, Ben Rivera, said the idea for the Tread came from personal experience,
“The idea originated on a trip to Disneyland with my family. I was stopped at the gate by security for carrying a knife, when what they had actually seen was my Skeletool. I was unwilling to give it up, so they made me take it all the way back to my hotel room. I knew there had to be another way to carry my tools with me that would be accepted by security.”
This awesome invention would be great for hiking or camping, or for those who like to have easy access to tools on the go. Although it seems to be primarily marketed toward men, the fact that links can be taken out to fit a smaller wrist means that it could be ideal for women, too.
For anyone who doesn't really feel like a bracelet person, the Leatherman Tread QM1 will be available from Fall 2015, which incorporates a Swiss-made time piece. Classy!
We think this bracelet is a ridiculously good idea. It's functional, yet pretty stylish as well!
