Leatherman Charge TTiThe TTi supplants the XTi as Leatherman’s top-of-the-line multitool. Not only is the TTi .10 ounces lighter than the XTi, but it also packs an S30V stainless steel knife that delivers an optimal combination of edge retention, flexibility, and hardness. This is an upgrade from the XTi’s 154CM steel knife, which previously was the highest grade knife you could get from Leatherman (incidentally, Leatherman outfitted the Charge ALX and AL come with 154CM blades, an upgrade from the standard 420 series knife). The TTi also has a crimper and a cutting hook. The crimper is an ideal accessory for anyone working with electrical wires or metals, while the hook is a fantastic addition for those who need to be ready for emergency situations.

Cost: $110 @ Amazon

The TTi combines the features of the ALX and the AL into a single package (There is one small exception: the ALX is the only Charge to have two large bit drivers.). For example, if you’re looking at the ALX or the AL you’ll have to choose whether you want a cutting hook or scissors, because neither has both (the ALX has a cutting hook while the AL has scissors). If you think you might need a cutting and scissors in the same multitool, then you should strongly consider the TTi.

Both versions will carry the tools in their open or closed position and two side pockets hold your extra necessities&emdash;even a mini-flashlight. An inside back pocket holds Charge’s included bits and has room for a full Bit Kit (sold separately) giving you up to 42 bits to choose from. Don’t want to wear a sheath? Then clip your Charge to your jacket, backpack or car’s visor with the removable pocket clip. Or, choose the quick-release lanyard ring. With it, you’re able to safely keep the tool on any lanyard and detach it quickly when you need it.
