As a US Army Communications Sergeant, I can tell you, without a doubt, that this is the best multi-tool I've ever used. I was issued one about 4 years ago, and used it every day without fail. (until last month, when I lost it during training in Louisiana...)
As said before, the flaps that cover the tools fall off, but it has no affect on the overall usability of the equipment. The gear-driven pliers give much more leverage than you'd get from a standard Leatherman or Gerber, and the tools stand up to the abuse I've put on them for two deployment to Afghanistan.
I just picked up a new one at the military gear store for $75. I'm in for three to replace this one when i lose it.
I pulled the trigger on this... I have been using cheap, crappy multi-tools for too long. Ironically, I bought them from Woot and did get my money's worth out of them.
In for 3. I've got one, and hands down it's the best multitool I've used. Great gifts too.
This is the best multi-tool I've used. I'm picking one up as a gift for my brother-in-law. For those of you whining that it's not sufficient for "Cyber Monday", I'm sure you can find great prices on Justin Beiber cds and frilly underthings at Target.com.
I bought one of these last year for myself. I had no idea I would love it as much as I do. It has great weight and is a solid tool. It's always with me when I go camping.
I wished I bought one for dad when I picked mine up. Don't tell him that he's getting one for Christmas!
As an Explosive Ordnance Disposal Craftsmen in the USAF, I can tell you this thing really is awesome. I have taken mine to both Iraq and Afghanistan and have beaten the crap out of it. I am, however, missing half of the straight knife blade due to my own stupidity trying to pry open a case of C4 with it.
Don't be fooled by the clever marketing though. The blasting cap crimper is not approved for use. OH NOZ LOLZ...
p.s. I have used mine plenty of times to crimp the odd cap or three.
Just a note: Don't use this for ordinance disposal. To be used in EOD the device should be coated in a non-conductive insulator to prevent arching.

I will keep that in mind in case my pool is out of regulations and the city catches on.

Agreed....although some people do find it more comfortable to grip the tool with the covers on.
I used one of these a few years back when it was marketed under the brand Paladin Tools. It never let me down. In for 3 this time, since I missed it last time and lost mine.
I was just using mine yesterday around the house so I didn't hesitate to purchase this for a nephew headed into the Army next month. Being a full sized mulitplier it provides a good set of tools to work around the house or farm when you just need to fix something simple without dragging out the tool box.
Climber Aron Ralston cut off his arm with a multi-tool, only his probably cost about 3 dollars...
In for 1...
My son the firefighter lost his on a recent call. He keeps it handy at all times.
The price here is excellent. I own one and have given a couple others away to good friends. No one has any complaints other than the covers over the tools sometimes fall off. The leather cover is substantial, but it's design makes it top heavy while on your belt. The needle nose ends make this an ideal fishing tool. I have the model with the V-cutter, which goes thru line and cord with ease. And keep in mind that with SOG, you can buy other parts to replace broken or unused items!

That seals it. I've had two of the Made in China knockoffs fall apart, so this one's worth it.
Do anyone actually ever use these? Other than the survival guys on the Discovery Channel?

L= Leather Case, N = Nylon Case
Got one from steepandcheap.com a while back and the quality can't be beat. You won't realize how useful it is until you have it.
Got one of these the last time it was on Woot...I couldn't be happier with it. I've owned Gerbers and other major brands...but nothing compares to a SOG. Woot it up - you will NOT be disappointed.
Can someone Private message me the coupon code found in the description!?!?!?!?
terrible product for the audience.. there's no handymen in the bunch... doesnt Woot! know this site is filled with techie geeks and stay at home moms?
Good tool and a great price, but it's very slow to deploy the tools inside the handle. And the handle covers will fly off if you're not careful.
Where, is the coupon code please?
Gave these out for groomsman gifts. My Brother-in-law is using his in Afghanistan right now fighting terrorists with it.
Does the case have the ability to put a belt through it?
In for 1. Upgrading from my (smaller) Leatherman Kick which I love and use all the time. This one has a saw & file which I need and those kick-ass pliers. My only concern is the side sheaths popping off but the price is right and SOG makes good stuff.
I have a similar, though not identical, SOG multitool, and I've been extremely happy with it. The pliers are crazy strong, and the knives are good also.
I keep one in a tackle container, & I use it when I'm fishing. It is not made of stainless steel. After 1 year of use, the tools inside the handle are completely rusted. No, I have not dropped it in the water! FWIW, the pliers themselves are still OK.
45 dollars is a little steep for me. Although this would make me the worlds coolest 30 year old cub scout.

In for 1. Still disappointed not to see a woot-off. Maybe there'll be a happy hour for the twitter followers.
SERIOUSLY, who can tell me what the hell is the coupon code?
lrae18 wrote:Does the case have the ability to put a belt through it?
Yes it does and it's a bit generously sized for all kinds of belts. I've found I prefer to acquire a single nylon pistol magazine pouch and have carried my SOG tool in that ever since.
In for two, one for me, one for my brother-in-law. The many positive comments here convinced me!
Uh, the coupon code thing WAS a troll, right? yeah?
I, too, would love to know the coupon code (if there is one).
Please note, the Powerlock pictured has the older powerlock single rocker locking system as opposed to the newer piano lock system. This means there is one bar lock for all the tools as opposed to individual locks for all the tools. This has not been an advantage or disadvantage in my use, but I thought that I would point it out just in case someone disliked it. (Although when I ordered my black EOD powerlock from woot previously, they pictured a newer piano lock one and I got the older single rocker)
I have had one for about 6 months now and it has been great. Was able put together some furniture with it and use it all the time for little odd jobs around the house. At this price I may get another to keep in the car.

It's stainless, but you have to understand that even stainless steel isn't rust "proof", just very rust resistant. (The addition of chromium is the primary difference between carbon and stainless steel.)
So in your environment of high humidity (tackle box), probably in a saltwater area if your avatar name is any indication and without any regular oiling/preventative measures, even the hardiest stainless tool will rust.
Is this suitable to keep on a key chain? Where do you guys usually keep something like this?
I guess i am also a slow one today. can someone please share the code? (other than the serendipity or tax one)
ok, i just read the description, twice, and still cant figure out the code.
