SOG Vs Leatherman Part 6

Written by

Part 6 1We are down to the semi finals here, with SOG leading by one point and two events left!  Who will reign supreme, the Leatherman Skeletool or the SOG Reactor?  Leatherman is down a point already, so let's see if they can pull off a win!

Part 6- Carry Methods

Another big strength of the Skeleool is its versatility in carry- it can be clipped onto a pack or other equipment or clipped to a pocket using the pocket clip.  Conversely the Reactor can really only be carried clipped to a pocket.

Comparing pocket clip to pocket clip to keep them on an even playing field, the Skeletool pocket clip is longer than the one on the Reactor, and generally that translates to a more secure hold in the pocket.  

Part 6 2

However, the Reactor pocket clip allows the Reactor to ride much lower in your pocket, and the fact that it is shorter is offset by the fact that the tool itself is shorter.

Instead on this one I think I am going to call it a draw, as the clip is far better on the Reactor than the one on the Skeletool, but the Skeletool offers us twice as many carry options, both of which are highly effective.

Part 5 1Like I did with the screwdrivers, I think I am going to have to rule this one a tie, not because they are the same, but because the Reactor is superior, but the range of options provided by the Skeletool is undeniable.

SCORE- SOG 5, Leatherman 4
