One of the the most unexpected finds at the SHOT Show this year is this crazy thing from Leatherman. It is a watch–but that’s not really why I’m sharing the news with you. The band is made up of individual tool links. You need a screwdriver? There it is, on your wrist.
If you don’t want a watch, the contraption is available as a bracelet. It is called the Tread. Easy to see why. The links are stainless steel that are injection molded. I put the thing on at the show today and it feel ridiculously masculine. It is very heavy and totally bad-ass.
It took me a minute to figure out how to make it work, but it isn’t that difficult. Simply take it off, and fold the bracelet over at the link you want to access. Prices on the individual links are currently set between $11 and $14.40 for the stainless, slightly more for the black DLC finished ones. These look like a great masculine fashion statement. How well will they stand up to use? The Tread feels pretty robust.
