Gear Review: Leatherman Hail + Style PS

Brand: Leatherman Knife Reviews

Model: Hail + Style PS

[Cool tool] Though it’s billed as primarily a snowboarder’s tool, this slim, two-piece, clip-anywhere gad- get works just as well for any winter warrior, as we discovered on trips to Colorado’s 10th Division Mountain Huts. Most commonly used features? The scraper for cleaning up gunk and lazy wax jobs, and the pliers and screw- driver for snowshoe binding adjustments. Even the diminutive scissors proved helpful for repairs and first aid because its spring-loaded design is easy to operate with gloves on. Bonus: a bottle opener. Extra credit: Both tools are TSA- compliant. $45; 3.2 oz.;
