Baladéo Locker 18-Function Multi-tool: Every Tool a Traveler Could Need
by Mike Richard | July, 2013
There are countless multi-tools available for backpackers and outdoorsy/adventure travel types. But a solid one will typically set you back well north of $100 USD.
Which is one reason (among many) why we really like the Baladéo Locker 18-Function Multi-tool. It’s a professional stainless steel multitool with a sleek aluminum covered handle and (no surprise) 18 functions, including: universal and cutting pliers, knife, can opener, hole punch, saw, corkscrew, hole for thread, 3 flat head screwdrivers, 3 philips screwdrivers, and 5 wrench sizes. What’s more, it comes with a nylon travel sheath and features one hand opening and closing.
Ultra-minimalists and carry-on-only travelers will notice the one drawback: tossing this in your luggage guarantees you’ll need to check it. But we think that’s a small price to pay if it means you’ll have virtually every tool you might need on hand for your next long haul trip.
