One of the most iconic pieces of outdoor gear is, without a doubt, the Leatherman multitool. But, as with a lot innovations, the road to success wasn’t as smooth and straight forward as one would think. This great little documentary –– which I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at back at winter Outdoor Retailer ––shares the story of how Tim Leatherman came up with the idea to create such a tool, while also documenting the challenges he faced in bringing it to market. It also shares some stories of everyday people who quite literally had their lives changed by these tools. The clip is certainly well worth a look, even if you’re not an outdoor gear nerd.
