That's even a great deal here in the states. Retail on the style cs is probably $25 or so and $30? for the wingman. And hey, great opportunity to compare one of the very best scissors to one of the very not;)

Where in the States do you live Colt? I checked a Home Depot this morning and I didn't see anything. Depot sells the Wingman alone for $30 so its a pretty darn good deal. All of the Depots around here (PA and Delaware) don't have any of the Christmas gifts deals like that out yet..

Yeah, whenever leatherman puts out these 'bundles', it seems like they just charge for whatever is the most expensive tool in the bundle, and give the rest away as freebies.
The Skeletool + CS bundle in Canada was the same price as the skeletool on its own.
The Wave + Bitkit + P3 in Canada was the same price as the Wave on its own.
The Surge + C33 + Tac Torch in Canada is the same price as the Surge on its own.

Kinda makes it hard to justify picking up the tools on there own, when you know theres always the chance of a bundle coming out that would give you free extras.

If i saw one of these bundles locally, id pick it up in a heartbeat. Right now i'm using my blast as a EDC and wouldnt mind trying the wingman out. Though honestly, would prefer the sidekick over the wingman.(Hate comboedge blades)

Wingman is ok, wish i would of got it in the bundle, the problem is the inner tools have no locks, so the screwdrivers keep folding on me. Hate that !!

I love the 'wingman' ! I'm not a fan of combo blades, but i need scissors more than a saw. and that 'parcel-opener-hooky-blade-thing' is really handy !

Just picked up one to try it out. It will more than likely be stocking stuffers for the kids this Christmas.

I am going to pick one of these up this week.  My local home depot shows 29 in stock.

I already have a style CS but I give this one too my wife.  May pick up a second combo pack as a christmas gift.  We have a family gift swap with a 30$ limit

The Wingman came with quite a bit of play in just about every tool including the pliers head. It also appeared to have light rust in multiple spots right out of the clamshell. Its returned and done with.

 bummer, mine has play in the handles when closed, but when open it is fine. It's a beater !! entry level  !!  One thing i really like about it is the box cutter.

I have had a few other Wingman back when they were first released and I had no problem with it, but they ended up getting traded off. I figured I might as well give one another go since you get the Style CS for almost free. Its alright though im not bothered by it. I "might" and its a big "might" go get a Sidekick to try out.  :D
