Lets kick it OLD SCHOOL.
« on: June 06, 2019, 05:41:11 PM »
I dont know when these first came out but I do recall looking at them and wanting one.  MT, pen, light, and whatever else you can fit.  Seemed like a great idea at the time.  I found both new and one was NIP but yes clearly I opened it.  I ran one on my work tool belt just to see how it would work and not surprising it was great.  Not the most compact kit for everyday use but neat enough.

Friend of mine used a simple model for his Multiplier for years--since new. I've been looking for one of the USA-made ones with all those pockets; for pens, MT accessories, and of course, the MT. Locally, I have found Harbor Freight and CLC versions; the CLC is decent, the Harbor Freight a waste of dough.  My cellphone holster has the "new and improved" rotating clip, and it's always resulting in the phone disappearing.

Not sure which looks better--those are actually my two favorite colors.

Its certainly not what we would consider slim by Skinth standards but not horrible.  Would make an ok pack organizer.

That's a pretty cool loadout, Aloha!  IIRC, those sheaths are one of the products that put Nite Ize on the map.

I too remember see those long, long time ago and wanted one pretty bad.  Nice to see it back in action again! :like:

Wow, I haven't seen those in a good long while! I used to think they were so cool and useful looking. But now it's all nostalgia. Don't get me wrong, l dig that thing in the same way I dig my Buck 110. Except I would never give up my Skinth for that or even 2 of them... (but 3? We prolly got a deal!) I remember these were displayed almost right next to the Leatherman tools, must be just those kind of people need that kind of stuff.

Life is hard. If it wasn't, everyone would do it.

Nice pouches.  Looks like they fit a lot with minimal extra bulk.

Nite Ize puts out a lot of varied stuff. I have some small S carabiners that I use for the ThundahBeagle's dog tags and collar. Its metal and plastic. These cool sheaths are obviously nylon...

They seem to be pretty diversified yet within a certain niche

Makes me want to find out more about the company.

I bet these sheaths would be great for a building maintenance crew or HVAC tech and folks of that nature. I wouldnt consider carrying all that around on my belt just as daily carry as someone who works in an office setting. I get enough jabs carrying a Leatherman in a leather pouch on my belt. But again, if I were a handyman or in the trades, I'd sure use it

No way as stealthy as a Skinth.  I got them for very very cheap.  One was NIP the other is new just no package.  I thought they were neat so I had to get them.  I actually put a few small items in one and have put it in my bucket caddie.  Its a decent way to carry a few smaller thinner tools.

I’ve been modifying those for years



By far my most used sheath, almost everyday.

 :tu: Nice.  They're old school cool for sure.  I am still using one for work that carries a few items.

I knew I had one of those somewhere, and just dug it out, you can see the dust :o
I never used it as its too big to pocket and my bag is a maxpedition over the shoulder jobbie with plenty of pockets for all my bits and pieces.
But you never know it may come in handy one day.


My trouble is i never show initiative, but that's only because no one has told me to.

 :tu: They sure were neat and still are.  We've just come a long way from the size of these.
