I didn't give much thought. I'm going to play a lot with it the next days. First impressions?First of all, thanks a lot to Metro. It is great. It is big. It is made with great quality and expertise. He made it red and black, as he was asked.All my big tools fit in.The side tubes fit the Spirit and Charge but also the Swisstool and Surge (tested). The Swisschamp XLT fits in the sidetube also! The XLT fits in the main pocket and the back pocket and the center pocket accomodates easily the XAVT!!!Problems? Well, most pockets are deep, so short and little items are difficult to find a place in there. I used my Greek Army sewing kit holder (the cheap plastic envelope in OD into the back pocket) to put there all little and short objects: Victorinox sharpening stone, sewing kit, alcohol pads, band-aids, needles, surgical blades, pencils and IKEA paper ruler, safety pins etc. That was a nice solution, although I would prefer something in black.I put in everything I EDCed and then some more. So there's one additional multitool (the Charge) and one additional knife (the Endura) one additional bit kit (the Leatherman two cards), one additional adapter (the Leatherman extension) and one additional sharpener (the Victorinox dual sharpener, without the cap) that I didn't EDC. But they all fit and there's room for more! I think that I might add the Ritsartz Picnik knife because occassionaly I need a fork and a clean knife (I use my Opinel for much dirty work). My 32 pieces bit kit fits also with the XLT in the central compartment but I thought it was an overkill since there are the Leatherman cards and an assorted 11 item kit. I never carried the Endura but it fits so nicely in the MOLLE bands it is a pitty to leave it behind (I hope no cop will ever check my bag). I might put the Surge or the Swisstool in the sidepockets when I predict harder work (when I visit my daughter for example) or put something with different capabilities in one pocket, like a Crunch.Indeed, many, many options. the only thing that is out of the question is to put that monster on my belt. No, that would be a revelation of the worst kind.I put an aluminium ring on the front flap so I can hang it open somewhere when I have to work on something (the same way I do with my travel shaving and personal hygiene kit). I think that's a nice idea.The Skinth fits nicelly in my Victorinox Trevi bag and It will fit for sure in my Victorinox monosling and backpack. It will be easy for me to transfer all my tools from bag to bag or leave behind all my sharp and controlled items when I visit the prisons or put them in at once my checked in luggage when I have to travel.Would I change anything? Some minor things. - I might have chosen the front panel to be flat (Metro gives that option of course) although it might prove very practical to be able to put items with pocket clips there. But the flat panel would allow better handling and one might add an ID card translucent pocket to add a bussiness card or personalize the skinth with a motto, a sticker etc. - I would prefer the side tubes with velcro. They would be flat this way. Ther was that option in the past but no more I think.- I would also pay something more to replace the D ring (and the buckles) with something of a better material, like metal. - Since the CatchAll is so deep, I would add a couple of shallow pockets of half the height for small items. - The Catch all is so big that the "Skinth in Skinth" is a rational move. So I would add an option for a small "purse" with 2-3 pockets for all small items. It could be made to fit exactly the back pocket.- The CatchAll is so big and can be so heavy that a small handle of the same material on the top of it would help a lot. That's an easy one.- I would add a "Skinth" logo somewhere. Come on Metro! you deserve to have your logo on these masterpieces.Overall I am very excited. I had to wait for two months and 5 days but I will enjoy it for many years to come, that's for sure.
Since my Bahco knife can't fit it the Skinth, a small Bahco adjustable wrench would do.
