Gerber Bear Grylls Compact Multi-Tool by Bear Grylls
2.0 out of 5 stars Pliers? Liars!, 18 April 2014
As other reviewers have posted, the pliers are really not up to much. It really does not take much effort to bend, break or distort them. They're more like a beefed up pair of tweezers, OK only for VERY light duty work.
On a positive note, the blades are very sharp, particularly the serrated one. I haven't had the opportunity to use any of the other tools, although Phillips screwdriver doesn't look very promising to me.

To sum up, knife OK, wouldn't bother with the rest, despite the quality feel and overall "heft" of the product. Also, I find Bear Grylls really annoying!
Magnum Unisex Adult Stealth Force 8.0 Leather Ct/c&hellip Magnum
5.0 out of 5 stars Good boots, 28 Feb 2014
Had these for nearly 2 years now and wear them most days. Still very comfy despite spending 8-10 hours per night on my feet. I like the side zip for ease of removing, especially after a 10 hour shift! Starting to look a little tatty now but then, they have spent nearly 2 years in a warehouse environment. The only problem I have with them is that the velcro tab that holds the top of the zip up sometimes lets go, but only on one boot, so I can't really complain.

I will be buying another pair soon. Also, I have a non-safety pair which are even more comfortable.

If you can justify spending this much money on a pair of work boots, buy some now.
AmazonBasics Microfibre Cleaning Cloths Pack of 24 by AmazonBasics
4.0 out of 5 stars Microfibre rules!, 28 Feb 2014
Not the thickest or the largest cloth available, but still a useful size and very good value. Keep a couple in the car for wiping windows or by your computer to clean the screen. It's micofibre so still great for cleaning, dusting or polishing just about anything. I find them especially good for cleaning glass and mirrors.
