5.0 out of 5 stars Cool tool, 8 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Topeak ALiEN II Bike Multitool (Sports)
I have bought this to be my constant companion when out on my bike. My reasoning is that the one time I am likely to need a tool kit is when I am far from one. So if I carry one with me, I will either never need one (Murphy's Law), or will be ready for action. So I bought the Alien II.

This tool fits the bill perfectly for me. It has every gadget I might conceivably need for an on-the-spot adjustment or repair, and it is also very solidly made. There is no wobble in the hinges, the lock mechanism is rock-solid, and the metal quality is hard and does not feel like it will wear and deform. The ability to split the tool into two is a very insightful piece of design -it makes the tool twice as easy to use in the hand,

What the pictures and blurb don't really convey is the surprising compactness of the Alien II. It is a very neat small thing in the hand, and takes up little room in my bumbag. It is the easiest thing to take with you on a bike ride. The case is made from a very tough-feeling woven fabric, and has a belt loop on the back, so it is easy to fasten onto a belt, rucksack or bumbag exterior.

I am glad I spent a little more than I might have done, and went for this. It feels very dependable and I am sure will last a lifetime.

A lovely bit of kit.
