Have you suffered the misfortune of having your favorite multitool confiscated by TSA authorities? If you simply must have your multitool even when you are flying, what you need is a TSA-compliant multitool and the Leatherman 831488 Multitool is just such a tool.
TSA regulations state that you cannot bring a knife on board and while the Leatherman 831488 has many tools hidden within its two handles, a knife is not one of them. Besides the regular spring action pliers that also double up as needlenose pliers and wire cutters, the Leatherman also has both flat and Philips head screwdrivers, a nail file, a pair of tweezers, spring-action scissors, carabiner and of course, the omnipresent bottle opener.
While the Leatherman 831488 multitool is rather small and flimsy looking, all its tools work rather well. We would have preferred a much bigger and less dainty looking tool but it is highly unlikely that the TSA will allow a much bigger and more threatening looking tool aboard a plane. Many users remarked that most of the time TSA personnel just give it a glance without asking for the tool to be opened.
