Good for the price
Reviewed in Australia on 13 July 2020
I’ve never owned a multi-tool before and I didn’t know which one to buy, so I bought 4 for different use cases: Gerber dime + suspension nxt, leatherman micra + wave plus. The dime arrived first and is of great quality, so I had high hopes for the suspension nxt.
However, like others have said, there is little quality control on these. The main complaint is the handles don't close flush. To fix this, I used a wrench to grab the pliers right between the legs, and with some force either pulled or pushed on opposite handles until they lined up again.
Other issues such as an inconsistent use of force required to open the tools, some almost flip out with gravity whilst others are sticky, and the locking slider is very rough. It does have a nice texture though, like a matt silver, so feels nice in hand.
Even though the leatherman wave is 3-4 times the price, I prefer it much more for edc. This will stay in my car for emergency situations.
