Leatherman’s New Multitool
The Leatherman Charge has been the pinnacle in multipurpose tools over the past decade, offering premium materials with maximum functionality. The Charge+ G10 builds upon that legacy. Packed in its 4-inch frame is a top-of-the-line S30V knife blade that provides the perfect balance of edge retention and corrosion resistance. The lightweight G10 handles enclose the 19 tools and provides a secure grip to get the job done in any weather condition. The Charge+ G10 was created with advanced materials specifically for the users who are the toughest on their tools.
“Leatherman is dedicated to driving innovation in its design, that includes choosing premium materials. Adding G10 to a legacy tool like the Charge+ only increases this tool’s toughness and durability,” said Jeremy Rodriguez, product manager at Leatherman. “In addition to its inherent strength, the composite nature of G10 gives us a lot of layering and color options to play with. G10 is definitely something you’ll see more of in the future Leatherman line.”
The Leatherman Charge+ G10 will be available exclusively at REI and Cabela’s for the next 12 months. Red will be sold at REI and Orange at Cabela’s. MSRP is $169.95 at REI and $179.95 at Cabela’s. .

WHAT IS G10?
G10 is a high-pressure fiberglass laminate, a type of composite material. It is created by stacking multiple layers of glass cloth, soaking in epoxy resin, and compressing the resulting material under heat until the epoxy cures.
Fiberglass is already extremely strong and durable, but weaving it makes it stronger. The woven mesh is covered in an epoxy resin, which cures into a hard, plastic-like material.
The fiberglass can be virtually any color as can the epoxy resin. The mesh can also be woven different ways, allowing for creative and unique textures.
Epoxy doesn’t rust or oxidize, doesn’t become brittle, and doesn’t soften over time, ensuring a long-lasting tool.
