Leatherman Raptor

The Leatherman Raptor is a tool we've talked about before, but due to it's popularity it's always worth being talked about again!

The Raptor is basically a tool that first reads as just medical shears, but really is packed full of all the necessary tools needed for uniformed professionals to safely and quickly go to work in an emergency situation. This tool was developed with special input from special ops medics, EMT's and fire professionals making sure to cover all the bases of what is needed when you're on the scene and have one tool to do the job.

The Raptor is known to have just the right balance of multipurpose features for medical-special ops without an overkill to complicate a life-altering situation.

The tools included in the Raptor are 420HC Stainless Steal Folding Medical Shears, a strap cutter, a ring cutter, a 5cm Ruler, an Oxygen Tank Wrench, and a carbide Glass Breaker.

The hard stainless steel design keep this tool powerful, strong and ready for any situation, and pocket
clip (which is replaceable) keeps it ready and handy at all times. It comes with a MOLLE Compatible Injection-molded Polymer Holster that's great and makes it easy to keep this tool handy when you need it.

With a 25 year warranty, you just cannot go wrong with the popular Raptor. Let's see what others are saying about it:

"Great item to carry daily on my belt. Worth the price for all the options this tool gives in one small package. Strong, durable construction. From cutting clothing to simply removing patient identification bands upon discharge, this tool can do it all."

"I work as a flight nurse and a Trauma Program Manager at a Level II Trauma Center. I got these as a gift and they seriously kick butt. They'll cut through a bikers leathers in a flash. The only con I would have is that they would not have had to make them collapsable. They occupy the space my old trauma shears did in my flight suit and I see no need to ever need to fold them up."
