Necessity is the mother of invention and in 1983 that motivated Tim Leatherman (then an engineering post grad from Oregon USA on a trip round Europe) to design and market his first ‘Multi Tool’. The Leatherman brand is now synonymous with rugged, precision engineered and practical tools – not toys or simply gadgets but hardworking tools.

At Countryside Ski & Climb we’re always seeking out the cream of the crop and we’re pleased to stock a comprehensive range in the UK. You’ll find a Leatherman in the pocket of participants in pretty much anything that's fun to do outside and avid do-it-yourselfers as well as professional toolkits – so when you have a Leatherman, you’ll be ready.
