Leatherman Makes Major Changes to the Charge+

The new Leatherman G10 Charge+ is an off-the-hook sexy tool for whatever you need to do in your life whether that is hunting in the back country, fixing fences, repairing cars and gear, or daily every day carry (EDC).  The G-10 Scales and the S30V steel blade offer a lifetime of use. The new Charge+ comes in red (REI) or orange (Cabela’s).

“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 Charge+ has 19 tools in a 4-inch body. The new texture on the handle offers a superior grip whether your hands are wet and cold.  This tool will break down for cleaning. You can even replace the hardwire cutters if you burn through them.  

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 $179.99


Leatherman has kept the Charge at the top of the heap for over a decade. This new version of the Charge+ gives us high quality steel, the G10 high-pressure fiberglass laminate-coated and scaled handles making this the new flagship of the Leatherman lineup.
