After being denied entry to a theme park because of a multi-tool, Leatherman President Ben Rivera sought out another way to carry a security-friendly multi-tool and with that idea the Tread was born. Rivera began wearing a bicycle chain on his wrist to get a feel of how a wearable tool would work and that turned into a watch-style bracelet with tools integrated into links.

Each link is injection molded and was designed to be fully customizable with slotted fasteners so you can rearrange or add links. Tools like hex drives, cutting hooks, box wrenches, and glass breakers come with the bracelet and they've also added a bottle opener and a #2 square drive into the clasp.

You're probably already thinking how perfect this braclet would be on a watch, Leatherman plans to release a watch version of the Tread later this fall.
