Leatherman has partnered with Topo Designs, a bag, apparel, and accessory maker, to offer a new limited edition Skeletool multi-tool.
The new Leatherman and Topo Designs Skeletool features black-finish tools and a bright red, yellow, and blue color scheme. It also comes with a matching tool pouch.
The Leatherman Topo Designs Skeletool features the same tools and functions as Leatherman’s standard Skeletool multi-tool.

The Leatherman Skeletool is a fantastic compact and minimalist multi-tool. Check out my reviews of the original Skeletool multi-tool and Skeletool CX multi-tool. The latest version is very similar, except with a partially serrated knife blade instead of the plain edge blade on the original model.
The included pouch measures 2″ x 5″ x 0.75″ and weighs 1.4 oz. The Leatherman and Topo Designs co-branded pouch features 1000D nylon exterior and 420D nylon interior construction. It has a YKK zipper, 550 paracord zipper pull, and a carabiner attachment loop with an included aluminum carabiner.
Topo Designs Multi-Tool Pouch Specs

- Weighs 1.4 oz
- 1000D nylon outer fabric
- 420D nylon inner fabric
- YKK zipper

The pouch looks to be more than large enough for the Leatherman Skeletool, and could probably accommodate other multi-tool sizes as well.
This is a limited edition, with only 2,500 units made.
If the bright color scheme doesn’t appeal to you, Leatherman also has the Skeletool in silver, blue, green, and coyote tan options. They also have one with a Topo (topographical pattern).
