I traded in my old belt for one of these 686 "Snow Tool Belts" a couple weeks ago and I'm just loving it. Conceived of as a set of snowboard tools built into your belt, the buckle is actually two screwdrivers (Phillips and slot), a bottle opener and a hex socket wrench. It snaps off the thick, high-quality leather belt with four poppers so that you can deploy it without taking off your whole belt. I've just had my first occasion to use it -- needed a Phillips to open the battery case of some electronics -- and it was great, like I was still carrying a multitool (a habit I kicked after losing half-a-dozen of the expensive little bastards to the TSA). I'm not sure if this guy'll survive airport security, but I'm gonna try it out this week in the UK, Germany and the US.
