It may not slow your fall, but the Parachute Multi-Tool can fix things once you land


Parachute Multi-Tool

I will admit that I am a pocket multi-tool lover. I guess I picture myself as a closeted Boy Scout, aways wanting to be prepared. So when I see a different design for a pocket multi-tool, I like to post about it. The Parachute Multi-Tool, a Kickstarter project by Jeff Morin, recently caught my eye. The Parachute is a 10-function multi-tool that incorporates some unique features, like a saw and a hook cutter. The Parachute has:

  • Belt loop hanger
  • Bottle opener
  • Flat head screwdriver
  • Hex wrenches (5mm 1/4″ and 1/2″)
  • Saw blade
  • Keychain hole
  • Scraper
  • Can opener
  • Seatbelt or hook cutter
  • Ruler

Made of stainless steel with either a matte black or silver finish, the Parachute is 3.5″ high X 2″ wide X 0.15″ thick. The Parachute has several pledge options, with a pledge of $19 getting you your choice of the black or silver matte-finished Parachute. Funding for this project runs until October 21, 2013, and if successfully funded, the Parachute is set for delivery in the November 2013 time frame.

    Am I the only one who looks at this and thinks of the Superman symbol? I can’t be.

    @Forrester Ok, I can kind of see that.

    Nice. Maybe it could have 5cm option on the ruler on the other side?

    @Michael I believe that suggestion or one similar was made in the comments section of the project.
