Swiss+Tech Mega-Max folding multi-tool puts 15 tools in your palm

The Swiss+Tech Mega-Max is a multi-tool with an interesting design. It has a rectangular stainless steel frame that holds 15 tools that include screwdrivers, hex drivers, wrenches and more (see the full list after the break).

  1. LED Flashlight
  2. #2 Flat Screwdriver
  3. #2 Phillips Screwdriver
  4. 2mm Hex Driver
  5. 2.5mm Hex Driver
  6. 3mm Hex Driver
  7. 4mm Hex Driver
  8. 5mm Hex Driver
  9. 6mm Hex Driver
  10. 8mm Hex Driver
  11. T25 Star Driver
  12. English Wrench Set (1/8, 3/16, 5/16, 3/8, ¼)
  13. Metric Wrench Set (4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 7mm, 8mm, 9mm)
  14. Nail Puller
  15. Pry Bar

The fact that this multi-tool offers so many tools is nice, but I’m not convinced that the tools would be comfortable to use because the “handle” is wide and flat. If you have to use any real torque, I think the edges would dig into the palm of your hand. I’m just speculating though.

You can read more about the Mega-Max by visiting Swiss+Tech and you can order one from Amazon for $15.56.

    As Scooby-Doo would say, “Ruh Roe.”

    It won’t be an ideal tool for use – but it will be a good tool for people who don’t have space and just want the ability to do small repairs. Given the tool selection, I think it’s likely aimed at bike-campers – it would provide a full tool kit to repair most things they need to carry with them (you’d still want a separate kit to repair a flat tire), and it wouldn’t take much space.

    Basically, either a conversation piece or an emergency toolkit in minimal space. Not horrible for the latter – especially at the price.

    The ‘wide and flat’ handle thing really isn’t an issue. In fact, it can be a bonus, especially for those with slightly larger hands. My edc is a Swisschamp XAVT which is about as wide as they come, but after a short period of adjustment I found its size allowed me to get a properly strong grip on it for those tasks that demanded the exertion of a bit of brute force.
