I am in the market for a multi tool. I have a EDC knife however pliers and such would come in handy. I am looking for something fairly light. I need a multi tool with pliers, a knife blade, and philips and flat head screw drivers. Everything other then that is more or less fluff. Having a pocket clip would be a big bonus. Any suggestions?

If you only need something small, Swisstech is a really good choice:

If you are looking normal size, Leatherman has many options that are lighter than most and are good quality.

I own all and use them.
Someone gives me a knock-off version least once a year. I give them away because I know that they will break the first time.
Good Multi-tools are no longer cheap and nothing like might you might buy at Walmart.
Call me if you want a quality multi-tool.

Leatherman Super Tool. Only drawback is that it weighs about the same as a full Glock mag.
I use the Leatherman Skeletool, just the basics and fairly light.

Gerber "Diesel" multiplier is the only one I have. Really can't compare it to any of the others. I do like mine alot.
Leatherman is probaly the leader but Gerber and SOG make some good ones to, shop on-line till you find the one with the options you want then go buy it.

Several years ago I got into a multitool "frenzy" and purchased a bunch of different tools in my personal quest for the "perfect" tool. Never found the "perfect" tool but in my experience the pick of the litter was that Leatherman Wave. I still carry the Wave and the rest are in storeage.

My wife bought me a Leatherman Wave a couple years ago. It's a great piece of equipment. Tough as nails. I am a truck driver and I keep it in my duffle bag. I've repaired quite a few things on the road with it.
Love my SOG assisted multi tool. I now keep one in each vehicle and my range bag.. They are well worth the cost
I have a few, I like my Wave the most.

Leatherman Wave absolutely. Gerbers are OK but I've broken them also. My Leatherman gets used every day and it holds up well to the abuse.

I carry a Leatherman Skeletool everyday. I like it, it's light, has just the basic stuff and a clip, so you don't need a sheath on your belt.
