The OutdoorGearLab test team is a practical group of outdoors-minded, self-reliant folks. Life can feature repairing a broken car headlight or cutting steak while catching a High Sierra sunset. Our everyday life is perfectly conducive to tool testing. For this review, we carried this set of contenders, usually one at a time, for several months and used them nearly every day. We measured and weighed all the tools and asked each to perform standardized tasks. Each competitor with scissors was used to cut climbing webbing. All passed. We tried to cut a piece of wire coat hanger with each one with wire cutters. We turned screws into and out of wood with the appropriate driver and kept track of the results for this extensive review.
