My go-to Leatherman is the Surge. Its a more robust tool than their other offerings. It can handle extreme task with little problems. The only downside is the the weight makes it uncomfortable to carry on your hip. Although at times I do in the field. We have a video overview that we will be posting in the next few weeks giving a complete overview of the Leatherman Surge system. You can see all its features and functions there.
The first thing I did was ditch the factory pouch. I went with a Maxpedition Single Mag Pouch and it works quite well. It can be carried horizontally or vertically on the belt, also having the capability to attach to PALS webbing.

In most cases I would prefer a multi-tool over most items in a survival situation. Especially in an Urban setting. Where I may have to make repairs to my truck when bugging out or to skin out a white tail dear.
