As there are so many designs of Leatherman multi-tools to choose from, this article will differentiate between the Leatherman Sidekick vs Leatherman Wingman. For those of you who have never heard of them, these are multi-purpose tools that are travel-friendly as they fit in any pocket! They are extremely convenient to have in the home as they can be used in so many ways.

When looking at these tools, you will immediately notice that both tools have similarities in the way that they are designed. They are also portable and lightweight, which means that you are able to easily carry these tools anywhere with you.

The Sidekick and the Leatherman are the best-sellers in the Leatherman range, and it can become quite confusing to choose between the two as they are similarly designed. These tools have the same size and weight and ease of use. The similar prices can also bring confusion when deciding upon which product is suited for you.

Therefore, an in-depth analysis will be constructed to ease your choices and help you decide.

Leatherman Wingman

The Wingman is made of stainless steel, contains 14 tools and a blade locking feature to ensure that it can be handled safely.

The selling point of the Wingman is the incorporation of spring-action scissors. The scissors can be used for a number of purposes. The tool also contains a combo knife, pliers and two blades, measuring at 2.6 inches. One side of the blade is serrated and one side is grounded. Also included is a wire cutter, wire stripper and small ruler that you are able to use to easily make measurements. The Leatherman also holds three screwdrivers in various sizes, and a file.

Leatherman Sidekick

The Sidekick is made of corrosion resistant stainless steel. It also comes with a lanyard so you are able to hang it easily. This is one of the features that differentiates it from the Wingman.

The Sidekick also contains 14 tools. However, while the Leatherman’s selling point is its scissors, the Sidekick contains a saw that is handy if you need to cut thicker materials. Two kinds of pliers are available. Also available is a serrated knife, wire cutter, wire stripper and bottle opener. The Sidekick also holds three screwdrivers in various sizes, and a file.

As mentioned above, the only differing feature between both these tools is the accessibility of having a scissors or saw. It is completely up to you to decide what the tool will be used for.
