Cheap but doesn't impress – The Complete Emergency Kit Card for Travellers (11-Piece Set) Reviews

posted by aloscha on 02/03/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Cheap - Contains most tools you may need while travelling - Is okay as a contingency toolkit, but won't survive heavy use due to sloppy manufacturing. Everything works though. - The format makes it possible to carry it in your wallet, which makes it less likely that you will forget it at home when you need it the most
Cons:
- The knife and scissors are not very sharp and made of a low-grade steel - Most tools tend to fall out from their slots
Other:
The ear pick is better used as a tooth pick. But this is a matter of taste.
Bottomline:
If you intend to use this as a contingency/emergency toolkit when nothing better is a available, this is a nice, cheap toolkit in a handy format. Surprisingly, everything works, although not perfect. But the quality is low and continuous use will lead to wear.
