Kool Tool - The MacGyverish Belt Multitool
Remember MacGyver?
He was always able to pull a quick one and get rid of the army of bad people following him around in seconds! Part of his cool escapes was his brilliant mind (read the director’s brilliant mind) and part of it were various cool gadgets he had on him.
I bet if MacGyver was still around, the Kool Tool would be one of his main clothing accessories!

The Kool Tool Belt from Bison Designs is made to help you in various unpredicted situations life throws at you. The multitool stays quiet, hidden as a belt buckle waiting for you to request it’s assistance.
