JackFish is a cool pocket survival kit designed to help when you’re in need. While the JackFish contains real survival items like an aluminum whistle, an iodine vial, windproof matches, a Spyderco Bug Knife and a liquid filled 15mm compass, I wouldn’t really count on it as my main survival kit when the Zombie Apocalypse comes!
On the other hand, given it comes with a micro standard and Philips screwdrivers, a Kingston Micro SD reader for important documents, a telescopic pen and it doubles as a credit card carrier, it can be a helpful emergency kit throughout the day, at home or at the office.
While cufflinks are not mandatory every time you wear a dress suit, they can be an amazing opportunity to tell people around something about you!

For that matter we compiled below the coolest functional cufflinks we found around! Check them out after the break and let us know what’s your favorite pair of cufflinks!
The Tool Pen Mini – The Ultimate Pocket Screwdriver is a cool pocket multitool designed by the Taiwanese company Mininch to help you repair small things and gadgets in style!
Made of high grade aluminum with a sand-blast finish, the Pen Tool comes in 3 color variations (Snow Silver, Gunmetal, Champagne Gold), measures 5.25″ (133mm) in length, 0.5″ (12.8mm) in diameter, weights 1.6 ounces (46 grams), sports a pocket clip to secure it when not in use, has small windows to help you check the right bits, can hold up to 5 bits at a time and allows you to cycle them by simply popping the bit in the back of the tool.
While everybody goes crazy with multi-purpose smartwatches that track calories, evaluate sleep and fitness and act as a handy interface for your smartphone, Leatherman decided to improve the classic good ol’ wristwatch in a different direction, by transforming it into a super-multi-tool ready to give you a hand when the situation requires it!
The Leatherman Thread QM1 Multi-Tool Watch is an interesting concept which combines a Swiss-made timepiece (quartz movement, rotating bezel, 200m water resistant, scratch resistant sapphire crystal) with Leatherman’s innovative Tread multi-tool bracelet. The wristwatch is TSA compliant (you can wear it in an airplane) and comes with an impressive warranty of 25 years. The Thread bracelet, the coolest part of the watch, it’s fully adjustable 9by adding or removing links), it’s made of 17-4 Stainless Steel and combines 7 unique pieces which contain not less than 20 individual tools – a cutting hook, a bottle opener, an oxygen tank wrench, a carbiade glass breaker, screwdrivers (1/4″, 5/16, 1/8, 3/32″ and #1 Philips), box wrenches (10mm, 3/8″, 5/16″), hex drive (1/4″, 3/16″, 5mm, 6mm), a #2 square drive, a 1/4″ socket drive and a pick/SIM card tool! Just imagine the possibilities!
The Leatherman Thread QM1 Multi-Tool Watch will be available for purchase in the Fall of 2015 and will set you back ~$500-$600 US.
Here at CoolPile.com, we’re big fans of cool multipurpose tools. Usually they’re small enough to be carried unnoticed in your jeans pocket, they’re cool (hey, how many of your friends have one on them right now?) and they help during the day accomplishing small annoying tasks.
As we already saw, played and featured a lot of multi-tools here, we were (almost) convinced that there’s not much out-there that can still impress us! Well, as always, there’s still something else crazier, cooler and better than what we saw before. This time we’re speaking about the Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT) 9070 Guppie Multi-tool.
Designed to easily fit in your pocket (so you have no excuse of leaving it home!!!) the CRKT 9070 features a wide array of tools to make your life easier wherever you roam: a 1/2-in wrench, a 2-in (5cm) high carbon stainless steel blade which can be opened with one hand, an universal screwdriver with 4 screw driving bits included (two of each Philips and standard sizes), the included bit-carrier also sports a LED flashlight, 6-point interchangeable hex drive, and a carabiner for easy hanging and carrying (doubles as bottle opener).
The Gator Grip Universal Socket is a universal wrench that instantly adjusts to just about anything you need to screw or unscrew! The super-tool sports a unique build with 54 hardened steel spring pins. When placed onto a fastener, some pins retract while the rest of the pins surround it and allow you to easily manipulate the piece.
The Gator Grip comes with a power adapter for electric drills or screwdrivers and can easily replace a regular wrenches kit. It works with bolts, wing nuts, 1/4- to 3/4-inch nuts, screw eyes and just about anything that anything that can be screwed/unscrewed!
Having a muli-tool in your backpack can really be a situation saver! And, based on the fact that the best tool ever is the one you have on you, why not always carry a super tool with you?
The Leatherman 68010101K is a such multi-tool designed to help you in wide array of situations. Weighting only 9.6oz (272 grams), that’s about 2.5 times more than the iPhone 5 in your pocket, the multi-tool packs a Leatherman crunch, locking pliers, wire strippers and cutters, serrated knife, metal and weed file, inch and metric ruler, 5 screwdrivers (small, medium, large and Philips #1 and #2) and a hex bit driver.
As all Leatherman products, the 68010101K Crunch Pocket Multitool comes with a 25 years limited warranty, which proves the high quality of work and materials used to manufacture this tool.
