    Wave carried at the 4-5 o'clock position, but HORIZONTALLY. I found that vertical carry tends to poke when I am in certain positions. Sheaths can be easily modified for horizontal carry.

    Belt pouch.

    Or, rig up a lanyard on a small carabiner. One end has a keyring. Attach multitool to the keyring. Attach other end of lanyard to carabiner. Place carabiner through belt-loop. Place multi-tool in pocket. Let the lanyard cord be a bit short so that the multi-tool isn't weighing down your pocket.

    This works best with multi-tools that aren't too heavy and that have a folding lanyard attachment. Works even better with Leatherman Skeletool since you can unsnap the multi-tool from the keyring if needed.

    The only multitool I currently have (excluding SAKs) is my Leatherman CS4 Juice which I carry pretty much every day. I HATE that leather snap sheath for the CS4. The other day I was going through my shooting stuff, and at one point I had bought a Rainbow of California Knife Sheath (Medium) to carry a spare Ruger LCP magazine. Fits the CS4 Juice nicely, so that is my new pouch.

    So, long answer to your short question, belt carry with http://www.rei.com/product/409214

    After 6 years of carry in the original sheath,
    [​IMG]
    my SOG PowerLock has currently been riding in the pocket behind the strap buckle on my Colossus Man Bag ..
    [​IMG]
    It's highly accessible and discrete .
    Although it has not fallen out (yet), I'm thinking about attaching a strap to the top seam of the pocket and some velcro just behind the lip facing the back of the strap to keep it secure while still maintaining ease of removal .
    I've also been rotating various folders in the opposite pocket .

    BE WELL .. GH

    Oooops!

    :crackup: :bounce: :dance:

    Amazing!
    The postmaster watched me packing them,asked if they were strong little magnets: ("Yes,sir!)
    .... then asked if they were fragile :("Yes,sir!)
    ....then gave me two heavy cardboard stiffeners to place on the outside of my padded mini-envelope,then grabbed a stampgadget & marked the Priority envelope FRAGILE before I put the padded one inside it.

    :agree: :laugh: ;D

    I had no idea they were not USPS approved....No joke.

    Leatherman Wave in the front left pocket using pocket clip. I've broken quite a few clips getting snagged on stuff, but I like carrying it there.

    Since I do not go out of the house without a full size multi tool and my pockets are full of other stuff . I carry multi tool on my belt in the stock case that the came with tool. That said of the three I have to coose from I prefer the Nylon molle case of my black SOG powerlocks to the stiff leather one that I carry my plane stainless SOG powerlocks in.

    I bought that same sheath, and I really wasn't that happy with it. It was just too difficult to get to the Juice, and to put it back in the sheath. My solution was actually to put my Leatherman Juice S2 in a small Victorinox belt sheath! It fits just about perfectly, snaps shut, and works perfectly for me. I didn't want to overload the whole right side of my body with my EDC stuff, so I put mine on the back of my left hip, clipped to my belt.

    Leatherman Charge Ti in right front pocket with the pocket clip. I don't need to put a knife there, since I've gotten a HAK.
