    So anyone carry a mini crescent wrench? I recently picked up a Tekton 4 inch that opens up to 1/2". Handy little tool.

    I carry one in the side pocket of my Surge sheath along with the bit extender, it stretches a good bit, but it seems to be holding up

    I can never seem to find one that I like but I do carry a PocketWrench and just Lurve it!
    I think it goes to 3/4" too and is also a pry bar and bit driver.

    I would buy a tiny crescent though in a second if one called to me.

    I carry a 4" one clipped to the outside of my bag. Useful when a Leatherman just won't do.

    I used to carry a 4 inch. Then went to 4 inch vise grips. Then went to. LM crunch. Now I find that the CX in my pocket coupled with a bit set extender 4 inch widgy and a pocket wrench handle it all with less weight. If I can't fix it with those I need to go home.

    I ride a motorcycle as my daily driver, so my tool kit always includes a small and mid sized adjustable wrench in case of emergency repairs.
    However, about a year ago I got a few sizes of this little gem:

    Fantastic tool! Does everything an adjustable wrench does, plus much more. It doesn't take much room at all; I keep one in my mini tool kit at all times now. The above pictured pier-wrench is their 6" model.

    I picked up a four incher with an insulated handle to throw in the side pocket of my ST 300 sheathe. Fits fine. Never carry the thing, so it just kinda sits there. But, it fits fine. A Pocket Wrench II is in the back pocket.

    I used to carry a 6" one but I found I never needed it. I have a Crunch and a Charge so it's enough for me, even though they kind of destroy the nuts and bolts

    I have a 4" craftsman crescent wrench in my backpack but I can't remember the last time I used it.

    Love them. Have quite a large collection of 4"/100mm mini-wrenches, especially older vintage ones from the 50es and 60es.

    One of these is in the slash pockets of the Sabercat. Proboably one of the few things that can fit in those pockets, the other is a Boker Coptool. The fit in the pocket is snug, but it's still attached to the bag with a static line, in case the bag gets dropped/rolled.

    I carry around a 4" Craftsman in my EDC bag (as opposed to my EDC Weekend bag). Never used it, but came close a few times after I needed one and didn't have one.

    I was thinking of getting one, and this thread pushed me over the edge. I looked at the Tekton 4 inch and like it's compact size, but it goes to 1/2" and I got to thinking about all of the 9/16" bolts out there, so I ordered the Tekton 6 inch because it says it'll go to 3/4". I plan to carry it in my edc bag, a LA Police Gear bail out bag in the side pocket made for a gun. Since I don't have a gun, it can ride in that pocket with my Bible, and stash of fast food napkins.

    I carry an Irega 4 inch in my Skinth 2XL Sheild. They are made in Spain and are very high quality. I suggest them highly.
