    I havent found any that are close to what I would want. and all I would actually want would be just a regular flathead and Phillips screwdriver in a safe package that could be clipped to my pocket.

    Here's mine.

    Only flip the wingnut around and add a jam nut. Accepts any standard drill bit.

    • Edited. See Rule 12 of the EDCF Member Rules
    I have the Stanley 4-in-1, and like it a lot. I keep it clipped on my bag, but it could easily be kept in a pocket. Tried posting a link, but it wouldn't work.

    The Stanley 4-in-1 is awesome, but I stopped carrying it and depend on the drivers in my Leatherman 300 (I'm a 'one tool does it all' kind of guy). Kershaw makes the 1920 model pocket knife that has a place to hold four bits and a decent driver... but it is a tad heavy.

    I own a Wera Kraftform Kompakt 10 and its good for pocket carry. If you want a clip it would be easy to screw one into the body of the screwdriver holder.

    I carry a Wilton W6 Pro all the time and there is nothing else like it that I have seen?
    They stopped making them I think but you can still find them and it is the closest thing to 6 nice screwdrivers that can fit in a pocket that I know of and I have tried a lot of them.

    I don't always pocket carry but usually have it in a RipOffs holster along with a MT and light and it is a real screwdriver all the way.

    Just an option worth looking at.

    I carry the same. There's 3 different ones.. Scooped up a bunch on clearance at Grainger before they discontinued them.

    When I work for my company I only need 3 torx, a Phillips and flat.. The "auto" one was perfect.. Got one for every one of our techs when I was a supervisor.. (plus some personally as a backup)


    Best driver I ever had

    I only have the Orange ones which are standard and phillips but I do have several of them,works out for me.
    Between the Leatherman bit set and one of these I am pretty much set most days.

    If you just want to always have a few screw drivers on you there is a very small item from a swiss card with 4 screwdriver heads, two flat head and two phillips, that you could just slip into you wallet. It's about the size of a coin.

    I think the entire point of the original post is how marginal or un-appealing the pocket drivers are that you can easily find,the Swiss Card being among them?

    So the idea is to find some that are above and beyond the rule and are exceptional instead.

    I like the Snap-On and Gearwrench ratcheting screwdrivers the best in almost all applications and they both make smaller stubby models too but whether they are small enough for pocket carry is debatable probably.

    The nice thing is that they are tough and well made and the ratchet is really fine tooth and not sloppy at all which makes them worth it for me but again they might not be small enough too.
