I always liked the look of the Kershaw Torx Tool which looks like it would fit in the Charge sheath side pocket. I heard some bad things about the quality though, so never ended up getting one.
I have a Zebra F-301 compact pen on one side. I'm looking for a AAA light to go on the other. I was looking at the Maratac AAA. It's 1/2 in across, so I think it might be a little too big. (I'd prefer a tail clicky too) Anybody know if it will fit?
That looks pretty good. I might have to look into that.
Now if Leatherman would make a compact pen, I could have a fully Leatherman Holster
My new Exotac nanoSTRIKER fits perfectly in the side slots! I might also add that the gunmetal color matches my Charge Ti very nicely. This forum has cost me soooo much money..... but it doesn't pay to be the richest man in the cemetery!!!
On each of the expandable sides of your LM sheath are little fabric loops at the top of the expando-sheath.
Run a tiny Nite-Ize S-biner through the loop on each side. You now have additional attachment points to the external part of your sheath!
Granted, you want to keep any attachable tools to a minimum weight due to the rather non-robust nature of the fabric loops. But I keep an Atwood Prybaby and a ultra-lightweight flashlight on one side of the S-Biner and it works just great!
You'll want to do something to keep the S-biner from opening and causing you to lose both the Atwood and the flashlight; S-biners are notoriously unpredictable and has caused many to lose their items. You could slip gutted paracord over the latch and lip, that would help some. *nods* Welcome to the forum, btw.
I have a 4 inch adjustable wrench on one side and a bit extender on the other. I put 1 bit card with my most used bits in the pouch behind the Charge. ( pen and flashlight are in my pocket along with a mini pry bar.)
There is very little I can't do with this set-up.
I keep a LM bit extender in mine
A little off topic, but I keep a Gerber Artifact in the slot behind the tool. (too poor to afford an atwood). I keep the bit card in my backpack (I don't use them enough to need to have them with me all the time.

I got this little pencil in the sheath with a Swiss army knife, and it's the only thing I've used from that package... But I love this pencil! Thick lead, so even left handed I can use it. Use it at least fifteen times a day, goes right in the little side pocket of my Charge Ti sheath.
Bit extender in one, Fenix EO1 in the other. Perfect.
I got my LM Serac2 today. It's a little bit bigger than I thought, and it stretches the pocket a little. I think it will be fine though.
Currently I have a 4" adjustable wrench and a bit extender on the opposite side with a customized bit card in the back. I like to try different combos though. I've carried a Zebra 301 compact, a Streamlight Microstream, and then traded the 301 compact for a Zebra Expandible. Recently got a Pocketwrench, just haven't got around to working it in yet.
In my Charge nylon pouch I have: Ti Nitrade Fisher Space Pen, Fenix L0D Q4, and a customized bit card.
The Medium sized widgy bar from county comm fits perfectly in the side slot. better for prying than the flat driver on the leatherman. if i carried mine in the sheath i'd do a widgy bar and either a pen or a flashlight.
How about a Leatherman Diamond-Coated Sharpening Rod?
does it collapse? it's over 6" as is which is way too big for the side slots.
The file stores inside the handle. The handle is a hollow tube. To use it, you pull the file out of the handle and reinsert it into the handle in the opposite direction. Clear as mud right. Anyway, it does fit in the sheath quite nicely.
This thread got me to reconsider some things... Basically, I summed up what I might need beside the Wave and came to a conclusion that it would be - a separate screwdriver able to reach in deeper recesses and to be used together with the pliers; an awl; and a separate knife for very precise work.
A few minutes later side slots were stuffed with those; the knife is a Japanese-made OLFA with handle cut down to fit, with the cap placed on it it still makes a handful. The blade is a tiny surgical blade, a leftover from my study years.
Wow ... I feel retarted .. I just now see the side slots ... Never knew those were there ...
You guys have given me some good ideas for items to go in them ... Thanks!
