    I have been putting together a compact tool kit lately and my Picquic was way too big to carry. I searched for a functional but compact insert bit holder and fo7nd the Wera 813 (magnetic version, not the pull-to-release version). I've used it a bit with standard (single sided) bits when I happened on this DeWalt full-hex bit that doesn't reduce at all over the whole length. Because the hex doesn't reduce it can insert both ways into the Wera. It's a little thing but when space is at a premium it's really nice!

    The bit locks in just as tight as anything else and seems to actually be of higher quality than a standard DeWalt bit. The fit is great on screws and though the black coating wears the steel is very durable.

    Glad you found something with a 'smaller footprint' for your needs. Wera is a great euro-brand tool, and also one, of exceptional quality. Its amazing, how you can always cobble something together, to improve the over-all functionality of an item.

    Looks like a great little driver.

    Personally I carry a PB Swiss Insider. A little bigger, but also excellent quality and function.

    I've got the larger KK20 with the bits in the handle and a really sturdy pouch. I've used this almost daily for nearly three years and it is superb. Initially I was worried that it would stand hard use but the bits etc are still like new.
    It's not the cheapest but I am very impressed with the quality. 10/10

    Not bad... I recently added the Wera 051024 Kraftform Kompakt 25 Pouch Set in the Red Bull colors to my grab bag. The Only reason is due to Leatherman not manufacturing a Half Bit in the Security Bits. So the Wera handle now has my security bits in it. Works. But I still prefer the half bits and bit extender on the Leatherman.

    FYI- that driver is almost the same exact size. This one just makes better use of the space at hand. Plus you get an extendable head on it.
