Cons: None
Well when it comes to knives & multi-tools, (GERBER) is TOP OF THE LINE CRAFTSMANSHIP.... I am 26 yrs old, I was brought up using GERBER Knives, Tools, Etc... I once had a (LeatherMan) Multi-Tool, Never had any trouble whatsoever, I just prefer using (GERBER) Name Brand Equip... To me, GERBER = Strong,Durable,Tough,UnBreakable,Long-Lasting,Made in the U.S.A.... The New Gerber Multi-Tool I Bought is a SUPERB All in 1 MASTERPIECE!!!

Great for the money
During her weekly food shopping trip to "Wally-World" [Wal-Mart] my now ex-girlfriend called to tell me she got me a surprise and not to peek in the bags as I helped her unload from the truck to the kitchen. Okay, I like surprises,so sure. Turns out she picked up a few things for me to take on my then 6th Deployment,one of those things being a Gerber "Suspension" Multi-Tool. I had been issued everything from Gerber to leatherman in past excursions,and knew I was getting issued another-again,to add to my collection, but I didnt tell her,and she asked me if I was happy,Did I like it,you guys know the routine,and asked if I was going to carry it while deployed,to which I said "yes",not intending to carry more than a day or so to get it dirty and broken in. I used it and played with it that night,and until I left,brought it with me as I said I would,and tho issued a MT, I continued to use the Gerber Suspension...I honestly liked it. I wasn't just saying it to make her feel good, it is a great multi-tool! First,the ability to use some compressed air to blow dirt & crap out of it was a nice deal. Then,besides the pliers and cutters,the tool I used most often was the-believe it or not-scissors! And these scissors are SHARP! Cut paracord,100MOH tape,uniform material,1000as well as 500 dennier nylon with no problem,everything about this little "underdog" turned out to be top-notch,and I still carry it in my EDC pack today. The only reason I did not give this a 5 outta 5, is three (3) reasons: (A):Because aside from the needlenose/pliers on a multi-tool, the 2 tools I need/want most is scissors and a wood/metal file-this doesn't have a file. I,99.99% of the time am already carrying a pocket knife of some sort,and it is always 'plain-edge', so I feel Gerber could do away with 1 of the 2 blades,OR, use 1 blade but have it be 1/4-1/2 serrated...a "Combo Edge" type blade, thus freeing up space for the file. Also, the can opener could have a small/mini straight-slot screwdriver on the tip as several other brands/models do,thus freeing up space some more by getting rid of a whole space taken up by just a small straight-slot screwdriver,and allowing for perhaps a hacksaw blade,IDK. (B):Mine when she got it for me, did not come with a sheath. Fortunately I had one from another multi-tool and it fit perfectly! And, finally... (C):The lock for the blades/tools is {EDIT} For me tho, this is no big deal,a completely minor issue. Some may,however,find this a hard pill to swallow, so you might wanna check one out, and fingerbang it b4 buying, but for $15.00, I mean, really...ya' know? Anyhow, overall, for the money you pay- in comparison to $50+ up to $125+ dollars, this little guy is great, and hols its own against the more expensive,"Name Brand" multi-tools. In the 4 or so years I have had it now, never once a issue or a problem,and as I said earlier in the write up, I carry it every day in my pack. This is perhaps one of the few things Wal-Mart has that is worth a {EDIT}. This really is a great Multi-Tool,and I will be buying another to give to a least thats what I am telling myself. I believe,if I am truthful with myself,that it will reside in the glove compartment of my truck,JIC I dont bring mine one day-which HAS happened,and I felt naked w/o it! (I have tried to give as in-depth a look at this as possible-I hope it helps someone)
