I just picked up a pair of Leatherman Raptor shears that came in today. I'd wanted or needed to get a decent pair of shears for the first aid kit in my truck and have been looking for a pair for some time now. I needed something that was well built and sharp that also had finger and thumb holes big enough to easily use them without having my thumb get stuck in them. I read a bunch of reviews on Amazon of different brands and none really stood out. I then looked at the ones from Leatherman and all the reviews were great on the with the bad reviews mainly being for the plastic molded holster that they come with and it either loosening up and the tool falling out, the screws loosening up and the holster breaking in two, or the screws loosening up and falling out and then the holster falling apart. The holster is molded and will hold the shears when folded or when in the open position and ready for use. It has a setup to be used on a belt or it is Molle compatible and it's adjustable to sit in different positions for pulling the tool out. I don't really have plans to carry it on my belt and will probably just stick them inside the first aid bag.
The tool is pretty good sized and it weighs in at 5.8oz. It's approx 5"Lx1 1/2"Wx3/4"D closed and then approx 8"Lx4"Wx3/4"D when open. It has the shears and then on one blade there is a ruler in cm/mm from 0-5/25. Under the bottom blade at the pivot is a notch for cutting rings. There is a blade on it with an oxygen tank tool and a strap cutter and on the end of the handle is a glass breaking tool and a lanyard hole. To fold them up there are two triangular shaped buttons, one on each side that you push and then the handles fold back. They appear to be well made and everything is nice and tight as I've come to expect from Leatherman products after being a long time user of them. I only got to try them on some cotton material and it went through that like a hot knife through butter. In the reviews people talk and show photos of cutting pennies into pieces with them and medical people talk about cutting leather and denim in real world uses.
They are a little pricey at $69.95, but should be well worth it if they do their job in a bad situation even once. They come with plastic handle covers in black, black/orange, tan, blue, red, and green. According to some reviewers if you contact Leatherman and provide your ID such as EMT, Fireman, Police, etc. they will sell you a pair at a big discount.
I mentioned having finger and thumb holes big enough to easily use and this has them. I have room to spare for my thumb and I can fit 3 fingers in the finger hole and then there is a notch in front of that for the 4th finger. I could probably use them with a pair of gloves on if they aren't too thick.
So far I'm happy with them although I haven't gotten to use them, but then again they are a tool that you really don't hope you need to use. I think they'll be great if and when needed.
