Leatherman Wave
Leatherman Wave

An updated classic version of their original multitool. There's a reason that Leatherman is still considered the best - and this tool is it. Easy opening knife, pliers, and a collection a versatile tools. All in stainless steel with a 25 year limited warranty. This is small enough to carry in your pocket instead of in a sheath, and mine lives in my messenger bag that I proudly drag around with me (while insisting it's not a man purse.)

Gerber First Responder Knife
Gerber First Responder Knife

Seatbelt cutter, window punch, 02 Bottle Valve, and a serrated blade with a safety tip. It's easy to open with firefighting gloves. This is the ultimate first responder knife. It's a little bulky, and it's a little big. But, the blunt tip is really nice and being able to open it while wearing gloves is fantastic. I keep one with me on ski patrol, and I've used if for everything from cutting cord, to cutting small limbs on trees that were overhanging patients, to scraping ice off of snowmobiles. It's a tough knife that will be a trusty partner.

Kindle Paperwhite
Kindle Paperwhite

A compact e-reader book with incredible battery life and a screen that works day or night. Break up down time with a book! These work incredibly well in low light situations, and do a great job of not disrupting your sleep cycle. Unlike reading on an iPad or phone, these don't throw off lots of blue light. They don't disrupt your sleep cycles, and it's the only e-reader that I can read at night with the lights off and cast a bright blue light on the rest of the room.

Paramedic Work Boot
Paramedic Work Boot

Quick to put on with some great features! This is a super comfortable boot with great support and cushioning. The Neoprene collar fits snuggly and will keep out dust, dirt, and debris. These won't take a high shine, but at the same time, they've aged well. They don't scuff too easily, and so even with heavy use they still look good. You've got enough to worry about - now you'll never worry about your feet again.
