When describing expedition equipment, the four most important words are: compact, durable, lightweight and, if possible, multi-purpose. These are the qualities that make the LEATHERMAN brand recognized as the world leader in compact multipurpose tools.
From modest beginnings, the popularity of Leatherman tools has grown rapidly. Proud to have Leatherman onboard as a sponsor of our iiNet 1000 Hour Day Expedition, 'Now We're Ready'!

In July 2005, two young Aussies Chris Bray and Clark Carter plunged inside the Arctic Circle to travel unsupported across Victoria Island, the world's ninth largest and largely unexplored island. After 58 days of hauling, paddling and dragging 250kgs of gear behind them in their home-made aluminium kayaks with fold-down wheels, they were only 1/3 the way across! It was such an incredible adventure though - including wolves, polar bears, artefacts, blizzards and unseen landscapes - that they vowed to return. After two years of prep, The iiNet 1000 Hour Day Expedition set of in 2008, and finished what they started.
