My biggest concern when I bought this was that the bit holder would fall off. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it is not only held on by magnets, but also by pegs, which keep it from sliding. I was also concerned that the bits would fall out. I don't think this will happen; they are pretty snug (and a little hard to remove sometimes). It's a little smaller than I expected, which is good, because I think it's about perfect for EDC. The design is amazing, but the construction isn't quite. It feels like it was assembled a bit cheaply. At its price point though, that's not so bad. One slightly disappointing thing about it is that the blade has no locking mechanism. The bits don't always slide all the way into the socket, which makes the magnet designed to hold them in ineffective. It's still usable, but could be better. Other than that, it's an amazing tool. The LED is a little brighter than I expected (but still not amazing). I used the wrench the first day I got it. I intend to make this part of my EDC.
