This little gem is for a super loyal Skinth User who has changed the way he digs in his tool chest for his daily plumbing job. His current Skinth XL in Coyote Brown has seen the most wear and tear we’ve seen a Skinth go through, putting it through its paces and still asking for more.

At the core of his kit is a Victorinox Swiss Spirit Mutlittool, which in the past we touted as being one of the most perfect multitools in production, with the ratchet and bit kit set. In addition, he carries a TON of stuff, somewhere in the ballpark of 30 items in his Skinth XL. So when he gave us a little feedback on what he was griping with his near perfect Skinth XL, we stepped up to answer the call.
We present this week’s Sunday Prototype, the Skinth SAKplumber MKII.
One of his main concerns was the usage of the side tube pockets. Borrowing a trick from our Skinth TrailBlazer, we boxed out the bottom to increase the carrying capacity substantially as well as increase the diameter of the tube by .25″. It may not seem like a lot but it’s the difference between carrying a very expensive flashlight or not. We also took the time to add some pen loops on the front so he can carry a second pen light/sharpie/micro light sabre/whatever.
Inside, a standard option PentaPocket divides the front area for smaller bit extenders, pry tools, ratchets and other smaller tubular items. Of course, a spot for his Spirit.
The side tubes are now a full 3.5″ long with a flap to have anything under 5″ fit inside of it. Here a 4 Layer Swiss Army Knife (Deluxe Tinker) easily hides inside.
We also took the time to stiffen the main body flap with a core of nylon webbing hidden inside the panel, increasing it’s weight bearing potential and stability WHILE maintaining it’s over all Coyote Brown appearance. SAKplumber wears a specific training belt that has Velcro loop on the inner side so a MOLLE webbing of hook allows for the Skinth to stay put while he is upside down wrenching down on a pipe.
We hope that he’ll enjoy this bad boy and his continued support lead us to a great solution for his problems!
