I am looking for two multi tools / sizes:

1) one which lives in tool box etc, and is useful around house little jobs or away from the house/ in vehicle

2) a back packing / hunting / everyday carry coat pocket multi tool.

I have done some research: Leatherman appears to be the leader in this field, however, SOG and various Swiss Army / Victornix (spelling?) are well though of.

I definitely want a decent scissors tool included and locking knife blade. Locking tools would be good too.
Decent scissors would be good for first aid type applications - cutting roll of sticking plaster bandages.

What is IMO &E?

Do not recognise the abbreviation.

Internet reviews for hikers and backpackers give Leatherman Wave plus, wingman some other leather man products plus SOG products and the venerable Swiss Army knife.

I’ve had the original PST, supertool, Sidekick, Wave, and Micra.

Tried Gerber and don’t like it.

(Almost) always have a wave on my belt and a micra in my front pocket.

I have had a leather man Wave for I think for 25 years. Just the right size and features for me.

I found my Leatherman Charge at a pawnshop for $40, so no experience with other models, except for a Gerber, which wasn't nearly as robust.

lately ive carried the free p2.

Also like the rebar.

Wave is nice, but bulkier IMO.

Leatherman ARC looks pretty darn nice. I think I'll get one.

I was a small Gerber distributor and we sold a lot of their "multipliers" and liked them. However I think the Leatherman Wave is the better all around. I will say that the Gerbers have some great scissors though.
