Default Leatherman - Removable Bit Driver?

Does anyone have experience with Leatherman's Removable Bit Driver?

https://www.leatherman.com/removable...river-126.html


This guys rambles a lot, so you can advance to 3:20 to where he starts talking about the bit driver:

I'm curious about this accessory, as well as the Bit Driver Extender, for using standard 1/4" bits. I see these mentioned a lot, but never see anyone comment on how much torque they can take before you risk breaking the driver or the multitool.

I do some backcountry skiing, so a tool with some assorted bits to repair or adjust boots and bindings would be nice.

Thanks!

My Wave has extra bits. I ground the sides of a china 1/4" hex bit holder down to fit in the Wave bit holder. I carry 4,5,6 mm Apex brand bits (in the white tube) to fit my leg and they also work on my bicycle.

I cut notches in the plastic bit carrier and wrapped in dental floss for the needle in the webbing. Then I wrapped electrical tape length wise on the carriers.

Not show is my new 6" carbide jaw needle driver that fits between the case and the belt loop.

When I build the new case I'll be adding one of my ferro rods, a 4" crescent wrench, a small pry bar and perhaps a few other items.

I carry a Surge in a Skinth Solutions XL on my hip. I have the 40 bit set and extension along with a couple of drivers. Great tools! Yes, my full sized tools are best but I can't carry them everywhere. I can my Surge!
The bit sets "adds" functionality to the multitool.
