Thanks for the careful OR. Edits follow, and are few. However, one
significant omission is a description of the environments in which you
have used the Micra. It's neither here under a separate heading nor is
it interpolated into the review proper. Please fix this, correct where
indicated, and upload to

I reach for the Micra when going on winter

### EDIT: God, I hate amateur podiatry! Seriously, I assume you mean
for adjusting crampons and fixing snowshoes (what I use my heavier
Leatherman for)? You might want to clarify this before they get you
for practicing medicine without a license. <g> Though, on reading
further, maybe you do mean tootsies (shudder).
> I would not purchase it in any of the additional colors, however, as

### EDIT: This last sentence should be dropped. It is editorializing.
