-PackWrench 3-Way Wrench review in 4-Wheel ATV Action, February 2002

"CruzTOOLS is one of those companies run by a total wrench-head, so it's no surprise to see slick tools in its catalog. We've been using the company's PowerDrive Sliding T-Sockets for a while now and we've begun to wonder why this set hasn't been in the box all along...Another tool in CruzTOOLS catalog that's well suited for stashing in your bike's tool kit is the PackWrench...Barely larger than the palm of your hand, this tool should be in your traveling kit. Heck, at $14.95, buy two and keep one in the shop."

-T-Socket review in Motocross Action, September 2001

"These bad boys from the fellas at Cruz Tools are extra cool. Why? The handles aren't welded onto the socket shaft, and as a result, they can be slid to either side for extra leverage. These things rule!"
-T-Socket Product feature in Transworld Motocross, September 2001

"The tool pouches, made of 1000 denier Cordura Plus with self-repairing zippers, are the best I've seen...I found the CruzMetrix kit to be a well thought-out product, an essential accessory for most European and Japanese makes and models of motorcycles..."

-Product review in Snowmobiling On The Trail, March 2000

-Product review of DirtMetrix in Motorcycle Consumer News, July 1999

-Product review in Snowmobiling On The Trail, March 1999

"If I've yammered on, it's because the difference between the ordinary tool kit and this one merits it...It blows the competition into the weeds. Buy one."
-Product review in Motorcycle Times, May/June 1998

"So I popped the CruzTOOLS out, unbolted the seat and plugged the wiring harness back in...But without the tools, I would have been stuck. My toolkit is my friend."
-Editorial in Hot Bike, March 1998

"Upon first blush, the CruzMetrix kit is a complete, top-grade assembly of implements housed in a sturdy, zip-up Cordura case...Hell, we loved the set, or hadn't you gathered?"
-Product test in MotorCyclist, March 1998

"The four open-end wrenches are by Armstrong and appear to be the same or better quality chromed steel than a professional mechanic would buy at so-much-a-week from his Mac Tool man...Top quality screwdriver...hex wrenches obviously superior to the allen sets you see at most parts houses. All in all, I must admit that I was impressed with the CruzMetrix kit. Even after I saw that it carries a suggested retail price of $119.95."
-Product Review in Motorcycle Performance, October 1997

"Overall, the quality of the tools and the completeness of the CruzMetrix kit, make it an ideal item to put in your saddlebag for your next long trip"
