Just an FYI for the first mentioned kit. I got mine last week, I always 'test' my road side tools at the house just to see how it goes.
My observation for the kit I received, I was trying to loosen a stubborn brake caliper mount bolt (12mm hex head, 8mm threads on one of my training bikes, an Eliminator 125). and the 1/4 drive ratchet stripped out. Just something to be aware of if you might be trying to use this kit roadside, in the dark, raining and a stubborn fastener.
Also, the spinner screwdriver handle spun on itself under high hand torque, not a big deal, it seems like the driver is just a 1/4 drive extension they injection molded the handle around.

I'm awaiting feedback their warranty process.

Yeah, I would rather assemble a kit with decent quality tools, rather than a set from Amazon. The last thing I want along the side of the road, it to strip a fastener by using a poorly fitting socket, or have a tool break.

I won’t buy this kit simply because I’m avoiding buying anything on Amazon because they have quit putting “country of origin “ in their product adds. I want to avoid China products. I’ll gladly pay double/ triple whatever.
PS. I’m not a racist, right wing nut etc etc

That's getting so hard to do now . I've found info on country of origin by reading reviews on Amazon , which folks should always do anyway .

Testing is always a good idea. And I’ve no skin in this game. A cheap kit to keep in my bag when I need to pull body panels and whatnot. I don’t want to ride around with my expensive tools. For real work, I’d grab my real tools. If these fail and I’m up a creek, I’ll call a wrecker.

True, for body panels and probably 95% of what you may need to do roadside, this is handy. I liked it is metric, has the metric allens and screwdriver bits all in the same kit.
