Anyone had experience with the Cruz Tool Kit for the GS?

I know this thread is about the Adventure Designs kit, but Cruz Tools have a GS specific kit that includes only the sizes required, including a 22mm front axle tool...

Anyone had any experience with it?

Just did a quick comparison...

Adventure Design
L9.5" W3.5" D3.5"
Weight 4lb 11oz
Price $250

Cruz Tools
L 9" W3.25" D3.25"
Weight 3lb 8oz
Price $120

AD kit includes spark plug/oil filler combo tool and oil filter tool, while the CT does not. Bot include a front axle tool.

I have most of the tools I need at home, and put the required sizes into two small pouches, but I don't think it would be as compact or manageable as a purpose designed "travel kit". Plus, I'd rather leave the travel kit in tact and use the other tools at home, so there's no risk of losing something or leaving it out, only to discover it's not there when you really need it.

Cheers.
