Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roadrunner Must have for any tool set
I had been in need of a complete hex wrench set for a long time. This set filled that need nicely. I went ahead and got the SAE set too which means my hex wrench needs should be met. Hex wrenches are one of those tools that most people need sporadically but when you need one and don’t have the right one, it can be a real setback. With this set, that shouldn’t be a problem.
Good features of this set:
1. The steel they are constructed out of seems very solid.
2. They come in a handy little holder that has markings for the size so it makes it easy to tell which one you’re grabbing.
3. The plastic holder seems to retain the wrenches well but not so tight they are hard to get out.
4. They come with a lifetime warranty.
5. The price-point makes this a great set to buy for yourself or for someone as a gift.
Points of concern:
1. They are fairly short (about 4” down to 2” long) which means that they might not give enough leverage if something has to be tightened a lot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BikerDan Great Tools. Great Value.
I use these for bicycle maintenance. So far, I've only used the 4mm and 5mm wrenches, but they work well. The steel is hard enough that I don't detect any torsional flex from the wrenches when I'm tightening cap screws with them.
Plastic carrier holds the wrenches snugly and keeps them from wandering around my toolbox.
For the price, and the lifetime guarantee, you can't beat this wrench set!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by skaizun Good heft, warranty, and price
The sturdy, hefty (just over 6 oz), package holds ten hex wrenches. The package was difficult to open, but, a razor blade did the job. The wrenches are snugly held within the gray holder, and all, but the largest (leftmost) wrench, need the ones to their left to be turned one way or the other in order to be pulled from the holder; not very user-friendly, but, acceptable. I used one of the smaller ones in a door set hex nut, and it worked. With a lifetime warranty and relatively low price, it is a good bargain.

It JUST SO HAPPENS, I was looking for both Metric and standard Hex/Allen wrenches when this showed up. I have Allen wrench, but they are from the "days of my father" and kept in a "zip lock bag" along with all of the other single free wrenches you get when you buy certain products. I wanted something to keep them "neat" and can be used as a single wrench. I do have TWO "Handle type" allen wrench sets my son gave me one holiday, but they are NOT ALWAYS useful in tight situations.
Ordering on line, it was hard tell if these came in a holder, a case or just loose. They come with a very nice heavy plastic holder that keeps them neat and in order.
I HIGHLY Recommend if you are in the market for Hex Wrenches...
Oh.... And then have a lifetime warranty as well !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jstine35 Handy Metric Set
My review for this set is similar to the review that I left for the standard set. It is very handy and is compact. It is nice to have all of the sizes in one place, at my fingertips. It looks as though it is meant to lay in the drawer of a toolbox. It would be nice if it came in a type of tabletop stand so that they could be out and ready for use. I am thinking about attaching a strong magnet to the back of the holder and then mounting it to a strip of metal. At least then I would be able to have them out and available when I need them. I do really like having a set with metric measurements as well as standard measurements.

Like the S.A.E. hex set set i just got, this is a very handy and versatile set. I have the all in one folding sets that have all of the wrenches contained in one unit, but sometimes you need a single wrench that you can move about and maneuver independently. This set is quite handy, and I have already used them when I helped my son work on his foreign car in my shop. i would not hesitate to recommend this set to anyone who is looking for a good hex set.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ConcernedCustomer Fantastic! Just what I need
This is just what I need. I had a set in SAE, this set will cover all the sizes. The set comes in 10 pieces, size ranging from 1.5 mm to 7 mm. The arms are slightly shorter, good for many tight spots during turn. After all, the largest measurement is 7mm, you don't need a long arm for leverage. The pieces come with a plastic holder with all the measurement clearly labeled. The metric measurement definitely helps to offset a slight deviation from the standard sizes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toyboy Metric Hex Key Set To The Rescue!
I have about 3-4 sets of the SAE hex keys, but had none of the metric. I just purchased a product that required "some" assembly...and of course in metric. I picked these up, along with a set of the Long Arm Keys. I will say they seem well made, fit well, and the price is outstanding. Excellent buy from my local HD.
