Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PaulN Good nailers, but cheaper when purchased separately
I’ve used other nailers in the past and they all have their differences. Ultimately as long as they work, you get used to the ones in hand. It’s nice to have two sizes in one kit, however they are cheaper when purchased separately. The kit is $20 more and the bag and measure tape aren’t worth it. The bag is overly small and barely fits both nailers. They only (tightly) fit when inserted in a specific way and order. The basic measure tape is 16 feet long and does have both inches and centimeters. However the temp-stop button on the bottom prevents it from standing vertically.
Both nailers are fairly light-weight and have nice rubber grip handles. The air connectors swivel in every direction and help reduce pull and stress on the air hose. There are attached caps on the air nozzles, but they’re not tight enough and pop off.
The 23-gauge micro pin nailer has a safety trigger and has a tool-less depth adjustment, while the 18-gauge brad nailer does not. The brad nailer has a multi fire mode feature that allows you to select from single fire or multi fire modes.
Overall, two decent nail guns with nice feel and features. They do work as intended and so far I had no problems with them. Husky is a good brand in my opinion and offers a 2-year warranty on these tools.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sdgiant Both nailer work well... Good for what it is.
OVERALL: Both nailers fired well. Loading, unloading was fine, brad nailer seemed smooth, pin nailer a little clunky. Included bag oddly small. Really not bad for light work.
NAIL RANGE: Both nailer take a nice range of nails. The pin nailer requires a manual adjustment, nothing complicated.
FEATURES: No issues burying the nails. Brad has single or multiple fire capacity, which is handy for doing light weight trim.
EXTRAS: Should probably just skip the tape measure. The bag is nice enough, but too small... very strange thing to mess up.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DIYinOH Everything about this feels like an afterthought
The kit includes a brad nailer, pin nailer, tape measure, and a carrying case. The tape is literally one of the worst dollar store tapes I have ever owned - the head is so inaccurate I wouldn't trust anything it measures.
The bag is a comical afterthought. It's sized completely inappropriately... there is no way to put the brad nailer in the bag and zip it up... no matter how many times you rotate the nailer and try to tetris it in there.
The brad nailer shoots straight and hard enough to fully bury the head... but the nail loader feels cheap and clunky. It doesn't slide well and the lock sticks frequently.
The pin nailer feels like it was built better than the brad nailer but it has a massive safety flaw... very very dangerous. The pin nailer does not have a spring tip and will fire as soon as you pull the trigger, even if the nailer is not up against any surfaces! Normally the head is spring loaded and has to be pressed tight against your work surface to shoot a nail. Not this pin nailer, it will fire little needles at anyone or anything that walks in front of it if you just pull the trigger. Very very dangerous.
All around, I'm pretty disappointed with this kit.
