I think when it comes to conveniently resolving most issues you can’t beat an EDC Light tool from OneUp. So quick and easy and faff free to use. For lots of folks I know that’s what they have and if something else comes out they walk. If you’re on a trip or a ride and your only tool is any bits-in/bits-out setup that would get annoying for minor adjustments if any come up.  But if you legitimately want to be able to fix anything that comes up there’s not a nicer to use, more compact, or better equipped system. In that way I think the relative convenience is in whether you’re riding or walking out. Most stuff, said EDC Light is going to have the job done before I get the 8-Bit out of my pack, but it would also have left me (or fiends) walking on more than one occasion, so it’s nice to have both. Case in point, if I need to straighten my stem after a crash I just reach for my stashed 5mm. But yesterday I came across something I’d never seen before in the shop or on the trail, SRAM master cylinder bladder-cover bolts that had backed out, and in my pack I had a tool to fix that.
