That Coast multi-tool has a good combination of tools. I've looked at many of the smaller plier and scissor-based tools and it always comes down to pliers or scissors unless you graduate to a larger and much heavier tool. My only misgiving with the Coast tools is that many are made in China with inferior steel. If you are only using them occasionally, it really wouldn't make much difference, but if you are in a situation where you need high performance, the steel won't take the stress or hold it's edge as well as Leatherman, Gerber or Victorinox tools will.
My solution to the pliers-or-scissors problem has been to go with a plier-based tool and add a pair of light scissors like the Fiskar's #4 or #5. You end up with a pair of very good scissors--- far better and easier to use than any offered on a multi-tool.
All said and done, pliers aren't all that useful in the woods unless you are using something with a motor or a bike. I use a Victorinox Classic on my survival lanyard and I've found the scissors on the Classic to take care of small repairs and grooming. I see the Leatherman Micra as pretty much equal to the Classic. Moving up in weight and features, the Wenger Handyman has a saw and scissors as well as a decent knife, can opener, and awl. Heavier yet are the Victorinox Trekker and Outrider models. These 111mm frame knives are more useful survival tools with 3.5" locking knife blade, saw, can opener, etc, and the Outrider adds a pair of scissors.
Tools and knives are an UL challenge for me. I'm not one to head out with something like a single edge razor blade or a Classic as my only tool. I prefer to have at least a folding knife in the 3.5" range. I think a fixed blade knife in the 4" range is optimal. Keep in mind that I hike solo much of the time.
