The overall design of each aspect of the system has a pretty wide appeal, in my opinion. So, yes- it isn’t for everyone.

I highly recommend the system.

Topeak Alien X Multi-tool: Quick Review

This tool would definitely cover a lot of needs on a long, self-supported type ride where you may need to do some repair work to keep you going. It’s got a few things in there that are pretty iffy, (the tire lever, the 8mm hex key) , but for the common repairs I think its a winner.
