Great for the botanist/biologist as well as the handyperson,
This review is from: Victorinox Champion Plus Knife (Sports)
I like this particular Swiss army knife because it has a bit more than the standard knife. As a botanist and biology teacher, the hand lens has been used many a time to examine detail on a moss or beetle. The saw is great for camping, as well as collecting specimens. Additionally, you have all the basic handy gadgets you need on a knife: screwdrivers, scissors, nail file, tweezers, etc, as well as your basic, essential knife blade. I've had one of these for over 25 years, and have used it on five continents and for a hundred picnics. My only complaint is that as a lefty, food/muck can get lodged in the grooves of the handle when you use the blade (e.g. cheese, bread crumbs, etc). I use the toothpick to clean it up, but a hassle nonetheless.

But will it fit in your jeans?

Most botanists and other naturalist type pros that work out in "the field" do not wear jeans. They are not practical at all. The material does not move or stretch for hiking and if you get even slightly damp, the cotton becomes too heavy. A botanist especially would not wear jeans because of the constant kneeling on the ground and the ups and downs would be uncomfortable in jeans. Most nature bound people will wear a hiking / cargo pant. Plenty of pockets to fit the knife.
