To be honest, this forum has changed my life and my wallet thickness (i.e., less money = more gear). Truth be told, I was inspired by posts and images here in this forum and got hooked; a great thing! Since my new beginning, I now "finally" carry a knife and small light every day. While many of you might be thinking I'm nuts - this is true. It took a lot of getting used too becase I simply hated stuff in my pockets (read: pocket clips are the bomb.com)! I came to EDC Forums for pack information and got what I was looking for and way more. So these days I carry a Streamlight MicroStream. I'm still amazed on "how often" this light gets used. I don't look for reasons to fire it up but there are many. I don't used it for my job either and know a lot of you need a good dependable light based on your vocation. The MicroSteam was the choice I made because I wanted something small, bright (35 lumens), runs on a readily available battery size (1x "AAA"), and very affordable. I only wish there were other color choices but that's not a deal closer - I'd buy another today if needed. The clip on this little beauty has bailed me out of needing a head-lamp since I was able to clip the light to my baseball type hat visor. Any others out there love theirs?
