I've been lurking for awhile and felt it was time to say hi. My name's Mike and I'm from Villa Park, about 18 miles west of downtown Chicago. I always called my stuff pocketgear and probably always will. A couple months ago I was looking at the XL-100 on Maglite's website and clicked on a Youtube link. After it was over I saw the related videos and saw that a lot of them mentioned E.D.C., so I looked at those. I knew that I couldn't have been alone out here but with the way that most people are prepared for all of the little things that come up in life it seems like it most of the time! More posts and pictures will be on the way.
