How are you carrying those lights that are just a little too big for pocket carry?

    I tried back pocket carry for an 18650 light, but it did not work for me. For a light that is unable to be carried in the pocket, it would probably go in a pack for me, or in a jacket in winter when days are much shorter.

    I do not currently carry any large lights, as I have not gotten into the habit of keeping my EDC Pack with me as much as I'd like.

    My 18650 Olight is a little too big for pants pocket carry, but I do it if necessary. However, it rides nicely clipped into a cargo pocket. Otherwise, it's in my backpack.

    Years ago, I really liked carrying my 2xaa Maglight incandescent and original Leatherman in a Nite Ize belt sheath. It worked great on the weekends, but was too much at other times.

    Hmmm...well I keep a small light on my keychain that is actually pretty nice, but I have a bigger one on my EDC bag that is always pretty close by.

    Ripoffs holsters attached to belt or in jacket pocket, or Skinth Mondo Shield worn on belt.

    My 1x18650 Klarus XT2C is actually just small enough for pocket carry, but I prefer to carry it in my bag with almost everything else. I'm a small-sized guy, so I'm quite limited in what I can carry in my pockets.

    Not quite an answer to your question wrt too large for pocket carry, but nevertheless...

    I have a tiny Nitecore EC11 (with a high capacity IMR 18350) used on my mountain bike helmet, and also on the peak of my 5.11 cap. I am the sentinel of the barbeque. It has been so effective and performed so well, I have just ordered a couple more.

    I wear my Nitecore SRT7 in a belt mount HSGI MP7 mag pouch. Yes it's unsecured but short of going on the ground and really tumbling it's secure for my day to day movements.
