    Fenix P2D, in its holster, inside my left front pocket. The holster keeps it from banging up my iPhone, and also lets me move it to my belt if events warrant. When I'm flying or entering a courthouse, I carry an Fenix E01 instead, usually on a neck lanyard.

    Depends on the light
    My normal edc is fenix l0p around my neck, fenix P1ce ona mcgizmo clip on a gadgetring, that rides in my pocket on a short belt leash
    And a novatac 120P that rides either on my belt. Or in my pocket if I'm in the office

    I EDC a Solarforce L2m with a body extension and five mode LED.
    Last couple of days I've been carrying my light exclusively in a belt holster just because. After dark I normally carry it in my left front pocket with a lanyard hanging out of the pocket for quick access. This set up works VERY well for me.
    If it's daylight out, I tend to drop my light into a pants cargo pocket if the pair I am wearing has one.

    Since it's a small light, I carry it on the lanyard around my neck. (microstream)

    I typically EDC an ARC AAA on a titanium chain around my neck, a Photon II on my keychain, and a Fenix P1 on a mini clip either clipped to a belt loop and hanging in my front left pants pocket, or clipped to the top of a cargo pocket and hanging down inside. I seldom keep a knife, multitool, or flashlight with a regular clip clipped to the outside of a pocket, I work in and around cars a lot, and it is way too easy to inadvertantly scratch the paint on a car by brushing against it with an exposed clip on the outside of my pants. ANy additional lights I carry are usually inside a front pants or side cargo pocket.

    Like the others it depends on which light and what I'm wearing
    going to work, I put usually a Lummi in the coin pocket (right front) if I'm wearing khakis and have a SF 6p in my bag
    if I have jeans on then I usually have a SF e1b in the front right pocket clipped so it's mostly inside my pocket
    also I usually keep a nightcore d10 in one jacket pocket and a fenix (forgot the model, 2x123) in my other jacket pocket
    (I live in SF and usually need a light jacket year-round and no, I didn't mean that as a pun)

    I carry all three ways simultaneously. I work nights at a water plant so I tend to need flashlights a lot.
    Zebralight H60 clipped to the suspenders, Ultrastinger on the belt, and P4 modded LEDLenser V2 in the tool pouch.

    Nearly always clipped inside of the pocket. The rest of the time at the bottom of the pocket in the case of smaller lights.
