    I wear jeans and a work shirt for work.

    An EagleTac P10C2 rides bezel down next to my wallet in RR.
    A Fenix P2D CE Q5 is in holster right in front of my cell on my right side.
    Lumapower ConneXion is clipped in my left shirt pocket on the other side of the button from my other stuff.
    And Fenix LOD CE Q4 is clipped on my Key Blob which hangs between RFP and fly on a belt loop.

    If no other light makes the journey the P2D is a constant!!!

    I use a combination of most of the mentioned methods.

    • Nitecore D10 in a belt pouch from my DX X.1. It has a d-ring so I attach a carabiner to it and loop it through the front loop on my shorts/pants
    • Arc-P AAA is clipped onto my keychain
    • My Ra Clicky 140C is holstered on my belt (alongside my LM Blast ;) )
    • My franken light "3P" (Solarforce L2M body, 6P bezel, Malkoff M30, G2 tail, RCR123A) is carried in front right pocket.

    Yes, despite being a CPF member, I carry only four lights. But they do a LOT. :)

    I carry my Fenix L1D in my pocket, in a home made slip, to protect the lens.

    Oh yeah!

    Besides the four I mentioned there is a Pierce M10 with a Seoul LED in it and flood optic. It rides at the bottom of RFP.

    GREAT for work!

    There are 8 or 9 lights in my truck too.....

    I carry my Nitecore EX10 clipped on the pocket or belt (depends on the pants :) ) or in a bag compartment. And I always have Streamlight Nano Light on my keychain.

    Belt holster for me.
    My current EDC is a Ti EX10 and it rides in a homemade leather holester in my belt.

    I have always preferd a holster on my right side to carry my lights. I tend to favor the Ripoff's brang of holsters and have used them for all of my lights. Starting with my first led, the inova x5. Then the Arc LSL, HDS EDC-45, Fenix P2D, P20D, and now the Nitecore EX10.

    If it's small (ex L0D), the little watch/change pocket on jeans.
    Bigger (ex 1xAA size), whichever pocket doesn't have my keys in it, or a cargo pocket if available
    If I'm camping or something, holster all the way.

    I have a Novatac 120P (with clip removed) in my right front pocket along with a Swiss Champ SAK (the big one). I always wear Wrangler jeans because their pockets are really strong and can hold up to the weight of both in the same pocket. As a backup, I also keep a yellow Photon Freedom around my neck as a necklace, even when I sleep. When I have my "man-purse", a Maxpedition Fatboy Versapack, I keep a Fenix TK11 in it and 2 spare CR123 batteries. If I am going into the woods or on a trip, I add a Fenix LOD AAA flashlight to my key chain. Can you tell I like flashlights?!

    I carry my fenix LD10 in my right front pocket, in the little bag that came with my benchmade bm 960. the draw string hangs out of my pocket next to the clip on my knife so it's easy to pull out. the light shines out the front of the bag so it doesn't have to come out to be used. it makes it harder to rotate the front to switch modes but prevents it from getting scratched and makes it easyier to get out of my pocket.

    I also carry an E01 on my keys, which results in it getting all scratched up.

    I carry my Nitecore EX10 or D10 clipped to my front left pocket. I usually only carry one of my Surefire's if I'm wearing cargo pants, which if I do I slip it in the side pocket.
