    A Streamlight Nano on my keychain, Thrunite Ti in my pocket and a Surefire in my backpack...makes three! :) The Thrunite is the one that gets used almost all the time though

    Limiting it strictly to what is on my body and EDC backpack

    Old Photon - Keychain
    Inova X1 - Right Ankle
    5.11 Plx - Clipped to EDC bag (I want to replace it)
    Sabre2 - Inside EDC Backpack (will soon be replaced)

    Plus other light sources

    UVMatlite Mini - Acts as a velcro patch on outside of EDC Backpack
    4x Chem lights - Inside EDC backpack

    If you can count them, there are 3 flashlights, 2 headlamps, 7 chem lights, 3 flares, ENO Twilights and a UV Glowstick in my car.

    Two.
    Olight S15 Ti baton and Quantum D2.
    Really wish it could just be one, but I have found both to be quite useful.

    Generally one. Around the house it's a Logan med, high CRI. Out, D25C Ti Nichia 219. Of course there are other lights close at hand, so I find one on my person to be sufficient.

    I might be carrying the least... a quantum dd on my keychain. That's it. Not to incur the wrath of the forums, bit I barely use my flashlight, and the quantum covers all ny needs. If I'm heading out at night I might grab my l3 illumination l10, but that's only if I know in going to be hiking or something. Otherwise,I just rely on my little keychain light, and I've never regretted it yet.

    At the very least, a McGizmo LS20.3 and a titanium 4Sevens AA modified with a neutral XM-L2 L10 driver.
    If my backpack is with me (almost always) : Zebralights H52w/H502w/SC52w along with a CoolFall Spy 007T.

    What does the "T" stand for in "CoolFall Spy 007T"?

    Does anyone else find this ironic? You carry one of the most advanced flashlights on the market and one of the sorriest flashlights on the market!

    The "T" stands for Turbohead.
    I had one of CPF's titanium masters make the custom head for it a few years back.
    The new head resembles an Aleph Pr-T and uses an McR27 short reflector with a neutral XP-G2 behind it for some really good throw.

    You know, a spy007 is something I'm game for buying. Just waiting for my wallet to stop gasping for breath.:D

    Seriously??

    I carry 1 if I have my pocket organizer with me. Added a small one to my keychain, but will probably take it off as I hate large keychains with all manner of cr@p hanging off it (car key + house key is all I need).

    That said, I have a couple in the car, and several around the house. So I am covered should I ever really need one. I keep one in my laptop bag and used to travel 75k miles by air each year. I used the light in my bag exactly once in 10+ years.

    Yes the maglite was picked up to get some change from a gas store and i thought its cool but a recent cpf discovery coupled with tax return got myself a tri-v2. I know i should upgrade to a better keychain light like quantum d2 and thats whT i am going to get along with a nitecore srt3

    I'm resurrecting this thread lol:

    These days, I EDC five lights, on-person, while not at work. While at work, I on-person carry one, clipped to my front, left pocket (an EagleTac P20C2 MkII - the second from the right, in the picture, below); and the others go in a backpack; but that's always within easy reach.

    [​IMG]
    Left to Right:
    1. Thrunite T10 (cool white) - 14500 battery
    2. ThruNite T10 2014 Edition (neutral white ) - 14500 battery
    3. Nitecore EA11 - 14500 EMR battery
    4. EagleTac P20C2 MkII
    5. SolarForce L2P with Sportac triple Nichia 219 2-mode P-60 drop-in
    I'll add to, or swap out some of these, depending on my needs for the day/evening.

    You can never have too many lights :D

    Generally only two. Main is a Fenix PD35 in a front pocket. Then there is a Lighthound fauxton on the keychain clipped to a beltloop.

    I'm in the five plus category, totally overkill,...what can I say, it's addiction just like the knives, flasks and bags etc. Lol
