    For what its worth, my company paid for me to go. Arrived late last night. Doing company appointments today but did get a chance to see a few things that looked interesting. No pics as my cell went dead. SOG has a number of new tools that are in a pen format. Played with one. Wasn't that impressed. Felt it was heavy for a pen and the tool was a bit difficult to fold back in. Interesting idea as it was approx. 5/8" square and 6-1/2" long. Armytek was showing a prototype rechargable keychain light. Smaller than the Nitecore Tube, 3 brightness levels, right angle led. Anticipated shipping April approx. $15.

    Been following the youtuber coverage.

    Looks like Leatherman has some knife spin offs based on the skeletool and juice series.

    I always wanted to go, but can't really justify the cost. I do however watch YouTube more during SHOT than any other time of the year.

    Streamlight has a key shaped light that was cool, a set of leds are in the blade with the micro led port battery and switch in the head. Approx 35 lumens

    Finally got home and a little rest.
    Nextorch has a couple of flashlights that look interesting. Not the brightest but capable of using AAA, AA, CR123A, 10440, 14500 and 16340 batteries , 600 lumen max, stainless steel bezels with ceramic inserts for window breaking, rotary/push button tail caps, 6P size. The second is a keychain rechargeable ipx4 water resistant, 60 lumen, micro usb,with a built in laser pointer. They also had a inexpensive liner lock that had a slide out clip for deep carry.
    For edc, I think Klecker has a interesting idea with their Stowaway tool line. Limited phone cases but the tools are also designed to be used in a number of key carriers like Keybar, Smartkey as well as quick links and carabiners. 12 different tools have been released with more planned. Think multi tool Lego or customized SAK. Buy the tools and carrier you want and change out as desired
