    Trying to work up an EDC flashlight --- need for it to fit in a loop which a 2x AA Mini Maglite will just fit in --- the problem is the lack of a clip and I'd rather store the flashlight with the light end down.

    The ideal would be a simple 18mm cylinder (maybe with some light knurling) and a clip at the handle end. I would like for the design to be as plain / unornamented as possible.

    LED would be okay, so long as it starts up at minimum brightness.

    Alternately, suggestions on how I could fasten a Mini Maglite upside down in a sleeve but allow it to be extracted w/o too much fiddling?

    That it is! (The Inova X1 is pretty cool too!) looks as if I'd custom-designed it. On order next!

    Thanks again!

    The Four Sevens Mini M2A is exactly what I described and needed --- fits in the slot on my bag as if it were made to be there, and the eminently sensible functionality (switch on at low, then work up through medium to bright, then cycle through a second time to get strobe) is perfect for my needs.

    I give up though --- what are the O rings for?
