    Just got a fenix pd30. So far it is the best flashlight I've ever had. It is brighter than my 3D mag light and waaaay smaller/lighter. I'm also loving the low light function. That will be great for when my cell phone drops out of my pocket in a dark movie theater and I need to look for it.

    4Sevens 123(2) warm tint Tac Quark in pocket. Actually surprised I am not carrying the single warm 123 standard on my belt instead. Really thinking hard about getting a new 4Sevens AAA to carry in my pocket sheath along with my Little Creek.

    A sandwich of 2 1.4 drivers putting 2.8 into an SST-50 and a smooth reflector. 3.6-6V and a color temp of 5700K, one regulated mode: MAX!
    After a minute it settles down into the 650's because of heat and then stabalizes. Runtime isn't too long but if you need max illumination NOW in a small size, it wins.

    Either a Maratac AAA or a Quark AA. Occasionally I'll still grab the River Rock AA.

    I've been EDC'in a River Rock 1Watt tactical light that uses a single AA for the past two years. I got it at target for about 22 bucks, amazing value. I'm replacing it with the new Fenix PD20 2010 version that comes with a pocket clip.

    Most of the time I've got a Life Gear 1XAA stuck in my back pocket, hanging from a clip I stole off of one of the aluminum Rayovac lights. Not fancy, but it's a solid little light.

    On my keys is an Inova Microlight I've modded. It now has a brighter white LED, and an O-ring around the switch that keeps it from coming on in my pocket. Might eventually replace it with a Photon Freedom or X-Light.

    I've heard about Brite Strike and Insight before. How do you like them?

    Been carrying this since March of this year and have found it to be the handiest, and easiest to carry light I've ever had. I'm talking about the Leatherman Serac2. It rides clipped in my shirt pocket day in and day out. If I don't have a shirt pocket, very rare, it gets clipped to the front of my collar where it rides wo a hitch.

    I did just get a new light that I'll carry now and then, if I need more light than the 35 lumens that the Serac has, and that is a Nitecore EX10.
