    My Surefire L1 (Cree LED, 65 lumens on high) has been in my pocket since I got it in January. Just a fantastic "do-it-all" light.
    It's a tactical light first, meaning a light press gives you low, and all the way down gives you high output, so no clicking or
    twisting in a stressful situation. Very important for a tactical light that can also do the work of a utility light.
    (and not the other way around... an important distinction IMHO).

    I was finally able to get enough money together for a Surefire E1B, which is now my EDC primary light along with my Fenix EO5 on my keys.[​IMG]

    Nice pics GH! It looks like you broke the glass on your GITD fob I see, but it appears to be holding up otherwise.

    Main one is my gold-colored iTP EOS A3 on my main keychain. But likely to be replacing it soon since the head twists far too easily.

    Lately been EDCing my S.S. Maratac AA model. It used to be the main light in my large BOB. But I decided it was too nice to just put away in a BOB for emergencies.

    Doric the Fenix EO5 is attatched to my keychain and hangs outside my pocket but rubs against 2 keys and a snaphook which is what I think took the finish off the light.

    Thank's G.. It cost a little more than I like to pay for a light but I think the extra money I spent was well worth it. I am very satisfied with it. I want to try one of there headlamps next.

    Nice light JAfromMN! I thought about getting one of those just unsure of the UI, whether I would like it or not.

    Try one Keith I bet you'll like it. I prefer the Zebralight's UI to all my other light's.

    Alright fisk-king, that does it. your an obvious flashaholic and you need to slow down before it's too late. Errrggghh. I wanted a liteflux lf2 badly, the neutral white version, but was late to the party it seems because I couldn't find any available. Your light collection, from what I can tell, is fantastic.
