    Currently I carry an Eagletac d25c in a pocket, but i'm looking at getting a Klarus mi model that I can carry on my keychain and save a bit of pocket space.

    If it weren't on my person, it wouldn't be EDC, now, would it?

    The only light I actually carry every single day is the little Fenix E01 on my key chain (1xAAA). It is as close to the perfect EDC light as I have ever come. It is small enough to actually carry on my key chain, bright enough for most every day tasks, and it gets a crazy runtime out of that puny little AAA battery. It is also built like a tank, and totally waterproof.

    In the dark half of the year, I often slip either my Fenix E11 or Lumapower EDC LM31 (both 1xAA) in my jacket pocket when leaving the house, though, and there is a Led Lenser T7 (4xAAA) in the glove compartment of my car.

    I EDC an Olight S15 on my person. I used to have a Leatherman Serac S2 on my keychain though, but the S15 took over that role.

    The only time I clip a flashlight on my pocket is for work (I work graveyard). My vinhnguyen modded v11r gives me 1-900 lumens on an imr16340 cell. During my weekend, my atom AO (aaa) is fine on my keychain.

    For pants pocket carry the D25aTi clicky and for jacket pocket or bag carry the D25cTi clicky love those two, almost never without a jacket or bag lately so its the c model that gets most use atm. But come summer and slacks and shorts weather ill just use the two interchangeably depending on wich one rides best in pocket.
    Both are small enough for opc, they're powerful enough and have modes, plus i love the design and look, very classy and sturdy at the same time.

    #2, I carry a Fenix PD35 on my belt. 5" long, 1" at the head. I live out in the country and when I need a light, I need a light. At 850 lumens, it's a great way to wake up the people across the street,
    Tell the difference between a cat and a skunk, and play tag with bears (just kidding). I carry it on my person because I don't always have a bag with me, and I believe it's one of those things you can't go with out.

    FourSevens Quark Mini 123 (HCRI run). In my pocket for the last 2 years and it's performed very well (and this is coming from a guy who typically doesn't like Chinese lights).

    If/when I'm able to carry something bigger, it's usually a 2-cell Surefire. 6P, Fury, E2E.
