    40.1%
  2. Pocket sized (up to about 1 inch, including reflector)

    56.7%
  3. Larger (probably too big to be comfortable in a jeans pocket)

    22.3%

    Action shot. With a geartie most of the time I can leave the headlamp in the toolbox.

    Fenix LD22 right now. Generally I will keep it in the pocket, but if I want to lighten the load I'll stick it in the backpack where I know it is.

    I carry a Fenix PD20. Usually clipped onto my front pants pocket. I plan on replacing it with a EagleTac D25C.

    All three, and then some. :)
    1. I wear a 1xaaa light(Olight i3S) on a chain around my neck 24/7.

    2. My main EDC lights are all 1xcr123(Rofis JR10, Jetbeam BC10), in the 1"x4" range, carried clipped in a front jeans pocket.

    2.5 ;)
    And my Solarforce L2m in 1xcr123 mode, which does not fit your mid category because of the oversize bezel, but I still carry it in jeans pockets and can't tell its there, even with the large head diameter.


    3. I have a Nitecore MH25, 1x18650, a long, large reflector light, that I coat pocket carry if it looks like I'll be in more remote areas after dark.

    Other; I also have a headlamp in a jacket pocket at all times in the winter, for more convenient hands free light.

    I carry a Liteflux LF2XT almost 24/7, my go-to light for all daily tasks. My belt light has been a Dereelight CL1Hv4 host with an SST-50 dropin in it, however I'll be relegating that to the bag after all these years with it because its just too bulky, even in a belt holster. Still a great light and I'm pushing 500 lumens with it.. Just picked up a SOG Dark Energy 214 light with a package deal. I think I'm going to try that + the liteflux for a while.

    I usually carry a a Streamlight ProTac 1L CR123 in the sheath on my belt. When I am home I throw a AAA Inova XS in my pocket just to have a light on me. There are a couple of big maglites around the house for emergencies.

    I carry a Preon1, which handles most of my basic lighting needs. I also carry Fenix PD31, which I rarely need, but if I could only carry one, that would be it. Bright enough for anything I might need to light up, bright enough to make you see spots, long enough for kubotan use. There's also a fauxton on my keys that gets used sometimes.

    I'd like to know more about your 18350 light collection, and where you're finding good cells.

    When I'm all geared up for work I've got 3 1xAAA lights (1 keychain iTP EOS Upgraded SS and 2 in a leatherman holster: Fenix E05 and iTP EOS Upgraded Alu), one RCR123 light around my neck (BLF Mini) and a big'un on my belt (Armytek Viking 2.5).

    When I'm not working and not in PJs I've got the same neck light and a Solarforce L2M with an ALXM drop in.

    I have been toting a Fenix E11 for the past few months. I didn't normally carry a light on my person but the smaller size and weight have kept it in my carry. I'd like a couple more low- and medium- output modes, however. I think if I can find a willing donor for the E11 I will eventually pick up a Fenix E12. That seems to be everything I really need in an EDC light.

    I usually carry either a Four Sevens Quark 123x2 or a Elzetta Bravo in a belt pouch. I keep a Fenix TA-21 and LED Lenser headlamp in my EDC bag.
