    I mostly wear jeans at work, and my Fenix E01 sits in the watch pocket.

    I work in an office setting, and wear slacks to work. My everyday light is the Fenix E01, which rides in my pocket. I have a Photon attached to my badge lanyard for the odd chance that I forget the Fenix.

    I EDC a Streamlight ProTac 1L in the little pouch it came in on my belt. On the scale it's a 1.5, larger than the AAA but smaller than my Fenix LD20. It's never let Mr down, even after dropping it in the mud and sludge a few times.

    When I am out and about, my Fenix PD30 rides in my front left pocket.

    For years my primary light has been my keychain light because I always have another light in my briefcase, car or house. For the keychain light, I progressed from a photon to a series of 1x CR123 lights. These lights were clearly a bit bulky for a keychain but I liked having a powerful light handy. Since last year I switched to a Quantum DD for my keychain and couldn't be happier; its almost as powerful as a single cell CR123 and much smaller and lighter. This light is supplemented with a pocket light when needed (eg, walking the dog at night) My current pocket light is Sunwayman V11r. For years I have had a Streamlight Stylus in my briefcase and it is still there. I also keep a large tactical light (Fenix) in the night table next to my gun and another (Surefire) in the kitchen junk drawer.

    I carry a Streamlight ProTac HL (2x CR123) in the front-left thigh pocket of my 5.11 taclite pros (only thing I wear... pants and shorts of the same variety).

    It is 600 lumen, has a tactical 3-mode switch... amazing light.

    I also have a backup ProTac 1L (1x CR123) in the MaxP Micro in my left leg pocket.

    Microstream clipped to left front pocket, replacing the. Inova XS that I previously pocket carried in the right front.


    If you don't carry it every day, it's not every day carry.

    I don't carry anything very exotic. :blink:
    • I always carry a Photon Freedom on my keychain.
    • I usually have either a MagLite Solitaire LED or a Fenix E01 in my coin pocket or a Streamlight Microstream clipped.
    • Maybe a Fenix E11 if I'm wearing a jacket.
    • In my backpacks it's a Mag XL50 or a Mag Mini AAA LED.

    All of the above. RCR123 Sunwayman M11r Ti (left pocket carry) and 1xAAA Copper Maratac rev 1 (right pocket carry) and Thrunite TN-31 in the bag...along with a little bitty SoLED clipped in the bag for night searches of the interior.

    I'm missing the Quantum I sold off and I need a Titanium Innovations, too.

    on my person a 2 AAA mini mag LED, needed some mods out the box, like a hose clamp to hold the pocket clip and soldering the tail cap srping to the holder that grounds the tail cap. my backpack has a 1 CR 123a flashlight and my work bag has a 2 AA mini mag LED

    I carry a Thrunite Ti firefly (aaa keychain) almost every day, suspendes from a small clip in jeans/slacks. Also carry a spare battery in a capsule on my keychain. Work in an office. Also have a Cree q5 (cheap single AA from ebay) in my bag, and sometimes on me to mix things up.
    Two cheap lights, an quality not top notch, but good enough for my needs. :-D
