How large is your EDC flashlight

  1. Keychain sized (up to 1xaaa)

    39.5%
  2. Pocket sized (up to about 1 inch, including reflector)

    57.7%
  3. Larger (probably too big to be comfortable in a jeans pocket)

    22.0%

    I currently carry a AAA LED Maglight Mini clipped in my right front pocket next to my blade.

    I have a small cheap one in my pocket and a large spotlight thing in my pack right now cause I seem to be out in the bush or yard at night.

    I know this is EDC blasphemy, but I've stopped carrying a separate flashlight other than my iPhone. I went from AAA to the tiny Quantum D2, and I just don't use a flashlight very often. 99% of my flashlight needs are at home, so I keep my Zebralight SC52w on my nightstand. If I go anywhere for more than a few hours then I take the SC52w with me in my jacket, but for normal day to day life I just don't need a flashlight. If I do need a flashlight, my iPhone gets the job done. I still like to be prepared, so I have a flashlight in my backpack and car which I think is a no brainier. If I find myself missing my Quantum D2 more than once or twice I will throw it back on my keychain, but for now it's in my backpack.

    Fenix PD22 clipped to my pocket. Fenix HL50 in my bag. (Good mix of capabilities and they can share batteries)

    I eventually ditched the Solitaire in favor of the Maratac AAA Rev 3 in my pocket clipped to a homemade organizer.

    I love the Maratac, but I'm looking for a 18650 sized light to carry in my jacket pocket--currently intrigued by the Zebralight SC62 and the Sunwayman C25C Ti. Anyone have any advice concerning these models?

    I usually have a AAA Maratac in my trouser pocket, Nitecore CR123 in my jacket, and a Princeton Tec head torch in my work bag.

    I went on a flashlight binge, buying 24 lights in 6 weeks or so. The one light I always have with me is this same led lenser on my keychain. I usually have at least 1-2 more in my bag when I travel, but this is the one that's always with me.

    Largest one I EDC (on my person) is a 2AA mini-mag LED model. The newest one rated at 272 lumens. I absolutely use the included nylon belt pouch for belt carry. Pouch is cheap, but works well.

    I wear a Maratac AAA on my person,which easily handles most everyday tasks. As of now I keep a cheap energizer flashlight in my bag. It is used primarily as a back up and as a lending light. I also keep a coast headlamp tucked away in my bag as well. I find that in some situations having hands free light is essential. I have considered purchasing a higher power light for my bag, maybe a Trunite archer 2a or something.

    Fenix e01 on my keychain is all I carry. I tried using a separate light in my pocket but didn't want to keep up with one more thing.
