    Thanks! The leather holder fits in the pocket small and less of a chance to scratch up my knife or anything else.

    Prometheus Beta QR in Copper with the Nichia 219. Beautiful little light with 3 levels that max out around 80 lumens. Fantastic coloUr rendition.

    I have quite a few really decent lights; this is the one I recommend for people looking to spend less than $150.

    F8982D38-BD5D-4CA3-8A35-E1D656DE1E44.jpeg I carry a Lumintop Ti Tool that runs on a single Eneloop AAA battery. It is a clicky (3 speed) and will tail stand. I added an extra clip for baseball cap attachment. I carry an extra light instead of an extra battery. It also has a split ring option for key chain or neck chain carry.

    I tried to switch to an Olight s20 recently as my primary [belt] EDC having already experienced several other baton series lights as backup [pocket] carry and not liking the UI for that (I thought sheath carry may help avoid accidental turn on) but have since switched back to my trusty Zebralight SC62...

    I wanted to like the Olight, and would of upgraded to a newer rechargeable base version especially cause it's smaller than the zebra but my complaint with them is not providing direct access to medium unless it was also your last used mode...

    On zebra light you can double click (from off) directly to medium, on the baton lights you can only access medium from off it it happens to be the memorized mode.

    I've been carrying an Olight S Mini Ti for about a year. It's button operated w/good modes including a 'soft locking mode' that helps prevent accidental turn-on in the pocket.

    An L3 Illumination L10 (1 AA), or an Olight S1o Baton with rechargeable RCR 123A.

    My most carried light is a Muyshondt Maus. The small size & light weight make it an ideal keychain light, but the batteries are not common. For more frequent use, I like the Eagletac D25C Ti with Nichia 219 for high CRI.

    Streamlight micro most days. Occasionally a fenix EO5. I havent brought myself to spend much on a light and the budget options are sufficient for my needs.

    For the last year or two I've been using the Eagletac Ti AA Clicky. I wanted something about the size of a roll of dimes with a deep carry pocket clip, and ease of battery availability. I also like the combination of head twist and tail switch so that I can change the desired brightness before I even turn the light on.

    When I travel, I usually carry an old Surefire E2D. I also keep a rechargable Nitecore MH1C in my briefcase.

    NiteCore EA1 in my left side cargo pocket.
    Olight I3L on my key chain.

    I now prefer AA and AAA lights. I went through my CR123 phase but prefer a battery that can be found everywhere.

    Streamlight Microstream, I have tried many others but always go back to the microstream. I really like the size and simplicity for an edc flashlight. They recently released a USB version that I will be picking up soon.

    Depends...if I'm at work, I usually have a Peak Eiger Ultra X (copper) in my shirt pocket. I probably also have either a TX25C2vn or Seraph host/V54 P60 drop in (XPG2) in a rear pants pocket.
    If I'm out and about - this time of year - I've got a copper Olight R50 in my jacket pocket.

    In my backpack is a Nitecore EC4S.


    What can I say, I like to be able to see

    Edit: hey look, I already responded to this thread. :D

    +1 on the LD12, wish Fenix was US made, but can't fault the product.
