    Default show us your everday flashlight

    Hey guys, I thought it'd be cool to see/read about what kinda light people prefer to use for everyday situations like walking dog at night, biking, looking for something in the dark, etc out of their collections.

    For me I'd probably have to go with my surefire e2d defender. It's a great small flashlight with plenty enough power. Runtime on HOLA (120 lumens) isn't so bad either :P. Having 76 hours of battery life on LOLA (5 lumens) is perfect for everyday situation. I love it . I am still to receive my M6 guardian but I think I would still rather carry the e2d only cause its size.

    The LF5XT is my EDC of choice - a useful beam, good runtime and 5 crazily definable light modes all wrapped up in a really pocketable form factor.

    I usually carry a Lego'd e1b with E2DL tailcap and e1e body. I'd show you but I can't post attachments yet

    How many posts are required before you can post attachments?

    I believe the ability to insert attachments directly into a post is at the discretion of the mods, the alternative (which most of us do) is to link to photos held on a photo hosting website.

    You axed for pics, and this is the only one I have of my EDC Fenix AA Q5 with anti-roll technology (I can never remember the non-intuitive Fenix names) .

    It gets rotated with a Fenix 2xAA Q5, and Fenix L0D AAA depending on my mood (I looked in my pocket for the name ).

    Among other things, here's the knife and lights


    • My MCE'd L4 is too bright for most occasions, but its good to have
    • The HO-E1R is a power-saving lamp that I find very useful around the house/campus/work/recreation, gets the job done and doesn't eat though batteries as with the EO-E1R
    • Red Gerber Infinity is perfect for most outdoor nights, enough light to illuminate whatever it is your looking at, unobtrusive of your vision or anyone around you.
    • Zebralight H50 very nice light to use at night [if you are alone], medium is just right for navigation and runtime is quite long, occasionally I set it to high and walk around. I find it to be a decent light to simulate the "wall of light" effect in light fog.

    The 10700 Naraga is the newest edition to the benchmade red class. I find it to be a very stylish design. It doesn't look tactical, nor are there any serrations and blends in whether it be black khakis, dress pants, or the everyday shorts. Quickly deployed, silently tucked away.

    I figured if I need to do cutting, I have a few cheaper cabelas knives I could dull with

    None of these torches are anywhere near scratched up enough to be everyday torches :P

    Now if only I had a camera and could show you my TK10 after 18 months in the pocket (aka the wars..)

    everyday torches doesn't necessarily mean it has to be dragged around in the dirt to justify for it...

    It does get covered in grease alot though

    Sorry, I just tried to resize the picture but every time I try it, it goes back to over 800X600 (which is what I have the picture saved as). Btw, nice keychain lights. I'm looking to get one of those soon .

    He probably carries it in his pocket Illum. Mine is the same gun but in brushed silver finish.

    I can't imagine the lint running around in the mechanisms. I've cleaned enough lint out of my knife to be convinced there's a miniature sheep in my pocket
